Word from OUR Wise : Solids

“Nature doesn’t do solids…”

Any kid knows that a tree trunk is brown; but, why does it look so flat when rendered by a crayon?  The reason:  it is actually made up of a series of beautiful neutrals that blend to form a solid.  We’ve taken a queue from nature on this one.  When we do “solids” at FLOR, it often looks like this rug, where several shades of Feelin’ Groovy in purple combine to create “a solid color.”

Tip: Incorporating multiple shades of one color will create more possiblities when coordinating with colorful patterns.
