Want a glimmer of what’s in store for 2018? Our color, style and design team agrees: everyone will be head over heels for the warm, rich allure of Gold Rush.
What’s gold is new again. Celebrate your home with Gold Rush, a warm neutral that reinvigorates and reinvites. Incorporate into your palette to effortlessly introduce visual warmth, and layer with natural textures such as wood, leather and metals for a look that reflects and accentuates individual style – from relaxed and natural to luxurious and glamorous.
“Golden hues evoke positivity, excitement and sophistication,” said Debbie Houston, Shaw Floors creative director. “With Gold Rush, styling options are diverse, so color can easily be the focal point or used to accentuate the overall design.”
Flooring can create a dramatic difference in your room.
Unlike furniture and décor, flooring trends shift and evolve slowly, making it possible to select a style that stays fresh for years. Here’s a current list of time-tested trends that have captured the attention of flooring and design experts.
Delustered flooring—meaning no glossy finishes—creates a dry, European look. Choose hardwood with a raw, hand-hewn appearance and carpet with a woolen, cottony finish. These styles shine without any added luster.
The trend is moving away from exotic looks to a feeling that’s more familiar. The classic nature of these traditional domestic grains has another benefit; knowing exactly where the wood is sourced ensures environmental responsibility as well as quality.
Play With Patterns
This is no passing fad. Patterned carpet can create layers of texture that add plenty of visual interest to any space. Choose a classic pattern to accent your style without overwhelming it.
When picking your planks for hardwood looks, go for wide and long. These bigger pieces add just the right amount of modern for a clean look that’s still traditional.
Not all floors are truly bespoke, or made-to-order, but trends are leaning toward floors that are made-to-last. Choose a high-quality floor with unique details for a look that will be in style for a long time.
