Dark Red Stair Carpet

This is part of the 1966 West Avenue set which has been brought up to date and shows the hall and stairs as it would look if the house had just been purchased and refurbished by its new owner.

The property is a three bedroom, semi-detached house built just before the Second World War and is similar to many thousand that exist in the United Kingdom.

A first for me, this is, I think, my first carpet design and, in fact, this design was intended solely as stair carpet. So many houses that I see on the internet do not have decorative carpeted stairs which I think makes them look very ordinary, plain and non-descript. This design, which has strong mid-century roots and also mid-century colours, is intended to look good, enhance the dimensions of the stairs and prove inviting for both a visitor and the homeowner.

I have used chrome bars to run across each stair in order to hold the carpet in place, although it would be equally good with any other form of modern fastening.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns on my fabulous and ever-growing Flickr page which is here.
