Black and White Fun

Black and white can be fun! In a recent project by Butter Lutz Interiors, Milliken’s Stitches was used to create a beautiful palette that helped set the tone for the whole room. The carpet, purchased through Schroeder, is a low pile Stainmaster nylon. This carpet is great for high traffic areas and is easily cleanable.

Milliken has some wonderful and fun designs. The company layers patterns upon patterns to create imaginative designs. The muted colors create perfect palettes for your home or office. Explore Milliken’s designs here.

Stair runner: is it right for you?

Many people who have hardwood floors with staircases at some point ask, do I need a stair runner?

For some, a stair runner is a solution to a practical problem. Many customers call to say they have a child that is starting to walk and they are worried they may fall on (or even down) the stairs. Others are concerned about slipping on the wood while going down the stairs or the noise caused by shoes when going up and down stairs.  For all of these concerns, a stair runner is a great solution. Yes, a stair runner is a great way to muffle the sounds and soften wood stairs.

For others, a stair runner is a solution to an aesthetic problem. Some people, just don’t like bare stairs. A stair runners only purpose can be that it warms up the space. Plain wood stairs can be cold and stark. A stair runner can be like eye candy in a living room, a focal point in a hallway and an attention-getter in the foyer.

Stair runners can be practical, fun, whimsical, sophisticated, brazen and beautiful. Schroeder makes custom stair runners. You want wool or nylon? Pink or blue? Flowers or stripes? We have it all AND anything is possible. Take a look at some of the past stair runners we have done for our wonderful clients. Each of these were custom made for the client and installed by our professional team. Enjoy!

Famous Designer Series: Madeleine Castaing

We were recently introduced to the work of Madeleine Castaing, a French antique dealer and interior designer. Her designs were original and whimsical and many say she revolutionized the world of decoration and design.

“She used colors and patterns that make you wince when you hear them in the same sentence,” […] “But when you see this house in person, you realize how perfect her taste was.”

BOLD carpet and ECLECTIC wallpaper

As you can see from these photos, Castaing really did like to mix and match prints in a space. The carpet in these photos are large and bold prints on a white background.  We think that Stark’s Ellipse in black and white is the prefect compliment to Castaing’s carpet. Stark’s bold Ellipse design is both modern and contemporary and would do well in a variety of settings.

These Cole & Son palm wallpaper styles look similar to the wallpaper Castaing has on the walls of the room below. Both of these palm wallpapers have different hues of greens and provide a vibrant and eclectic pattern to a room.

These two rooms below scream contradiction but also scream STYLE. We think that Helio’s Leopard nylon carpet is the perfect match to the one in this photo. Let’s get real – everyone needs a little leopard in their life anyways. So why not as your carpet? Oh, you want more? What about this beautiful wool leopard print from Langhorne? Langhorne’s high quality wool broadloom carpet will make any room (and customer) happy. The colors in this leopard pattern are neutral hues that really can be a backdrop to any style of room.
