We love FLOR tiles!!! They foster what seems like an endless supply of creativity and imagination on our side and because you’re always adding new designs we’ve never needed to shop any place else in the past three years . Our modern style is important to us yet we also want to ensure that our place feels warm, functional and practical too. We have an energetic dog and a tornado (otherwise known as a cat) that chase each other around the house from FLOR rug to FLOR rug. So, your tiles have clocked loads of mileage over the past three years but you’d never know it by looking at them! And, when there’s “emergency” clean-up around the house the FLOR tiles are usually involved. Tail wags + Red wine = 911. What we’ve found though is that what doesn’t wipe right up with a microfiber cloth and cold water goes into the kitchen sink for a hose down and then back to the floor like new. We’ve shared this story many times with friends and family and it’s hard for them to imagine so much durability in a floor covering. Of course, what most folks admire most about the tiles is that they’re a SIMPLE and SUPER STYLISH addition to every room in our house. Attached is a snap of our latest creation: a modern take on Toy Poodle in Plum, Purple, Pewter and Bone. LOVE IT!

WOW…we’re overwhelmed by the amount of submissions! Thanks to all who participated in last week’s giveaway. Our winner of the 20 tile combination of Toy Poodle and Rake Me Over is… Diane K ( I love Lime, Clementine, and Persimmon; either two of these colors combined or one with contrasting texture would be just right for my home. I’m thinking I’d have to show it off in the living room, but it would also look nice on our second-floor landing). Congratulations Diane!

We are soooooo almost done with my son’s big boy bedroom and I can’t wait to show you the big reveal…unfortunately, you’re just going to have to hold on a bit longer. You see, the final piece that will go in there is a train table that he is inheriting from his cousin…but my mom can’t bring it up from PA until we call to tell her the baby is on the way. So that means early November. Sorry all…you’ll just have to be patient!
In the meantime, his new FLOR tiles arrived the other day and I took some time to put them together.
If you’ll recall from my original mood board, I had designed something with different shades of gray and pops of orange.
Here’s a better view of the screenshot of what I originally proposed by utilizing the FLOR builder.
I liked it…but it wasn’t exactly screaming awesome to me. I wanted to keep the orange pieces towards the middle of the rug, but couldn’t figure out exactly how to do it without having any of them touch…so I kept designing until I came up with this plan:
This was composed of Toy Poodle squares in Cloud, Titanium, Sterling and Fog with pops of Rake Me Over in Clementine. If you’ll recall from this post, I planned on having each square represented in the picture below actually be a quarter square. Even though I have lots of experience with trimming FLOR tiles, and even though it is really easy, I decided to give my ultra-preggo self a break and had FLOR custom cut them for me for a nominal fee. TOTALLY worth it in my humble opinion!
The tiles arrived on Friday around 2:00pm and by 2:45 this was the scene in his bedroom:
The kid is IN. LOVE. with his new FLOR tiles. Every day he gets out of bed and immediately lies down on the rug with his head on one of the orange squares and insists that we join him…a proposition that is none too easy for me at this point in my pregnancy. But how can you resist that face?
Have you designed your FLOR lately?
