This style home with the grand entrance hallways and the stairs being one of the first visual points just cry out for a carpet stair runner just like this one. I love the strips, and the colours are gorgeous especially against the pale walls and on the real stained wood floor. I also love how the photo gallery runs up the stairs, all of this just makes you want to explore further. Although if it was me I would have maybe thrown in a few coloured frames too.
If you're feeling a little bolder and braver, try a much less subtle use of green and make a real style statement with a bright hit of green somewhere in your home. Here, the emerald green velvet staircase contrasts with the fun wallpaper to create a really exciting and engaging space.
We are no stranger to this gorgeous home. (see the original feature here!) But this tour from MyDomaine is a new take on an already stunning space. Designed by Irene Lovett of Designstiles, it gives cozy pastels and traditional pieces a breath of fresh
