The jute natural and black stripes carpet is a monochrome, neutral shade design stair runner. Try lending the same shades to the surrounding floor and walls. Use subtle variations of off whites on walls and even floors or rugs.
Make black the accent color in the design. Black can be effectively used in picture frames, banisters, door furnishings and, of course, stair rods. Side tables should also be black. Suggested lighting is clean and unobtrusive such as sunken spot lights.
This design theme is cool, subtle, and opulent.
