FLOR story : Blending Styles

FLOR was the perfect solution for this Pennsylvania family.  They needed a beautiful rug to provide a bit of style and durablity.  Check out how FLOR’s Shirt Stripe tile did the trick.


Dear FLOR,

My husband and I recently remodeled our dining room and throughout the process we were looking for a more contemporary look that would blend with the style of our colonial home as well as suit our needs having a Yellow Labrador Retriever.  Having battled with traditional areas rug in the past, we absolutely love the versatility of FLOR and its ease of cleaning (especially pet hair!)   We chose a parquet pattern of Shirt Stripe Flor tile in Lounge Stripe and we absolutely love it.  We are still working on the final decorating touches of our dining room; however, I wanted to share a photo of our progress.  We are now in the process of choosing FLOR options for our living room. Thanks for creating such a unique and user friendly product!

A Simple (But Genius!) DIY

Introducing… my new favorite chair of all time:

Sure, I'm tiring quickly of the typography and Ampersand trend, but with a statement chair like this (and a so, so well executed upholstery job!), can you ever really go wrong?

Lisa Barrett whipped this beauty up with fabric from AuntyCookie on Etsy. The look is perfectly vintage industrial and can suit hundreds of different spaces. Bonus? The black is upholstered in black and white stripe. I do love a good surprise ending, don't you?

Kudos to you, Lisa! Very well done.

p.s. If do so say myself, the creation would complement our In Stitches pattern perfectly, yes? Happy decorating!

Best Dresser Ever

Kara Haupt shared these photos of her bedroom nearly a year ago, and they are still so far on the forefront of my mind. I simply can't get this sweet little dresser out of my head. Rather than leaving it simple and white, Kara grabbed a pencil and some paint and free-handed typographic labels on each drawer. Genius, yes?

The knobs are Anthropologie finds (of course!), and I love how they give the black paint a softer, swirly touch.

Why not try this look at home? I can't think of a simpler before and after that will brighten your home, room and outlook faster than you can say, "Honey, the paint's dry!"

Happy crafting!
