Inspiration: African Safari

We are ready for safari here at Schroeder! Africa provides some wonderful inspiration for designers. These are some of our favorite products that make us dream of an African safari.



1) This exotic wallpaper reminds us of a sultry jungle somewhere in Africa. We love the dark background with the bright green and blue palm fronds. Sometimes the unexpected can be the best solution to a room! This wallpaper is Cole & Son’s Palm Jungle.

2) This stunning hardwood floor is DuChateau’s Zimbabwe engineered wood. It is has a natural oiled and a wire brush finish. It has an exotic look that could be perfect for a modern or contemporary room.  (See a photo below of an installation.)

3) This neutral but fun nylon carpet is Helios’ Cheetah print. The neutral colors allow it to go with any room. Nylon is great material because it’s easy to take care of and performances well in high traffic areas. (See a photo below of an installation.)

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.




This cute little doggy was so cute, we had to get a photo of her!

Inspiration: Tan and Wood

We love this photo of our client’s entry way. The gorgeous hardwood floors have a rich and deep tone that is common with natural oil hardwood floors. We also really like the wall covering that is an enlarged drawing of mimosa. It’s an unexpected surprise that’s modern and delicate. And finally the custom area rug with a modern geometric design pulls together the rich hardwood floors and delicate wallpaper.

For this photo we were inspired by other beautiful products that can be found in our showroom:



1) Client’s entry way: The wallpaper is Cole & Son’s Mimosa and the foliage is in yellow and silver/grey. The beautiful hardwood floors is Navarre’s oil hardwood floors and the custom area rug is Silver Creek with a geometric design.)

2) Cole & Son’s Palm wallpaper is a great looking design. The palm trees are reminiscent of 1950’s design, Frank Sinatra and Palm Springs. Cole & Son has a number of color variations for this design and they are FUN!

3) Stark’s Brix pattern seen here in white/natural is a wonderful geometric pattern. Made of 100% wool, this carpet can be made into a custom area rug or installed wall-to-wall. It comes in two additional colors.

4) Castle Combe’s Chippenham is a great example of high-quality natural oil hardwood floors. Chippenham has the look and feel of reclaimed wood. It features a combination of hand carved fissures, wire brushed surface, handscraping and staining.
