What color/brand are the stairs ad rail painted? Cute idea with the runner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The designer gave the staircase a punch of color by painting on a runner — a vibrant, budget-friendly alternative to a carpet runner.
Do low-VOC ingredients make a difference in price?Today, Environmental Protection Agency regulations ensure that paint companies produce most of their product with low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) content. Low-VOC paints used to cost more, but that's not necessarily true today. Low VOC "is one of many elements in the formulation of a paint product, and it is the overall quality of ingredients and formulation of those ingredients that impact the price of the product," says Schmitt.Tell us: What are your favorite paints to use? What is your experience with different brands and price ranges?More: How to Paint Interior WallsHow to Work With a House Painter
Perfect pairing. I like a green such as emerald, kelly or apple best paired with crisp black and white. It's a graphically bold and fresh move.
6. Give the stairs a bold new look. An entry that opens into a stairwell can feel a bit boring. Make sure yours puts a smile on your face by employing bold strokes of color and embracing positive memories with a photo wall.Try this: Paint a runner on your stairs by taping off the middle section and coating with the color of your choice. Match your picture frame color to the runner for a fresh, coordinated look.
Fred Albert added this to Flights of Fancy: Painted Stair Runners
White risers and black treads are unified by an emerald runner, which also happens to echo the color of the picture frames on the back wall.Tip: Allow about 4 inches between each edge of the runner and the wall. Increase this amount for staircases that are wider than normal.

thinness of the top trim piece. many i've seen are quite large, almost look like crown molding. since i have to put a railing on that side, I want to make sure it doesn't get lost w the trim behind it.
