Favorites from Flor

I’ve said it before, and now I am saying it again . . . I love Flor!  I never get bored with Flor because they keep issuing new patterns that can literally inspire entire rooms. One of my new favorites is “All Wrapped Up”, which is a pattern of varying stripes in several color palettes.

I also appreciate the wood grain texture of “Fois Bois” and can see how it could be both sophisticated (leave it to Martha) and just a little bit cheeky over a hard wood floor.

If its raining outside, who cares? You can practice your putt inside in the privacy of your own hallway with the “Putt Up or Shut Up” rug! This rug kit is perfect as a runner in a long narrow passage or attached to a larger rug in a kid’s playroom, which is what I did.

Flor is a very versatile and practical option to a traditional rug. It is easy to install and  fun to create a customized rug. For homes with mess-makers like small kids, pets or wine spillers, Flor is a great choice. Individual tiles can be picked up to be cleaned in the sink or can be replaced if stains can not be removed.  Affordable, washable, do-able and adorable — what’s not to love?
