Upstairs and downstairs....

This might sound vaguely odd, but that's never stopped me before. Those are lovely steps and look like they'd be very comfortable to sit on. I can imagine my young and small self sitting there, having a cookie, and enjoying the luxurious softness of that carpeting.

Suldog: you better not leave any cookie crumbs on the carpet....

I like visiting homes where we have to take our shoes off. :-)

Oooohhh - I love that pattern! Gorgeous carpet. It must feel soft underfoot (especially barefoot).

Lovely carpet. It reminds me of the carpet at the house I stayed while going to school in Essex, England, same stairs too. Are you sure you are in Canada ?

Lovely carpet, so light and smooth looking, but not for a family, who owns a big dog :)

Thank you so much for your comments.
I came just home after being a week with Melli ( 2year 7months ) and Mikael (4months )Both had got a flu and Melli had also a sore leg. You can believe, I was needed. And now I am tired and in flu.
But we have already much light and white snow is covering still everything, landscapes are shining as they always do in March.
Your spring is nearer - enjoy!
Warm greetings also to both of your grandchildren.

I love everything about this carpet. The soft palate of the carpet against the dark wood, the border in the pattern that shouts "custom-made", and how expertly it is installed. Speaking of installed, is there a lip at the edge of every step so that the rug is rolled against it? I'm trying to figure out how it is so skillfully secured without those unsightly brass rods.
