This beautiful custom stair is a 100% wool Couristan. The traditional lattice design is perfect for a staircase.

This custom area rug is a Couristan wool flat weave. The modern red, beige and off-white stripes in this carpet mixes perfectly with the traditional green and white bedspread and plaid couch cover. The custom red serging on the area rug is the perfect touch.

Isn’t this stair runner stunning? This wool tiger print carpet is the PERFECT pattern for a staircase.The owner had a hallway runner custom made from the wool tiger print carpet when she lived out-of-state.  When she moved to Austin, she called Schroeder because she wanted to find the exact same carpet to make a stair runner. Schroeder was able to locate this fantastic carpet and make a custom stair runner for her.

South Austin Condo: Mid-century modern with a twist of color

Martini anyone? This beautiful condo in South Austin is a mid-century vision with a twist of color. We loved this condo so much, it’s featured in our ad for Austin Home magazine’s fall edition. With the help of our favorite photographer Trent Lee Photography, we were able to capture a beautiful home that features warm walnut hardwoods, custom area rugs, Hunter Douglas shades and a metal mosaic backsplash.

 

Master Bedroom 

The master bedroom features warm walnut hardwood floors. These gorgeous floors have a hint of carmel and honey and convey a sense of strength and comfort. The owners had a custom area rug made for the master bedroom. They chose a neutral colored basket weave that perfectly fits the room’s design aesthetic!

Living Room

The living room features the same warm walnut hardwood floors as the master bedroom. The owners chose to custom make an olive colored shag area rug. Custom area rugs may not be as expensive as you think. By choosing the perfect color and size, you are able to create the prefect space.

Kitchen

This is one of our all time favorites. Just look at how stunning this kitchen is! The hardwood floors are walnut and the custom cabinets are pecan. (Cabinets were not done by Schroeder.) But what really makes this kitchen is the metal mosaic back splash. The back splash gives the kitchen a sleek modern look. But the walnut and pecan warm the space giving it an inviting and appealing look. Below is a close-up of the back splash.

Outdoor Patio

Originally, the outdoor patio had cement floors. With the help of Schroeder, the owners chose 12×24 porcelain tile with a sisal like look and texture. The result was fantastic. This outdoor living space and patio is now the perfect space for entertaining friends while watching a football or baseball game – or even 4th of July fireworks! Martini anyone?

Laminate: You’ve come a long way baby!

Laminate, it’s not what it used to be. Today’s laminate has texture, low gloss and a variety of wood tones. It has the warmth of a regular hardwood but the durability of a laminate. Schroeder recently installed Mannington‘s laminate in a customer’s home.  Wood laminate can be ideal for some families who are extremely active and have a lot of pets that can sometimes cause marks on wood. Take a look and see how good these floors look:
