This is what we have right now on our stairs. Just a basic neutral color carpet that is very old.
I would really LOVE to rip up the carpet, and paint the steps white, and put a runner all the way down. Something like this that I found on Shelterness.

I love the all white stairs with the colorful runner. So as we get to work on this project I will be sure to share with everyone! Where do you go shopping when it comes to creating your own stair runner? I would love to hear your suggestions.
