Flooring advice from 5 of our favourite renovators, designers and stylists
Interior Designers and Decorators have always been the professionals at hand for us to draw advice, solutions and inspiration from. Even though this is still the case, the tides are shifting slightly as bloggers, websites and social media handles form an important role in shaping our aesthetic and where we get information. We’re lucky to work with many excellent Designers, Stylists and Writers, five of which are featured with their projects in the latest Flooring Xtra catalogue. Here we learn a little bit more about them:
Inside Four Lines (@insidefourlines) is a blog, Instagram account and the platform for one busy mum, Sally, to showcase her gorgeous family and excellent taste. A loyal following on social media are consistently on the lookout for what Sally is working on as it’s guaranteed to be a visual feast! In our latest catalogue, she spoke to us about her recent renovation where our gorgeous laminate flooring was installed throughout.
“When making the BIG decision to replace all existing flooring in our home, we were looking for something that would be aesthetically pleasing, whilst at the same time easy to clean and durable (in a home filled with three young boys!)” said Sally. She selected Eligna Wide in colour ‘Caribbean Oak Grey’ which ticked all the boxes and has definitely lived up to its expectation.
Interior Designer and media personality, James Treble recently chatted to serial renovators Andrew and Rachael from Lover Dreamer (@LoverDreamers) who are building their fourth home in four years, this time on the Central Coast of NSW. “In the bedrooms, you’re looking to have a carpet, tell us about the carpet you have chosen.” Asked James. “We’ve chosen Urban Instinct ‘Stockholm’ colour ‘Kalmar’ which is a lovely charcoal grey wool textured loop pile. With two young children, I sway more to darker coloured carpets! Wool carpet provides natural insulation and I love the texture underfoot that loop piles bring.” You can follow their renovations closely online.

In Canberra, Gina from online style guide Style Curator (@StyleCuratorAU) has also been busy utilising our products in one of her projects. A townhouse in the inner-south of Canberra had dated brown carpet, which was ripped up and replaced with Flooring Xtra Soul Elements Blackbutt engineered boards. A neutral palette was devised to allow for a modern family home. Whites and greys are punctuated with the warmth of timber notes throughout. “The new flooring made all the difference. It feels bigger and more modern while being easier to maintain with Bonnie’s (the client’s) beloved dog. It’s also set the Scandinavian style for the rest of the home.”
Last, but not least is Emma-rose Design (@emmarosedesign). We love it when Emma-rose uses Flooring Xtra products in her projects as her approach to home renovation and design always provides so much inspiration! The latest project for this busy Gold Coast based designer is a gorgeous new look for her own home where FastFIT Vinyl was installed throughout. “Value for money, affordable taking into consideration that it’s not our “forever home”, easy to install and wide colour range.”
Emma-rose is also taking part in a special Flooring Xtra collaboration, which includes a styling package, design advice and a $500 Flooring Xtra voucher.
