We’ve been FLOR’d

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?


We’re so excited that the design worked out and totally tickled that our son loves it as much as we do.

Have you designed your FLOR lately?
