Living Room Reveal - New Floors

           The new floors are in and this room is finally put back together.

  If you have followed along then you know I took forever to make a decision on the new floors.  It was time to bite the bullet and make a choice, my poor carpets were more than DONE. 
                   
THE NEW FLOORS ARE GORGEOUS.

I think I made the right choice, these look amazing and they feel so good underfoot.  My contractor said this was one of the easiest floors he had ever installed.  Everything fit so well together - just click and done.


  They were able to do the entire installation in just 2 days from start to finish in both rooms, including removing tile and new baseboards.  I love the handscraped texture and the beautiful wood grain.


 Such a difference from the old carpet.  I loved the light color of the carpet, but not how dirty it always was.

The floors are wonderful and they feel so cool underfoot too.  Of course I had to have a cowhide rug.  I absolutely love this one.



The light cream color with the touch of tan and gray, plus that one little camel spot made this rug perfect for my room.  Best of all it gives the room character and still shows off the pretty floors.


This is a totally new look for me, but I am really liking it.


Everything stayed the same as it was before the new floors.  I just put it all back the way it was, well except for a couple of accessory changes.  The chest in the front window got a new treasure.


I added this fabulous box I found to the vignette.  Love the beige ostrich and the white trim.

I also added my "thinker" to the end table by the sofa and removed the yellow tulips.  

That's it, everything else stayed the same, except I changed the angle of the cowhide rug.  

Much better.


I am still looking for a rug for the dining area, but love the cowhide. 
So, what do you think?   There's a huge difference with the new floors don't you think?  Be sure to check back next week, I can't wait to show you the family room.

  13. Marty, LOVE the floors! Have you thought of turning the rug horizontal to the couch instead of perpendicular?

    1. You are right, I need to turn the angle a little. I have twisted that rug all over the place, but a little more horizontal would be better.

  34. Love the clean, crisp look of the wooden floors. I have gone from carpet to tile in the home I moved into a year ago...but I love being able to add different area rugs...a small leopard print really set my yellow couches out...better than carpet. Tile and wood floors are so much cleaner...know you will enjoy!!! (New to this Blog..Donna from California)

  38. it looks fabulous, Marty!

    Now that your floors are dark will you maybe will find yourself possibly painting end tables and coffee tables in ivory light paint? That's what I did when I first made the change.

    I adore your choice of wood - and glad you collaberated with the company - hopefully saved a ton, cuz it is so danged expensive to get flooring.

    I just ordered our new carpet for upstairs and cannot wait to get it replaced, comes a time there is no Stanley Steam cleaning in the world that can bring back its fresh newness, it's been past time to do replace for us.

  39. Wow! What a huge difference. I bet the rooms look larger too. I would love to do this. We have tile all over. only carpet in the bedrooms. It would just be such a daunting task. I so admire you. You just never let anything intimidate you!

  43. Swoon. Love the floors. We are getting ready to do a kitchen/family room update and it will require new floors. They are currently tile but now that there are so many beautiful engineered wood floors that will hold up to Florida humidity, I seriously considering them. Yours is lovely and has left me inspired. Thanks for sharing.
