Design Tips by Shaw Flooring
WHAT DO I WANT MY HOME TO FEEL LIKE?
Ask yourself this? “What do I want my home to feel like when I walk into the door?” “Do I want it to be a quiet oasis with soothing color palettes?” This can be achieved by layering multiple patterns in fabrics and soft luscious carpets.The soft surfaces not only absorb irritating noise, but also insulate the interior space. What’s more soothing than kicking off your shoes and wiggling your toes in the soft carpet.
CALL ME COSMO
If you have always wanted to live in a skyscraper overlooking Central Park but reside in the heart of “suburbia”, guess what? You can achieve the look of cosmopolitan living in subtle but effective ways. Silvery gray and mysterious plum are suggestions of colors that speak to the city lifestyle.Taupe, weimeraner gray, and a variety of browns also work well into the city palette.
RULE NO. 1: THERE ARE NO RULES
Colors are more adaptable than you might think and they don’t just disappear after a season. Gradually lighter or darker over time, color can give your room the flexibility you need to express the style you love.
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
Don’t be afraid of your favorite color. If it makes you feel good when you use it in a room, then use it on your floor, the largest area.
