Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

Of course you want your St. Louis home to be beautiful, comfortable and welcoming, but do you know how to achieve those results? For those who do not have a design education it can seem like an overwhelming task to decorate a room, but fortunately there are some great tips that can help you succeed. Take a look at some helpful ideas from House Beautiful to help you design your ideal home.

  • Create a seating area that encourages conversation. There’s nothing more awkward than an oddly-arranged seating area.
  • Include a coffee table that is both fun and functional. The coffee table is a great place to show off some interesting items or books, but remember to leave enough room that you and your guests can actually sit your beverage down!
  • It’s so important to make sure the flooring and wall color work together. A lighter colored tile, natural stone or luxury vinyl floor can work extremely well with a dark wall color, because the floor will reflect the light from above.

Parquet Flooring Makes a Comeback

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Events and Happenings

Remember parquet flooring? Parquet flooring uses arrangements of wood-block flooring to create geometric patterns and mosaics for decorative effect. The durable patterned wood flooring seen in pre-war housing–and NBA floors–is making a comeback in the residential market. Now, the old material is being re-imagined with new finishes and contemporary designs.

The return of wood-block parquetry along with other carpet and flooring trends debuted at the Surfaces 2011 trade show last week in Las Vegas. Those trends include the continuing popularity of all types of wood flooring, especially wide-plank wood flooring, eco-friendly flooring such as cork and bamboo, and ceramic tile flooring in large formats, bright colors, and wood patterns. Technologically advanced engineered wood flooring is enabling manufacturers to produce even more versatile and innovative flooring than before.
