  • Shabby Chic Wood Flooring

    Shabby chic as an interiors term was first aired by The World of Interiors Magazine in the 1980s.

  • Why Grey Is The New Black In Wood Flooring

    Not so very long ago if you wanted a wood floor, it had to be wood coloured. Wood coloured might have been light, dark or mid, but either way it was definitely going to be a shade of brown.
