A new welcoming

So now that Spring has finally sprung here in Ontario, it’s all about updating and freshening up.  This past week I was helping a client do just that by giving her entry a new feel.

Some fresh graphic wallpaper is the key piece and it will help make a grand statement to all who arrive.  The new dark hardwood floor and dark mirror will ground the space and complement the soft grey walls.  A hint of silvery metal in the pendant, tray, coat rack and hardware will give a little sparkle.  Texture comes in from the paper, baskets, and mens-wear grey inspired fabric on the ottoman. A classic console and an octagon shaped mirror make a great match and the blue vase and flowers are a little finishing touch to pull in the blues in an adjoining room.

I can’t wait to see it completed!

A whole new Flor

No, it’s not a spelling mistake in my title, I’m talking about Flor tiles.  What are Flor tiles? They are remarkable carpet tiles that are cleanable, removable, durable and eco-friendly, as they are recyclable when they come to the end of their lifespan.

I’ve been wanting to try them out for quite a while now and after hearing how much Maureen loved them, I was anxious to try them out.

I have been wanting go change up my entryway carpet for a very long time, but hadn’t found anything that I was in love with.  So, now I’m thinking this is the perfect fit.  I made sure and chose a pattern and colour that would hide the dirt that gets traipsed in.  And since, I have quite a bit of blue to my home, a cheerful dark blue was just the thing.

Remembrance in Tidal

Described by them as “Our take on distressed Turkish rug patterning in saturated hues and bold neutrals for an heirloom-worthy design. This style features a random pattern designed to vary from square to square, so patterns will not always align.”

I am absolutely in love with the over dyed look of them and it certainly brightens up my entrance and ties in the navy sofa I have in my adjoining living room and the soft blue chairs I have in my family room.

And another thing I love about Flor tiles, is that when I’m having a large crowd over I can just add the two extra tiles I purchased, to make a little more space, to take off and put on boots.

They have so many styles and types of carpet tiles that I’m sure you’ll find exactly what you are looking for.
