We've got floors

So excited to show you some pictures of our new floors.  We had our Marmoleum (color Eiger) installed on Friday.  We went through Paulson's and had a really good experience.  Even found a  $100 off coupon on their website that I was able to use!

We had metal wrapped on the stair edges to keep with the vintage look, keep them slip resistant and make them more hardy-they are basement stairs after all.

I just love the feel of it under my feet.  All natural.  Non-plastic.  Warm(probably because of our radiant floor heat).  And being that it is an all natural product, their were no harsh fumes on install day!

Now to find a good kitchen wall color....looking for a grey beige color-any good ones you know of?  We tried a sample called Hazelnut Cream from Home Depot but aren't totally sold.  I may go into benjamin moore armed with floor and cabinet paint swatches and ask for their help.

We did decide on an attic stairwell color per my sister and Sharon @ Laurelhurst Craftsman's suggestion-White Hyacinth by Sherwin Williams.  It is a really pretty creamy, slightly yellow, slightly peachy color.  I think it will really help brighten the staircase.

  1. When I went into Miller paint over the summer, they had a big tri-fold brochure of historic colors. Surely, that would have something acceptable for your kitchen. And it would at least serve to reduce the nearly-infinite number of choices you currently have. =)
