    Embrace the Hygge for Light Wood Floors

    This Scandinavian philosophy has been trending for several years now, to the point that it’s quickly becoming a timeless classic. So why not adopt the look and expressions? The Danes use the word hygge to describe an intimate, warm and happy vibe. It’s the equivalent to Chinese feng shui or what we would call “cozy”. This style emphasizes pale, luminous, comforting shades. Do you have light wood flooring? Excellent, that’s the key element!

    Scandinavian combinations

    • Pale wood flooring: White Ash, Hard Maple or Hard Maple in Ivoor color. Muted colors Haze and Hush from the new Atmosphere Collection.
    • Wall colour: off-white, cream, and ivory.
    • For a touch of fun: a pastel colour such as pink mint or almond green.

    Victorian Charm for Medium Wood Floors

    À une nuance près, nous nous sommes tous posé un jour cette question : et si je repeignais mon salon en bleu indigo ? Vous en avez souvent rêvé, mais vous n'avez jamais franchi le pas de peur de vous lasser. Certes, le doute est justifié. Mais si vous avez un plancher de bois doré, vous risquez de passer à côté d'un merveilleux mariage, digne de celui de la reine Victoria. Quel est le lien ? Réponse : le style victorien avec ses couleurs riches et contrastantes ! L'idée est, bien entendu, d'adapter ce style au goût du jour, en évitant de surcharger notre décor. Pour essayer, placez un fragment de papier de couleur vive, comme vert sapin, pourpre ou jaune miel, à côté de votre plancher de bois doré. Vous aimez ?
