Flooring and Fireworks

Ah, June. The sun is shining, the birds chirping, and the kids are home from school. Yes, finally June, a month which, for many people, marks the beginning of a long and relaxing summer. T-shirts transition to tank-tops, pants are replaced by shorts, and sneakers are kicked off for the comfort of open-toe sandals. I could go on and on about all the wonderful aspects that come with the month of June, but perhaps one aspect trumps all. June, when July is right around the corner!

July is a special month, because we are fortunate enough to celebrate our beautiful country’s hard fought independence. We at Flooring America celebrate those who fight for our freedom every day by teaming up with Pets for Patriots. Dedicated to bringing pets and service men together in a lifelong bond of mutual friendship, Pets for Patriots thrives on supporting current military as well as veterans. If you know any member of the military community who is looking to adopt an adult dog or pet, visit http://petsforpatriots.org for more information.

Is there truly a better day in the calendar year than the 4th of July? Sure, you may be thinking Christmas or even Thanksgiving, and I agree that days such as these are very special for a plethora of reasons. However, holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving are accompanied by one fault; they come at the end of the month! Think about it. You are forced to wait essentially a full month in anticipation of opening Christmas Presents or scarfing down a giant Thanksgiving Turkey. I have good news for you people, you only have to wait four days to watch the sky be filled with fireworks in July!

Less than a week into the month of July the celebration begins, and celebrate you will. Similar to most holidays, the 4th of July is a time to gather with friends and family so that we may celebrate what makes our country so special. Here at Flooring America, we know that celebrations, as much as we enjoy them, are always messy.

Bringing Ombré Into Your Home

Finding its way into home décor is ombre, the design style often referred to as “shading.” Ombre refers to a centuries old technique of dyeing or weaving fabrics, which creates a gentle progression from light to dark, and can have a dramatic or soothing effect on your interiors.

Ombré, which is highly popular in both fashion and beauty, has a pleasing effect on the eye, and gives your space a fresh, modern look. The great feature of bringing ombré into your home is that it can be used in almost any manner. For those wanting to go bold, bringing ombré to your walls truly gives your room personality and tells a story. If you prefer to use the design with the use of accessories, consider drapes, pillows and artwork.

Since ombré consists of various hues of a color, most often including white, many flooring options work great with the style. If you are looking to bring ombré to your walls, consider the colors that will be used in your design, and then come visit us at Floors Direct to decide on which type and color of flooring will work best with your interior.
