We've Got Floors!

As most of you know we came home from vacation to a flooded home. We had about $17,000 worth of water damage. We had to move out while the repairs were being made. We had carpet in our living room/dining room and in our daughter's bedroom but decided due to this flooding we would go ahead and upgrade to hardwood floors. The floors were installed last week and have to say, "I Love Them." They are by Shaw called Vicksburg and the color is called Harvest. They are actually handscraped by prisoners so each plank is an original!

We hope to get moved back in this weekend. Now I better start designing some custom rugs for the LR & DR!

Wall color is SW Kilm Beige (lighter than I originally had but since the room is small & we were going with dark flooring we decided to go with lighter walls. The window insets are SW Fireweed.

I have a project I've been working on while away from my home, I'll show you hopefully by the end of the week.

OOOOoooo your dark floors look FABULOUS!!! I LOVE them!! The paint color looks perfect with the dark flooring. I bet you will be so glad to get moved back in!

Well, the floors look stunning! I love the Fireweed color. I am familiar with it because I was the design committee for our church building project and we used that color for inset walls much the same way you did. Looks wonderful. If you have a terrible thing happen like this, you may as well do some great upgrades. Great choices.
Blessings and keep us posted.

I am sorry to hear about the flooding! I have to say, though, the "silver lining" is a good one!! The floors are gorgeous.

Your floors look great. I know it is hard to not have your house in order, but it will be worth it. We just replaced our floors.
