Inspiration: Blue and Cream

We love this space! We worked with interior designer Charlotte Carothers of Charlotte Carothers Interiors to provide this sumptuous and elegant sisal area rug for a house in central Austin. (Please see this earlier blog post to see more photos of the project.)

This photo, filled with elegant and rich hues of blue and cream, inspired us to look for more products in our showroom that evoke the feeling of calm beauty and rich design.

2) This Millikan carpet reminded us of the blue drapes in the main photo. The broadloom carpet, available at Schroeder, is a 100% nylon tufted, pinpoint saxony. It has a Lifetime Soil and Stain warranty from Stainmaster . This beautiful carpet is prefect for any home including ones with small children and pets! This pattern would be fun in a master bedroom, a living room or even a dining room.

3) The rich, dark hardwood by Provenza is an excellent addition to any room in your house. “It consists of wire brushed, hand distressed and scraped, in combination with an innovative technique of smoking and carbonizing to create this one-of-a-kind masterpiece for your home.” (a)

4) The Rosecore light blue woven wilton brings a little bling into your home.This flat weave is made of wool and polyester and comes 15 feet wide, which means it can be installed wall-to-wall or made into a custom area rug. The polyester weave gives the carpet a little bling and allows for the carpet to be easily cleaned and cared for.

5) This photo does not give justice to the rich look and feel of the New Franco Belge linen flat weave seen above in color netural. This elegant flat weave give off a pearl-lustre look that is just too beautiful. We recommend that it be made into a custom are rug for your house or office. Because of the delicate nature of linen, it does require special care.

Bold and colorful: New Missoni

The new Missoni sisal rugs are in and they are BOLD and COLORFUL! Missoni mixed two exciting elements: sisal and bold colors to create a wonderful accent to any room.

Sisal is natural fiber that comes from the agave plant. Many prefer sisal (and other natural fibers) because it is a sustainable and renewable resource. Natural fiber rugs such as sisal are extremely durable and can take years to show the usual wear and tear that other flooring options may show. Sisal can be installed wall-to-wall, made into an area rug or placed on the stairs. The natural fibers of sisal offer a rich organic texture that can not be replicated with synthetic materials.

As usual, Missoni chose warm color hues that can fit anyone’s palette. The warm orange, pink and red or the earthy green, purple and blue can bring character, warmth or style to any room. These colorful colors can be used as a fun accent on a staircase, a bold or soft statement in a room or a little light to hallway. Come in today and see how Schroeder can bring Missoni’s sisal rugs into your home!
