Goodbye Off White Carpet!

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. Β Until last weekend πŸ™‚

They opened a Floor n’ Decor in Woodbridge, VA this month and I made a trip last weekend to check it out in person. Β 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. Β 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!
