If you enjoy animal print and find cheetah overdone, this this THIS is what you could chose. The antelope print pattern is speckled with varied sizes of white spots; like a surprise dusting of large snow flakes on caramel-coloured earth. I just loved it in Nicole Hanley Mellon’s home as covered by Vogue (see image above). Read more
This wine box crate inspired floor line by European based Parador is truly inspiring! The Wine and Fruits laminate floor collection is a nod to the repurposed looks we’ve noticed. The interesting stampings from different vintage crate samplings are an incredible way to add a unique texture to any room.
Spot on! I have been looking for a cheetah print rug for so long! And there you were all along in your gorgeous spotted fibres. Stanton Carpets actually has an entire line of animal prints for carpet as hot as this little number above called Lake Jaguar, like bagira and serpentine. What I’d really like to do? Cut it up for stair runner and have it bound along the edges in black for a punch.
POW! BOFF! BAM! No, you aren’t reading onomatopoeia’s from a Batman comic, but these would be the sounds of colour and pattern coming to life from an Amy Butler Rug. Each pattern of these hand-tufted rugs are bursting with vibrancy. Gone are the wash of blah blah neutral throw rugs, kick it up a notch and live alittle, and for goodness sake add some much needed colour in your life. Oh my, these rugs do get me going don’t they? This hot number is called Caracas.
Artistic Tile carries an irresistible interlocking stone mosaic tile line called “Chateau”. There are four styles available, this one is named Danse Blanc. The scrolling coils of marble seem to defy the very properties of cold stone. The flawless patterns are achieved by their modern technology of waterjet to produce a perfectly intertwining tile. Made to order, these custom tiles can be ordered in other tones and stone combinations.
New on my radar is a fantastic company; Preverco. Preverco has one of the most versatile product lines available allowing you to choose plank size, hardwood to engineered, and stains to suit all levels in your home. And this hardwood has made me super excited, check out the Zebra 5 3/16″ plank hardwood, it is outstanding! It is no wonder this product is winning the praise of fellow designers; this floor is HAUTE! The red oak flooring is striking with rich black graining, and a white all over stain. Not for the faint of heart, this floor hits a high note with contemporary and fun-traditional design. Picture lots of black paired up with this! I am seeing a trend leaning toward getting back to grains, and why not with domestic, local wood. Well done Preverco.
