MMM: A Stairway To Heaven

My house is quite quirky in design. With 3 bedrooms upstairs, there is also a little attic bedroom with a separate staircase. This is where we keep the baby.

I joke! It’s super-cute and I love the fact she’s got her own little domain – which was featured here.

While the main staircase has a grey runner carpet, I have kept Lila’s little staircase as plain wood with painted risers. But we have one feature wall covered in Cole & Son’s Cow Parsley wallpaper that I have quite have often considered using on the  risers of the attic staircase to continue the theme.

Decorating stair risers is not an unusual idea on wooden stairs, but one that looks really effective.

I have found some amazing images that have inspired me. I could stick to the colour theme of yellow and grey, or perhaps use a stripe or alternate print and plain riser idea up the 10 steps leading to my girl’s bedroom.

Here are ten ideas I really love – the yellow and white would look amazing:
