wishful wednesday {taking the flor plunge}

One thing this Lazy Lady does best is fantasize about the future.  I'm not very good at living "in the now," I'm always thinking about the next recipe we should make, or couch we should buy, or city we'll live in, or job I could have, and where we'll be in 1, 3, 5, or 15 years.  It's not really the healthy way to live, buuuut sometimes I come up with some really great futures, and every once and a while those futures come true. . .

So, did you notice the floor in my post about that awesome sleeping bag?

We got ourselves a flor floor!!

We finally made some decisions about what colors we wanted (we are seriously terrible decision makers).  It took 3 trips to the flor showroom and lots of hemming and hawing, but we did it!!  Their "Customize your FLOR" tool is a great help to figure out patterns, but to see the real colors you need a sample.  When you go to the showrooms they have mini tile samples that you can take home (you can either buy them or pinky-swear to bring them back:)).  It really helps to see the true colors in your house.

In the end we chose "Toy Poodle," it's a low pile (since we're messy eaters), and we went with a bit of a safe palette with mostly grays and a deep blue thrown in for good measure (cloud, fog, overcast, and lagoon).  So for we haven't stuck the tiles down yet, we're still deciding on the layout
Here's the before. No rug, super plain, icky couch.
First The Man wanted to try it so the rug went a little under the entertainment center and a little under the couch.... It was bad.  It was just a weird stripe that just chunked up the room.

Then we tried it the normal way, which is very nice.
Then we tried it the wonky way!  For now we've kept it like this, we like it, but again, we're terrible decision makers!

What do you think, did we make a good choice? How would you lay it out?

  1. Ok I'm gonna say it.. I like the "normal" look - your layout is interesting enough (a non-pattern pattern - very cool) and it enhances the unique subtle shape of Andrews cabinet and, I assume, the coffee table to come. The "wonky" look makes the carpet the focal point of the room and perhaps it's a little too too - if you ask me... which you did... so there.
