It involved this:
A beautiful shade of yellow, inspired by Young House Love. It is bright and vibrant and just glows!
It covered up my black front door. Here are some before shots:
Before, the door was painted black. Our stair railing was a light oak and the stairs were painted with a tan color. The old runner had loads of use with the previous owner so it was in rough shape.
The door adds so much life to the space! It looks fantastic from the outside too! I painted that little table with the lamp a turquoise blue to accent the black and yellow. It adds a punch of color!
I added a geometric print to the stairs, black and white diamonds. It was inspired from Pinterest, of course. All of the ones I saw on Pinterest involved outdoor carpet, but I wanted something more lasting and sturdy! I found this beauty and was hooked. The space looks cleaner now!
I painted the old oak railing black to give it a more modern feel. It really changed the space immediately!
Here is a close up of the stair runner. It looks bold and graphic and welcoming! I love when a space comes together!
