While in Vegas on Modenus Blogtour last month, Joann and I spent a special evening touring The New American Home sponsored in part by Mohawk Industries. The New American Home is built to showcase the latest cutting-edge building technology, products and materials available in new home construction.
This was one of those homes where I had to just stand in one spot and silently take it all in. Sigh….. if only……
Every room (literally) opened to the outdoors. You could step out onto this courtyard from the family room and kitchen. Complete with large screen tv, fire pit, comfortable seating and mini pools – it was so peaceful.
The flooring throughout was exquisite – a mix of Mohawk and Karastan rugs with Walker Zanger tile. I think people forget that they can very easily have a rug bound to a very specific size in a carpet pattern that they love. So many times we walk into clients homes and the area rug is way too small. Take a clue from these photos and customize your rugs!
The layering of textures and colors was gorgeous in this contemporary home on a hill overlooking the lights of Las Vegas.
The team at Mohawk did an amazing job illustrating the technology behind Karastan SmartStrand Forever Clean advanced carpet fibers. A SmartStrand carpet sample was submerged in a massive glass of red wine, pulled out and blotted with a white towel. The entire room of design bloggers gasped at how easily the red wine damage was removed.
