I see this and I get angry. Why? Because the person that says this and cannot nor does not forgive and can't treat me like a person looks like a complete hypocrite! Say what you mean, mean what you say, and walk the walk before you talk the talk!!!
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.
