Greys and Stripes

Not my usual sort of post but I've been a away for a bit and this is something I've been spending some time on.  Our house is a newish build and most of the walls are still their original magnolia.  We'd toyed about with the idea of striped carpet on our stairs and landing for a while and have finally bit the bullet and done it.  This is the before...

And this is the after!

The stripes aren't for everyone I know but I like them.  

New Stuff
The walls are Eglise Grey by Crown Petit Palais and inspired by this post on Florence Finds blog. Who knew finding the right grey would be so difficult?  It is quite a subtle grey but we were worried about going too dark.  The new light fittings are "prism collection pendants" from Dunlem Mill for £19.99 each.  The carpet is from Carpet Right.

Existing Stuff
Photo frames are from Ikea and the butterfly picture was a gift from Mr L from Etsy I believe.  The hall table is from Argos and the mirror from Dunelm.  The black floor tiles were super cheap ones from B&Q about 6 years ago! Chadelier upstairs from Laura Ashley.

What's left?
I'm going to change the lamp and have a new coat hook thing ordered which I will put up soon!

So there you have it. I hope you like it as much as I do.  Now I just have to try to remember I'm not allowed to wear shoes upstairs *huffs*

  1. I just LOVE it. I'm a real fan of these stripey carpets and would love the berry toned stripey one for our stairs and landing. Won't be happening this side of Christmas tho! xxx

    1. Aww thanks! Berry would be beautiful, and so festive if you could get it before Crimbo ;)
