The right floor rug can take a room from boring to brilliant. Always a good place to start when decorating, floor rugs can provide a focal point and an anchor for furniture in open planned rooms. They add warmth and soften hard floor surfaces.
Don't forget ecoco is offering a 10% discount on all orders across the entire range of Armadillo & Co floor rugs until the end of June. Come in and view our samples and learn more about the very special Armadillo & Co rugs by visiting, http://www.armadillo-co.com/
Earlier in the week we had a visit from our architect who thankfully had taken some photos of the interior rooms at 51 Balfour Street before we started major works. The photo above was a narrow bedroom which is above the driveway. We decided to open this room up into the main bedroom and make it into one luxurious space.
This photo is taken from the shower enclave. The other corner of this room has become a small laundry and storage space accessed from the hallway.
This is the main bathroom which had also housed the washing machine.
A little bit of a shuffle around, new tiles and fittings and here is the after shot.
A new chrome pipe under the bench and this room is complete.
Back downstairs in the shop, we plastered over an original window on the wall behind the counter, painted the walls with Murobond, Pentimento in Badger (light colour) and Murobond Pure with grain in Syrup, ripped up the carpet and painted the floor in Murobond, Olive Tree. We added new skirtings and architraves in keeping with the era of the building and added some shelving.
Meticulously crafted by hand, to the highest ethical standards, from natural and sustainable fibres including wool, jute, hemp and cotton......
are the beautiful Armadillo & Co rugs......
warming and softening floors around Australia....
and offered to you at special prices, in the month of June at ecoco.
Come in and view the samples.
We will have the stunning crimson and cream stripe rug arriving any day.
Once a teacher always a teacher!?! This photo tugs at my heart strings. I love selling Armadillo & Co rugs knowing that part of the sale price is going directly to schools in the weavers' villages. Maybe because of my previous life as a teacher? I feel strongly that all children have the right to an education and should not be exploited for cheap labour so that we in the west can buy cheap rugs and carpet. Ok, feel better now I have had my soapbox moment for the day! See you soon!
