I’ve been living with off white carpet since I moved into my place three years ago. Here’s a pic from move-in day, every room has the same carpet, and every wall and ceiling a shade of vanilla.
I’ve added more modern paint colors to the walls, below is warm grey (Bedford Grey) paint from Martha Stewart’s paint collection with a light silver stencil from Royal Design Studio in the master bedroom.
I’ve known for a while that I wanted to replace the carpet with laminate flooring but had only been lurking around flooring sections without pulling the trigger. Until last weekend 🙂
They opened a Floor n’ Decor in Woodbridge, VA this month and I made a trip last weekend to check it out in person. One of my friends bought granite tile and laminate flooring from them and I’d seen for myself that they held up well.
I ended up walking out with 1200 square feet of Monaco French Bleed Laminate.
Which I’ll be installing myself…….. and storing in a small condo in the meantime. Should be interesting……
I’ll be picking up 90 boxes of laminate with a rented cargo van this weekend to bring home, at least my neighbors will be entertained by this madness.
Have a great weekend!
