The Basement Stairs
I went for funky and contrasting. I painted the stairs to the basement a lime green and a eggplant purple. Why purple and green? Because, at least purple, will never make it to the walls of a room. I alternated the dark color with a light color for visiblity. I purposely made the last step light green so that I could never blame the dark color for missing the last step. It's a funky look but I like it!
