The holidays are upon us once again which means it’s time to get festive. Each year brings new opportunities to decorate and celebrate. This year, embrace creativity and draw inspiration from an unlikely source – your floors. Whether you are looking to revamp your holiday spread or add new baubles and style to your holiday collection, check out what your floors say about you!
Iconic in its simplicity and devotion to clean-lines, California Modern style epitomizes the mid-century aesthetic. Sleek and sophisticated The Steadfast Collection embodies the laid-back vibes of a California bungalow. Lovingly worn, its whitewashed hues and knotty lengths invite bare feet and easy living. If this sounds like your home, bring the outdoors in with greenery, glass and plenty of lights. Simplicity is key, so look to Scandinavian design and monochromatic palettes of winter white and sparkling silver to make a statement. Stick to neutral earth tones of grey, sea-blue, tan and grey and add neutral elements like soft garlands and plants for a beachy laid-back theme.
Step back in time with The Eighteen Seventy Five Collection. With weathered and wire brushed texture, this wide-plank veneer has all the character of traditional hardwood with modern engineering. Preserved natural grain and green-practices make this the perfect choice for an upcycling guru and vintage collector. If your home includes this style, make something old new again. Consider an aluminum or colored tree, with post-war blown glass ornaments and strings of tinsel. Silvery or gold trees are sure to make a statement. Expand your vision around the home with heritage linens, like embroidered tree-skirts, tablecloths and pillow covers. For holiday feasts, don’t forget the vintage punch bowl, milk glass and colorful tableware.
Classic and Traditional
For something that stands the test of time, we love The Saltbox Collection. Perfect for traditionalists, its weathered texture, random widths and subdued sheen echo its longevity and strength. If your style is as timeless as these floors, rely on the traditional favorites of red, green, gold and silver. Break out the popcorn chains, ribbons and heritage ornaments. Traditional style embodies warmth and steadfastness, so don’t be afraid to get cozy. Faux fur throws, tartan blankets and plenty of candles complete this style.
Glitz and Glam
Looking to kick it up a notch this season? Be sure to check out our limited-edition offerings, which showcases unique and small batch runs of exclusive designs like the Intuitive Collection. A wire-brushed, walnut veneer with gorgeous natural striations and sheen. With floors like this, showy decor is the way to go. Mix a variety of different finishes, like gold, champagne and mercury glass in everything from ornaments to the napkin rings. For a unique display try flocking your tree to make your baubles pop. Look for mixtures with glitter or mica for extra shine. Change out sofa cushions, tablescapes and garland to match and really make a statement.
Creative decorators will adore The Vintage Loft Collection. Reminiscent of an Artist’s studio, this grouping evokes the beauty found in the industrial buildings of previous generations. Its rustic charm is completed with a band saw marks, brushed grain, and hand-chiseled bevels. For a funky take on Christmas, try a new color scheme altogether. Embrace bright colors, and pompom ornaments, and play with patterns, and artfully mismatched pieces. Keep a theme of color, size, or shape but feel free to experiment. Channel your inner artist and break into your trove of craft supplies. Embrace the chaos and let go of perfection with eclectic ornaments and tongue-in-cheek style.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the season, remember to have fun! Break out of the ordinary and look to unlikely sources for inspiration. You might just surprise yourself.
