Makin' it with Flor

I just placed my first 'real' order with Flor. I've been looking for a long runner rug that would fit across the entire 'work' area in the kitchen and would coordinate with all my recent additions of blue into the kitchen. It dawned on me: If you want to match "Martha Blue" then you need to look at some other "Martha blue" options!

When MSLO first introduced the Flor designs, I had ordered carpet samples. I found the box of samples and checked the color compatibility with the Martha blue kitchen items from the Macy's line. VOILA! Success! The Flor designs are a lighter shade of the same blue!

After some careful measuring to make sure I wasn't buying too much, I placed my order. I had the above picture as my inspiration. I'm using the velvet and the corrugated design, alternating the two textures. I think it will look great!

One of the great things about Flor: They recycle! Should I choose to change out my tiles for a different color I can send my tiles back to Flor and they will recycle them into new product. Now that's what I call a 'green' supplier! I can't wait until they arrive!

Kenn, you will have to post a picture of the work area once you get the rug in. I can't wait for my FLOR catalog to arrive!

Glad that the color and size worked for you Kenn - can't wait to see a picture of the "real thing". Should be a "good thing" for your kitchen!
