MODERN DESIGN is characterized by clean lines, minimalist decor, and a monochromatic color scheme. ORGANIC MODERN adds to this the use of natural materials, including reclaimed wood, stone, leather, linen, raw or burnished metal, and concrete to express a natural feel.
This color board features SHAW Natural Boucle, a wonderful sisel-like carpet and ENGINEERED FLOOR’S Renewal Mesa Verde, a deep rustic luxury vinyl plank that adds rich texture to any space. A stair runner from the ANDERSON TUFTEX Speak Collection compliments the other flooring choices in this look.
TRADITIONAL interiors are based on 18th and 19th-century European styles. We think of crown molding and paneling; Queen Anne cabriole legs and inlaid wood; pinch pleat drapery and French Country wallpapers.
TRADITIONAL UPDATE modernizes this style by making it less formal and more comfortable. For example, traditional kitchen cabinetry may be reinterpreted with a bright white satin finish and a contemporary quartz countertop. The kitchen is now open to the dining area and is all on the same rich wood flooring.
The color board for this style features SHAW engineered flooring from the Expressions Series, color FREEFORM. In the dining area an ANDERSON TUFTEX area rug from the Taza Collection in Desert Tan anchors the dining room furniture. The pantry features EAGLE CREEK luxury vinyl plank from the Evolution Collection.
FARMHOUSE MODERN design takes the comfortable, relaxed farmhouse style and adds modern touches such as cleaner lines, white walls and mixed neutrals. It is less rustic, more sophisticated and uses contemporary design elements like stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and sleek accent lighting.
Our color board for this style features engineered hardwood flooring in Walnut Natural from the Canyon Collection by REWARD. This is complemented with two MASLAND carpets, a solid cut pile from the Key West Collection in Deep Ochre and a more decorative pattern in Sandstone from the Florentine Collection. The final touch, is an area rug from STANTON, that looks like a hand-knit sweater.
ROMANTIC GIRL’S ROOM
Your little girl’s first bedroom should be a dreamy sanctuary where she feels like the princess that she is. Soft blush pink coupled with warm whites and greys create a storybook bedroom that feels tranquil, warm and welcoming.

In the bathroom MANNINGTON's Filagree Collection, color “IRON” and an area rug from STANTON’s Ticking Stripe Collection.
TRANSITIONAL interiors mesh modern and traditional elements for a comfortable interpretation of the classical style. In this color board, deep rich hardwood contrasts with bright white cabinets. Analogous colors from blue to green, sourced from nature, add a fresh pop of color to the look.

The MEDITERRANEAN STYLE interior is characterized by dark wood floors, stuccoed walls, wrought iron, and terra cotta among other romantic aesthetics of Southern European countries, MODERN MEDITERRANEAN updates this look by simplifying and decluttering the aesthetic, maintaining it’s grandness while adding modern comforts.

Both of these products are considered Luxury Vinyl SPC (Stone Polimer Core) which add a level of practicality to an old-world style. SHAW and STANTON are used to soften the look with area rugs and carpeted areas.
