Schroeder Goes Robotic!

Take a look at the green faux-grass rug that Schroeder Carpet made for the The Association of Artificial Intelligence (AAI). The AAI hosted its annual conference this week in downtown Austin. The group was in need of a large turf-like area rug so that the robots could play soccer and perform other robot activities. Check it out on KXAN’s news clip:

 

 

2015 Color of the Year: Marsala

Pantone has announced 2015’s color of the year: Marsala. “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls. The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors,” says Pantone.

Whether you decide to drape your home in the new color of the year or just add a touch a new color, here are our suggestions on how to coordinate and complement MARSALA!

 

Cole & Son’s Woods Wallpaper:  The black and white trees are a neutral design that looks great with any color especially the earthy marsala. Add marsala colored pillows, throw or duvet to this room scene.
