The Happy Staircase Rug Installation with Centsational Girl

When faced with a decorating dilemma like a particle-board staircase covered in dirty, dated, worn-out carpet, we like to ask ourselves, WWCGD (What would Centsational Girl do)? Lucky for us, Kate herself has answered this very question in a new blog post on creating a fun, functional, and—dare we say?—adorable hallway by installing a runner on a staircase.

After tearing out the old carpet, Kate painted the stair treads a beautiful sea green, then topped them off with Dash & Albert’s best-selling Stone Soup woven cotton rug. The runners pick up the green and blue tones in the paint, plus add some grounding taupes and tans—and a splash of chipper hot pink and tangerine to liven up the look.

Find out how Kate accomplished this stairway transformation right here.

Cute, cute cute! I could see applying your #Dash and Albert rugs as runners in a beach house
