Floors are the topic of conversation between me and Poor Tired Husband lately -- we have 80 year old 1 inch oak planks under the carpet here in Museville, which we plan on breathing new life back into after we recover from the exterior painting. A lot of sanding, elbow grease, stain and wax, and they should be beautiful -- but my heart really belongs to the wide, rustic planks like those shown below in Artist Michele Deiter's Dutch Warehouse home.
I love this living room. The primitive fur pelts strewn over the backs of formal chairs which cradle soft, oversized pillows. The sleek, curvy, feminine legs of the chairs sitting on the rough, rustic wide floor boards -- the overstuffed casual slip covered sofa laden with a plethora of rich textured pillows - framed by the luxe, dark curtains.
I could so very easily live here.
Ahhh those wide rustic floors below the industrial stainless refrigerator --my kind of heavenly combination. Now... if I could only find a way to make my skinny floor boards here somehow get fatter to look like these ... I can dream, right?
Ah well, as the old saying goes - if wishes were horses then dreamers would ride.
Happy weekend, all!
