Parquetry flooring is on trend and making an impact on interior design in 2019! In synch with the latest design trends, it is making an impression with the latest colour trend of ‘greige’ – a combination neutral colour that blends light to medium brown and grey.
Greige is the flooring colour sensation
Regarded by designers as a colour sensation, greige is perfect for the muted palette of today’s interiors. Up to the minute, this colour flooring sets the tone and stays trendy, with a unique personality that can highlight contrasts of colour in soft furnishings or feature walls.
While dark wood floors remain timeless and can be a great choice for a large room, the freshness of a lighter floor can make a room appear larger. It’s the answer when you need to add expanse to a small space.
And the upside is that the lighter shades of greige don’t show the dirt as obviously as darker colours.
Here’s a few ideas to consider to lighten your flooring choice and set the style that will be on trend for 2019 and beyond.
Greige wood – the chic choice
The contemporary look can be the perfect neutral background for a colour theme you can change up with every season. Warm up the contrasts in winter and keep them to cool greens and blues in the warmer months for a flooring that is timeless. Effective in herringbone or chevron designs, it fits right in with modern interiors.
Honey wood – warm and classic
With natural golden hues, honey wood tones are natural in hardwood from Australian Blackbutt or spotted gum and are a popular choice for today’s interiors. The warm tones and interesting grains make honey wood a versatile timber for any finish.
Whitewash – the relaxed look
The beachy look can be ideal for waterfront residences or beach houses near the water. It fits right in with a casual kitchen or relaxed family room, and the fresh tones are perfect for a family home. If your floor is already dark wood, a whitewash finishing can give it a lift and modernise a room, giving it a clean palette for pops of decorator colour.
Distressed wood – personality and character
Choosing distressed wood for your floor can be a trend setter if you are ready to be different! Ideal for holiday homes and water side settings, distressed wood flooring is a trend that appeals to those who choose to be different. Talk it through with a designer to ensure it fits with other design features in the home before choosing this option.
