Grey is the new black

If you keep up to date with the latest trends in Interior design, it won’t surprise you to find out that grey woods are the next big thing when it comes to decorating your home.

Minimalist interior design has always been a hit and grey is as modest as you like, working well with pastel colours or laid in herringbone pattern, grey woods are both versatile and sophisticated, whilst also fitting into the monochrome bracket which of course portrays luxury.

Grey woods have the ability to bring both a cooling & warming effect on an interior dependant on the furniture and the rest of the design scheme. As well as this, grey also holds its own as the focal point of a room, looking great with other colours but without dominating.

Here’s a look at just how great a grey wood vinyl from our new Secura collection could look in your home:

Getting creative with the new Camaro collection

It’s been a few months since we launched our brand new Camaro luxury vinyl tile collection and it looks like our flooring contractor followers on Twitter couldn’t wait to get their hands on our latest wood and stone effect designs!

Taking inspiration from the bold and beautiful floor designs in our Camaro brochure, these floor fitters have been trying out some creative layouts and showing off their impressive floor laying skills.

If you’re looking for a more unusual flooring design for your own home, why not try using two designs together instead of just one? Or choose an eye-catching pattern such as stripes, tramline effects, off-set keysquare designs or variations on the classic herringbone pattern.

The Cambridge Parquet and Georgian Parquet designs are proving extremely popular as the smaller planks mean that they are perfect for creating more complex design floors without needing to cut planks down to size.

Take a look at the stunning floors below and to find more flooring inspiration for the home visit our Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook pages.

Wild Amber Oak – From the NEW Camaro collection

Our new Camaro luxury vinyl tile range offers luxury and style whilst at the same time proving to be practical and durable. Recreate the look of one of our favourite shots from the brand new Camaro brochure featuring Wild Amber Oak.

Wild Amber Oak is a striking, warm wood design which we think works perfectly with the dramatic turquoise blue of this beautiful bedroom interior. We’ve found a couple of home accessories online which can help you recreate this design scheme for yourself.

Peacock & Gold

Teal Ceiling Lamp – NotOnTheHighStreet.com

To keep in line with the contrasting blue tones, this lamp delivers a vibrant teal flush combined with a golden or copper interior that mimics the amber tones in the floor itself. Coming in a variety of sizes, purchase now from Not on The High Street for £40.

Why not sit back and relax in this elegant yet casual chair made predominantly from natural materials. These are available for purchase from Ikea for £120.

Beautifully replicating the feathers of a peacock, these cushions are the perfect accompaniment for an interior scheme like this. This particular design is available for £20 at etsy.co.uk

Nothing completes a room more than a good vase. We think this particular one does the job and fits in with this blue scheme perfectly. An organic shape makes it perfect for tall flowers or purely as a decorative piece. The vase is also 100% recycled too making it an environmentally friendly choice. Pick this room accessory up for £20 from Habitat.

On-trend Concretes stand out in new Camaro collection

Concrete is often seen as a plain, industrial and not very appealing material and it is easy to see why. Predominantly used in building sites, often over large outdoor areas covered in dirt and muddy footprints – we wouldn’t blame you for thinking this way!

When it comes to interior design however, concrete is the latest big trend and can look stunning when used correctly. We are obviously not saying that you should give your local tradesman a call and ask him to fill up your living room with concrete! Instead, take a look at the three concrete designs that feature in our latest Camaro luxury vinyl tile collection. Smoked, Burnished and Organic Concrete are three brand new LVT designs that are guaranteed to look great in any interior design scheme.

Whether decorating your living room, bedroom or bathroom, rest assure that by choosing Camaro LVT you will be selecting a floor that is easy to clean, easy to install and comes with a 10 year guarantee.

Unlike real concrete, luxury vinyl tiles are warm and comfortable underfoot and help reduce impact sound. These designs look great when laid on their own, but have a look at what you can achieve when laying them side by side. Check out this example of our hexagon design combining all three shades for a truly magnificent result.

Feel free to tweet us any of your concrete designs and be sure to follow our Pinterest for more inspiration.

 

 

 

 

 

The Only Way is Parquet

Parquet flooring refers to the traditional design where small blocks of wood (or wood effect vinyl tiles) are laid in a geometric pattern to create a stunning, luxurious effect. The design dates back to the 1600s and is still as popular as ever. Instantly recognisable and often referred to as mosaic, parquet flooring is a perfect way to add an expensive feel to any room.

Real wooden parquet flooring requires a big budget and regular maintenance, but luckily, Polyflor at Home’s vinyl alternative require none of those things. Easy to clean, much cheaper than real hardwood and coming with a 10 year guarantee, the new Camaro range is the perfect solution for those that want the enticing design of parquet flooring without the extra cost.

  • Parquet is available in three designs; Woodblock, Parquet Herringbone and Parquet Tramline
