Lumber Liquidators® Casa de Colour Select Pewter Ash Flooring

We were introduced to Lumber Liquidators'® Casa de Colour Select Pewter Ash Flooring this year at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show.

Fypon® Decorative Millwork

If you want a durable product that will last forever, consider adding a decorative touch to your space with Fypon's® Moulded Millwork. Fypon® constructs their moulded millwork from urethane foam created by mixing isocyanate and resin. The mixture is then kept under pressure in a mold as it expands to any desired shape resulting in a high density, thermoset material ideal for interior trim.

The polyurethane material resists rot, mildew, insects, warping and splintering because of it's high density composition. This closed cell structure means that the material is virtually maintenance free. Not to mention each piece is created with a consistent quality and finish making it beautiful as well as durable. Plus, the lightweight material gives you job site savings on time and labor.

Benjamin Moore® Design By What Matters

This year, Benjamin Moore® revealed their Design by What Matters tool. This new and interactive tool lets you pick the room you want to design and then asks you a series of lifestyle questions. In my test run I was asked to select my favorite group of furnishings, whether I was a cat or a dog person, explain how I liked to divide my time, and what my dream view was, among other things.

At the end of your questionnaire you are given a choice to upload a favorite, create a palette, or let the website surprise you. Once you get to your room it gives you design tips and lets you pin, share and email the room to your friends and family.

Using the website is very easy and fun and with endless combinations you are sure to find something that is uniquely you.

GE reveal® Light Bulbs

After building and decorating your new home you want to make sure that it is lit up beautifully. We discovered GE reveal® Light Bulbs last year and have come to love how beautiful and clean the light looks with these bulbs. Unlike an incandescent bulb, a GE reveal® bulbs emits light that will bring out colors and patterns in your home that might otherwise go unnoticed.

A regular incandescent bulb can emit a slightly green or yellow hue depending on its chemical composition but with GE reveal® there is no hue. Replacing a regular bulb with a GE reveal® bulb results in a cleaner, more vibrant looking space that will show off your beautiful décor the way it was meant to be. And with a variety of bulbs from general purpose to specialty, floodlight and decorative, you can be sure that there is a GE reveal® bulb to suit your needs.
