Yesterday our carpet in the nursery was installed. We ended up finding the carpet we really, really liked at Alexanian Carpet & Flooring about 1 month ago.
We went to the Laird + Eglinton location and the style of carpet that I fell in love with was a Godfrey Hirst Wool Carpet. I liked that it had some texture to it, and really liked the waffle look.
Since we needed to order carpet in 12 ft width - and the room was between 8-9 feet wide, we decided to use the remnant for the runner to the basement. It cost a little extra for the binding cost, but it was less expensive than if we were to order a runner later seperately.
I'll take better "day" pictures tomorrow, but wanted to post an update! It makes such a HUGE difference in the nursery and I now don't have this fear of slipping down the stairs. ;)
