Simple in a narrow hallway. White painted stairs make them appear wider and the grey runner is both practical and elegant. Seek out a slim console - vintage or modern - thats useful and decorative but not space-consuming.
This color scheme! we tore the carpet off of our stairs and did the beadboard risers with wood treads and white pickets.but I'm thinking I'd love to do the walls leading to the stairs with this style trim work/bead board. Wow does that look awesome!
