Instant Style: Patterned Runners



Lacking space for furniture and more traditional decoration, staircases are often completely forgotten and are, well, a bit bland! One way to add instant style and visual interest is to install a bold runner. A runner does not have to exactly match the other rugs in the home - in fact, I love the eclectic contrast when it doesn't. I adore all kinds of patterns, but at the moment, I am especially crazy for stripes. If you have stairs that need a pop of unexpected pattern and are feeling crafty, this is a really great guide to DIY runner installation. 

And here are some of my favorite runner inspirations to get you started . . . 









These last two are actually painted directly on the treads. What a clever and low cost alternative!

Would you ever try this look at home? 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
