As you know (warning: I'll be mentioning this here and there all month long - I'm that excited to share this with you!), Cassity from Remodelaholic and I teamed up to create a coastal cottage room designed around the beautiful Shaw Floors' handscraped maple (Style: Rockbridge/Color: Dusk) and Ikat Panel (multi) area rug. It was a dream come true experience to design a room around this flooring.
I still smile every time I see this room.
I'd love for our family room to look like this and I had so much fun designing it.
Every detail, flooring, rug, paint color and accessories are comfortable and I feel right at home.
When decorating a room, do what you love...

As camera shy as I am (deer in the headlights syndrome!), I wanted to share our experience with the Shaw Floors HGTV Home Design Challenge. Please don't laugh at me too hard! Cassity is a natural. Me, not so much.
Here are the videos that show our interview with Lisa LaPorta (HGTV's Designed to Sell), describing our room:
