treads - I love that the treads on these stairs aren't traditional bullnose treads...what material was used for the treads?

Think the Stairs are Oak, with a clear sealer used on steps and arbourite or a similar product as coloured risers. Sides of stairs painted to match walls. Ellie McGrenere

So, how to I recreate the look of the tread? Maybe use just an oak 2x12 cut to fit? I'm wondering if this might be considerably cheaper than buying pre-made treads? I wish there were better photos of the treads here...so I could see it a little better.

How do you prevent scuff marks from people's shoes? - We just painted our risers white and put a floating floor on top. When people go up or down they accidentally scuff the riser.

Paint colors - Can you tell me what the exact paint colors are on each stair in this photo? I love them and think they would work perfectly - and I have the same amount of stairs. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Budget Decorator: 16 Fab Spring Updates for Very Little Green
1. Paint stair risers a rainbow of hues. You won't be able to help smiling when you climb the stairs each day if they are painted in such a cheerful range of colors. For the best effect, choose colors that are all similar in tone: pastels, clear midtone colors or deep and rich.
Toronto Interior Design Group | Yanic Simard added this to These Rustic Accents Can Really Make Your House Feel Like Home
Soft rustic paint. Faded pastel paint colors are lively and approachable, whether they come on a piece of vintage country furniture or a fun DIY project like this multicolor staircase. Look for colors in a similar tone (generally the same position on a paint chip) to tie them together, and use a matte finish to really capture the rustic feel. Surround your project with white or gray to keep the look contemporary but playful.
