This totally makes me regret carpetting my stairs. Mind you I would have had exposed unfinished wood stairs with paint spilled all over them until today when I discovered this, but it's still great.

Colorful steps using different colored wallpaper. each wallpaper panel has pretty color along with white & a pattern.different patterns & colors as you go up the stairs.

This is just one of the projects that skilled stencil artist Melanie Royals did for Maryam of My Marrakesh fame. via apartment therapy
