Step by Step
I've been looking for a nice way to add some sort of no-slip grips to the stairs up to my office. Our dog Lucy is afraid to climb down the stairs because she has slipped a couple of times in the past. But everything I have seen has been a little too utilitarian (like sticky sandpaper on a roll from Home Depot).

I found the perfect solution via a product ad at the back of Dwell Magazine, and now have a new carpet obsession:
Liza Phillips Design.

These are the stair runners:

And there are full rugs and runners as well:

About Us

Christopher Scott and Jodi Vautrin are the husband and wife team behind Ourhaus, where they chronicle their adventures in home improvement, decorating and travel. After purchasing a unique loft space just a few miles north of Boston, they began photographing and writing about their projects and it blossomed into a creative outlet and platform.

When they’re not home improving, Jodi spends her days as a freelance creative director & designer with a focus on user interface and interactive design, and is an entrepreneur at heart. She serves on the board of AIGA Boston as Vice President of Emerging Ideas & Events.

In his professional life, Christopher is the Technology Director for a multi-service ad agency based in Harvard Square. In his private life, he enjoys tinkering in all its forms, whether it's rebuilding the Ourhaus home network (again), fooling himself into thinking he knows how to fix home appliances, or trying to unravel the mysteries of the guitar. He also flies planes, performs open heart surgery and sings at bar mitzvahs (though not all at the same time).

They share their “haus” with their adorable, highly food-motivated chocolate lab, Lucy.
