The Bluestone #1302

It’s no secret that the kitchen is the heart of a home — more than just a space for cooking, it’s the place where family and friends congregate, projects are finished and meals are shared.

Of course the kitchen needs floors that can stand up to the kind of ongoing use that the kitchen requires. How do you know which kitchen flooring options make the most sense for your kitchen? What is the best kitchen flooring for you?

Design Trend: Farmhouse Chic

Farmhouse design makes its way indoors!

Reclaimed wood, aged metals, and distressed details are showing up everywhere in interior design. Farmhouse Chic decor has a soft elegance with a rustic edge – perfect for dressing up a small cottage or a Craftsman Bungalow.

Sliding barn doors are a great way to save space, and typically work anywhere you might use a pocket door. You can find a brand new, ready-to-install barn door, or get crafty and salvage one. A salvaged door can be refinished or simply cleaned up for a distressed look, and mounted with new hardware, like wall-mount kits from Johnson Hardware.

The aim is to bring feelings of calm and tranquility and I think most homeowners would love to introduce those sentiments throughout their home. Simple  pieces or an accent wall can have a big impact. Today we will take a look at ways to incorporate Rose Quartz pink and Serenity blue into your home decor for 2016.
