  • Tile Bathroom Flooring: Don't Forget to Treat Your Feet

    I'm not a fan of the cold weather. Even in the South, we've had some very cold temps - and by cold, I mean in the 20s.

    Earlier this year, Pantone announced its color of the year was Radiant Orchid. So, you may be wondering why gray is now part of the color scheme. Well, last year was dominated by very bold colors, but this year we've seen (according to many designers) a return to a more neutral palette, with Radiant Orchid being more of an accent color.
