Say No More to Dingy Stairwell.

I have this dirty, dingy, worn wool wall to wall carpeting in my stairwell that has surely seen better days (if that ever existed for this one). It’s a pretty common low price Berber style flooring that I believe was put in the 1990’s – way before we ever moved in but it’s really not a great choice for this two level Victorian condominium. From afar, it’s a calm neutral but within a few feet, it’s a matted down wet cat. So, my honey and I have selected an environmental solution of 100% New Zealand looped woolen with jute backing carpet by privately owned Australian wool carpet manufacturer Godfrey Hirst.

The stairwell as it looks now. New carpeting goes down in two weeks!

Godfrey Hirst  is known for their all natural floor covering options along with their ‘green’ operations. No artificial ingredients added. Since the interior decor consists of eclectic furnishings with neutral undertones and splashes of brown, camel, white and pale grey, I went with the sophisticated yet casual Counterpoint in the color Edge Cliff.

I love the tiny subdued pattern and way the sample looks against floor to ceiling walls in the confined space. It carries the brown accents from the zebra rug in the living room and the Moroccan rug in the dining room to the lower level.

Karen from Potomac Floor Covering helped me finalize the logistics for the install and will be sending her crew here in two weeks to transform the riders and landings for us. Pics to come soon!
