The same technique can be used to make a landing in a u shape that will be super durable because its made in one piece. Here are a lot of examples of the different landing treatments done the correct way . http://www.wholesalecarpets.co.uk/stair-runners-landing/ .You can also email the company and get free unique advice to make your stair runner job easy. .

Hello. Unfortunately, we do not have exterior paint color information to share, it was a custom mix by the builder on site.

Everyone has their own style & things they love so no one should decorate only on resale value unless that is something they plan to do in the near future.

Having said that, we bought a house last year that had been foreclosed on & got a good deal. The people had tried to sell it but had no luck & I think a lot of it had to do with paint colors. My husband called it the ketchup & mustard house because the living room, kitchen, hall & foyer were painted 2 colors-ketchup red & mustard yellow. There were several colors of yellow. (I can't live with yellow in my house but small amounts are nice in someone else's house.) There's 3 bedrooms. One was a light green which wasn't bad, one was an awful mustardy green & the last was Barney the dinosaur purple with bright red trim. They had also painted the bedroom doors & sliding closet doors to match. There were two rooms in the basement that were rust & baby blue (also with matching doors). There was nasty beige carpet everywhere. Ripping that out was the first thing we did. We painted everything. All trim & doors are white & really makes our wall colors pop. The main living areas are a medium taupe but I accent with red & blue & have dark furniture. The master bedroom is a very light taupe, but there's a lot of red and olive green decor in there & olive green walls in bathroom. Kids rooms are pale pink with bright colored decor & stormy gray with royal blue decor. I would rather have my main colors in the decor & my walls be more neutral, but not boring white.

I have seen beautiful rooms with white walls or with bright colors like apple green, burnt orange, turquoise, etc. I think its all in how you put the puzzle together.

We would love to sell in a few years & build, but we decorated to make us happy. Who knows, this could be the place we grow old in & we want to love it for as long as we are here.

Always decorate to make yourself happy. Always buy what you love. Never pass up something you find yourself obsessing about as soon as you leave the store - go back and get it! When decorating a new house it's a good idea to make a list of what you need and want. Start with the big things first. in each space, Include color hues, like "green velvet or linen couch" and "grassy rug or shag rug, neutrals." In 5 years you'll be thrilled you bought those 3 unique heirloom pieces which are the real "wow" in the room. Kind of like a grocery list, a decor list keeps you in the "buy this, not that" zone when you're out looking. Don't make the mistake of buying little inexpensive curiosities.........when you don't have the bookshelves built yet ! Every time you pass up a curiosity....(skull head bookends).......take what they cost and put it in a piggy bank instead. If every time you write yourself a check for what you resisted spending............by the end of the season you'll be surprised at how much money you will have. If you have a problem with over-buying, or over-spending.....start buying decor magazines and cut out pages of rooms you like. Use them for inspiration, finding things one at a time that are in the "inspiration space" Don't buy anything else. Don't make the same mistake we make with clothes sometimes. I have a friend who says she buys "clothes for her closet"...............So Every year she gives away things with tags hanging on them. Add that up, and it's a new lamp. Home Decor is way too expensive to make that mistake. And one good tip about white: Really look at the rooms you admire which are all white. Look at the details in the room. I'm sure there are many. Either carved, stacked, textured, and milled. If you just bought a house with standard moldings, baseboards which are small, and tons of sheet rock.up to those high ceilings - well, you may be really dissapointed if you paint out everything white. You don't want to feel like you live in a Sheet Rock Cathedral.
