My house was built in 1891. In addition to uninsulated horsehair plaster walls, we should have some pretty sweet hardwood floors, right? Well...while the hardwood floor downstairs looks great, the floor on the stairs and the second story is covered in carpet. I suspect because the hardwood is in bad shape. I haven't peeked yet. My husband won't let me. Still, in my mind, I've moved right past the hard work of refinishing the floor....to dreaming of stair runners. As any practical girl would.
I'm leaning towards a striped runner. Now if I can just get my allergist to call my husband and make him pull up the carpet.
