Color Corner: Oak Cleveland
Hey guys, today we’re going to talk about the oak Cleveland in the Downtown Series from the Urban Lifestyle Collection! The Cleveland is a beautiful grey-toned brown floor, perfect for any home setting or any design space. At 4 3/4 inches wide, this oak floor hits the sweet spot between classic and traditional while remaining modern and contemporary with its grey washed look. We were recently invited into a gorgeous home in the city of Irvine, California to view and photograph their installation of the oak Cleveland.
Tommy, his wife Sarah and their three kids were kind enough to let us in their Orange County home to enjoy their floors for a bit. Sarah said the Cleveland was the perfect mix of brown and grey for the aesthetic they were trying to achieve in their home. After two years of use, the floor still looks just as good as the day they laid it down. Because of the wire brushed texture found in the Cleveland, along with three kids of their own and the 10 others that were in attendance outside for a pool party, the characteristics in each plank only enhance in time with proper care.
As you can see here, they’ve used a pop of blue here and there as contract color to balance out the brown in the floor to receive a more grey effect. That’s some high level color theory and interior design going on! Impressive! We’re so grateful for those who open their homes to us to check out and photograph. We can’t thank you enough, Tommy and Sarah for sharing your decorating story with us!
