1. Ten finishes that will DATE your new build: part 1

This video went viral in the summer of 2022. Then when I re-posted it again in January 2023 it went viral again. 

Here’s the thing… installing a grey or taupe flooring TODAY is going to date your home. And unfortunately, it’s the most mainstream floor finish found in most big box stores – so it’s easy to accidentally make this choice.

But, if you are making floor choices for your new build or renovation right now, this video will help guide you to more timeless floor colours.

    I’m happy to go to instagram to view videos, even though i don’t have an instagram account. Are they supposed to be viewable on the website, too? I don’t see anything at all except for “click here to view on instagram.” Just FYI. Happy New Year, everyone!
