The first day of the trip, each of us 10 bloggers was paired up with a partner for the remainder of the trip, who we would be designing a room with. Katy of Charles and Hudson and I were teamed up! I couldn't have asked for a better partner. The whole event was a challenge, and we were actually competing against the other teams, so we were super motivated to do our best. (Stay tuned for details on the prizes: there's something in it for you!)
We got a chance to look at the exact kiosks for HGTV Home/Shaw Flooring that you see in stores. We had to choose our flooring the first night so that it could be delivered and installed to the showroom overnight. The lines include every different type of carpet pile, texture, color, or style you could wish for! I thought I'd be overwhelmed with the decision-making process, but there weren't too many or too few options to choose from. Katy and I quickly discovered we both loved gray, so we moved on from there until we found a gray carpet we loved!
