Hi - this is GORGEOUS carpet. When I looked up the carpet online, it looked very beige/brown -- http://camelotcarpetmills.com/carpet/pursuit#PRSUT2812 . I'm sure it's just the lighting in this Houzz/stair picture that makes the carpet look so much lighter/brighter, but I just wanted to double check that Camelot Pursuit Notoriety was the exact carpet from this picture? I want to be sure because I'm really thinking about putting this in a room in the near future. Thanks so much!

Kara, Where can I find these false wood treads and risers, such a good idea!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you can't find a solid newel post you like, or you want something more massive, a box newel can be made out of stock boards and applied moldings, creating a post like the three pictured here. Because the interior framing will be covered up by the finish carpentry, it is easier to anchor this type of post.Also, take note of the recessed step lights along the wall. We started this ideabook talking about safety. Good lighting is critical, and lighting focused on the treads allows you to illuminate the stairs safely without overlighting the rest of the space. The runner pictured here also protects the stairs and makes them less slippery, reducing falls. Safety first, safety last. Happy climbing!More stair guides:How to Get Your Stair Runner Right10 High Designs for the HandrailCantilevered Stairs: Walking on AirArtful Stairs: Continuity in Steel

Kara Bowman Hi there. This actually is not a carpet runner. It is actual carpet installed with false wood treads and risers on the sides. This is done to have the look of a runner but the maintenance and durability of a high quality carpet. It also has consistency with the rest of the carpet in the house. This particular carpet used is Camelot - Pursuit, Color: 2812 Notoriety. Hope this helps :)
