Ah, a New Year ahead! Typical, as self confessed design junkies- we are looking ahead and seeking out what is new and fresh- aka what worked years ago that we got sick of and are now ready to see again.
So, what are we thinking for floors in 2018? High impact floors- black or white! And thin!
Our design style ranges so much with our projects- eclectic to traditional, Scandinavian to California casual- and some have all of these elements combined! The good news is a black or white hardwood floor compliments or even highlights these designs. See below:
BLACK HARDWOOD // The original chic "must have" flooring has been around forever. While we abandoned this style in recent times for lighter, wider planks, its always been a classic. This look goes best in a home that is architecturally significant- with character building windows and detailed millwork. Usually older homes in larger cities can take on such a dark floor. New builds and track developments still look best with wider natural plank floors.
WHITE HARDWOOD // The impossibly cool counterpart to dark floors, white floors have been a personal design dream of mine for many years- Ive only never had the gull to do it- but Im still claiming it as one of the floor styles I'd like to see in 2018 (Future clients, you've been warned!). This style goes best with a natural and minimal furniture scheme- to keep everything calm, cool and livable. Using those earthy elements are key to creating the right environment, without having it go institutional- yikes. Bonus! If your floors are too beat up to refinish, painting them can give a new, cooler life!
So thats it for now. Until we meet again,
