This is an oil-based paint, all the same color. It's holding up well, but this staircase isn't the main one, so doesn't get a ton of use.

The landing is not painted. Honestly, I have the paint color in my notes and my notes are at my cape house. Sorry for the delay but I won't have those notes until Friday August 31. I will get back to you then.

The carpet looks like it doesn't match the walls! it really is exactly the same colour! Bad camera angle and poor lighting.

How do you choose the white? Should it be the same color as the trim? We are doing behr decorator white on our ceiling and trim. Could we do that for the stairs too?
