I think stair runners have an elegant beauty to them. They automatically make your home look nicer (and hopefully will make someone want to buy our house one day soon!)
So I've been dreaming of stair runners. That's normal, right?
While I'd love to do something bright and flashy to match with my own style (see the lime green geometric print three down on the right? Or the lime green and navy striped one three down from that? Swoon!), I know that since selling our home is in our hopeful near future, I should stick with a more muted color palette in a pattern that will hopefully bring prospective buyers in.
On another note, does anyone know where this (above) photo is from? What store has this amazing stair runner assortment, because I want to go there!! I found the photo on Pinterest, but would love to know it's source if anyone knows!
So even though we'll be sticking to a more neutral color palette, I still want to bring in a nice, modern feel to really pull the entire house together. Here are some of my favorites.

9 Stair Runners that are in the Running
So, now it's time to go shopping. Here are the 9 runners that are in the running, but I'm wondering if there are other retailers out there I'm not thinking of. Have you purchased runners before? Where did you buy them from?
Which ones are you liking? I'd LOVE to have #4 in my home, but that's probably not smart when I'm thinking about selling. But gosh-y I love that one.
