Each month I will be posting our favorite color schemes, design tips, and the perfect flooring to match!  Find a stunning look for every room in your house!  Keep an eye out for the bonus room at the end, which will change from month to month!

Here are May’s color tips:

This color combination is so calming!  After a long day, I could totally relax in a space like this!

First we have chic, then we have classic!  I love them both, how could you ever decide?

I love this beachy vibe!  A cute DIY message in a bottle would look great with these perfectly accented colors.  And check out those adorable throw pillows!

I chose a medium-toned hardwood for the bedroom.  It reminds me of wet sand, and the richness of this color will make the room feel vibrant.


Colors: Purple, white, and black

This soft violet is such a soothing color.  I like this shade for a shared or guest bathroom.  Everything about this room is clean and simple, yet chic!  (Oh, and that chandelier is stunning!)

This deep plum color is my personal favorite!  What a gorgeous, dramatic color for your master bathroom!

I love marble, so I’m slightly biased here!  This is called Carrara Matte.  I also really like the idea of keeping this room dark and dramatic, though.  So I’m a fan of this tile, on the right, as well.


Colors: Marble, white, and gold

I think I’m in love!  (No really, my heart may have skipped a beat when I first saw this kitchen).  Marble and white are so commonly paired with black, so I loved seeing this pretty pop of gold, instead!

Hello bamboo!  This natural color bamboo flooring would gorgeously compliment the gold!  I have been known to have bold taste, though, and this gold tile is beautiful!  Although, I think I’d choose this for my back splash instead of my floor!

Bonus Room: Dining Room

Colors: Coastal blue and deep purple

Wow!  I cannot say enough about these colors.  This is such a classy look for your formal dining room.

This, folks, is not wood.  It’s a porcelain tile!  I’m into either of these colors for the dining room, but I think I’m leaning toward the one on the left.  Which one do you like?

Any of my flooring recommendations can be purchased from CS4 Flooring in Madison, WI.
