Entries in stairs (3)
I really appreciate your advice and was very surprised to see my post on your blogsite so quickly. (I didn't realize it was so lengthy - sorry!) The photos you showed are great and it's good to know the difference between the way nylon broadloom and wool runners would lay. For some reason, I don't mind seeing the custom wrap when the carpet covers the entire tread between spindles, but wasn't so sure I liked it with a runner. Boy, now I've got more thinking to do and more questions. Are you a fan of turn-and-tuck or not? Would the Masland pattern I picked lend itself any better to finished edges or turning them under? If I switched to an oriental-look runner, would it matter that I have other "oriental" area rug patterns in the foyer and the DR and hallway which open onto it? Here are some photos so you can get an idea what I'm working with.Please don't mind my 'cheap' silks (the plant next to the desk is real) - I hadn't read your advice about that until yesterday! :) Feel free to comment about anything you see (or don't). Thanks, Carol
Can you see the difference? The wool waterfalls nicely, the nylon should be custom wrapped(even with serged edges). (it is hard to use a beautiful staircase like the one above as a poor example, but that is what I am trying to do :) Can you see how this picture below is nicer?
