A closer look at the stairs and dresser shows the subtle geometric pattern of the carpet runner and the bamboo trim of the dresser. Wainscoting follows up the slope of the staircase, and along the side behind the dresser.
Like the idea of a board above the backpack area. That would be a great place to write down things needed for the next day of school. With 5 kids I'll really need this lol. I think I'll do a white board instead of the chalk board but this is a great idea.
