Red and White Home Decor

3The winter holidays and all the way into February are a great time to use red and white decor in your home. Red and white go great with the winter holiday season, and then the colors transfer well into February because of Valentine’s Day. Red and white will brighten up any room during the dark winter days. White is a clean and classic design color that will really pop when you add a bit of red into the room.
You can use red and white in any room in the house. There are no limits with how and where you can use these two colors together. If you want more of the color to show up in your home, then you can always get white or red carpet. You can pair many other colors with these colors of carpets, so don’t be afraid to be bold with your flooring. Here are a few pictures of how you can use red and white in different rooms throughout the house.

Winter Care Flooring Tips

snowWinter is a fun season when you’re outside making snowmen, sledding down a hill, or throwing snowballs at family and friends, but winter is never a fun time for the flooring in your home. During the winter, you track in a winter mix of snow, ice, salt, and mud indoors across your clean floors. If you do proper prevention and clean-up, then you can still enjoy winter without worrying that your flooring has been ruined.

 
Here are a few tips:

Carpet:

  • Place area mats at all entrances of the house to keep snow, ice, and mud at bay.
  • Make sure the mats have a rubber backing so the mud and moisture will not seep through the mat and into the carpet.
  • Vacuum daily
  • If you do get mud on the carpet, allow the mud to dry completely. After it has dried, shatter the mud with the handle of a knife, then vacuum as normal. Blot any dirt spots with a small amount of detergent solution (1/4 teaspoon detergent per 1 qt. of water) and a white paper towel to work the affected area. Continue applying detergent and blotting until the spot is removed. Rinse with tap water using a spray bottle and blot to remove excess moisture.

Hardwood:

  • Place area mats at the entrances of the house.
  • Vacuum or sweep your hardwood floors with a soft-bristle broom every day during winter to prevent scratches from salt. Make sure you do this step before you use any cleaning products on the hardwood flooring.
  • Wipe up spots immediately with a cleaner, and make sure the cleaning solution is applied directly to a white cloth. Wipe the area clean with a soft, slightly damp cloth.

Another great way to prevent floor damage during the winter months, is to purchase carpet and hardwood flooring that are easy to clean and durable. Mohawk has great carpets that are easy to clean, and these are called their SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets. SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets are beautiful, durable, and very easy to clean. In addition, SmartStrand carpets are created for active families. We also have some new cabin-grade hardwood floors from Mohawk that will work well in any home if you take care of them well.

Click here to see our selection of Mohawk SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets.

Overall, the best way to care for your floors this winter is to be proactive and stay on top of the issue.

Do you have any tips for household care during the winter season? Let us know!

Decorating With White Carpet

white carpetUsing the color white during the winter or for a large part of your home, may seem a little much, but white is a beautiful color. Many modern designers use white for the flooring or the walls of the home. The color white gives your home a clean look, and there are so many color pairings and design patterns you can use with this color.
If you don’t want to paint the walls white or use white flooring, then you can always use the color for the furniture and accent pieces. A lovely white couch will become a great spotlight for any room. The best thing about using the color white in your home, is that this color will work well in any season. 1V15-537
If you do decide to go with white carpet for your home, then I suggest using some white carpet from Mohawk’s SmartStrand Forever Clean collection. Cozy Comfort is a great soft carpet from Mohawk that has the SmartStrand Forever Clean, and this carpet comes in a lovely white color called ‘Billowing Cloud.’ With the SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets, you do not have to be afraid of having white carpet because this carpet cleans easily and is resistant to stains. Whether you have kids and/or pets, SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets allow you to have the color carpet you want without worrying.

Victorian Living Room Idea

vic 2
To create a Victorian living room you first need to pick a great flooring. I would suggest using our copper colored Black Forest solid hand-scarped hardwood flooring. The copper color and subtle hand-scraped details will go well with any other colors and textures used to design the living room. Also, you can match any color or design of area rug with this style of hardwood.

vic 4

After you’ve picked out the right flooring and possibly an area rug, then you can have fun picking out the furniture, wall decor, lighting fixtures, and accent pieces. The most important piece of furniture in a Victorian design is a tufted sofa. There are many new and old styled tufted sofas you could use, and the best part is they are now made in so many different colors. You could go for more curved tufted sofas or more boxed ones, but any of these styles of couches will work.
tufted sofa
The next design elements to worry about are the lighting and wall decor. Many Victorian styled rooms feature a chandelier of some sort, whether big or small, but if a chandelier is not your style, then you can go with a creative hanging lighting fixture. They make many unique lighting fixtures, so your design options are limitless. For wall decor, you can do almost anything you want, but you need to have a mirror. The mirror needs to be ornate, either a wood or metal frame, and it should be at least a nice medium size.

vic 3Once you’ve bought all of these design elements, then you can have fun painting the walls, buying accent pieces for the room, and picking the perfect artwork for the walls.
If you have any other Victorian design ideas, then we would love to hear them.
