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.
