Rosie Tells Us Why She Chose a Herringbone Engineered Wood Floor and Her Home Style

Combining a period palette with inspiration from her travels @roseontherow has created an elegant, eclectic look that can evolve over time.

Rosie, owner of the ever inspirational @Roseontherow Instagram account talks us through her sense of style and why our Cognac Engineered Herringbone floor was perfect for her home.

Although Rosie, lives in a period property she doesn't let herself get pigeon-holed into one particular style.

"I like to mix things up when deciding how I want to create or change a space and I really just go with what I like, which can usually become quite an eclectic mix!"

This is particularly prevalent through the odd pieces found throughout her home.

"My ideas also grow from what I see around me - the places I visit, both in the UK and abroad.
Hotels, restaurants, coffee shops etcetera...there's so much inspiration almost everywhere you look".

When it came to choosing a floor Rosie knew that she wanted a herringbone floor.
The only issue was deciding what colour to go for.

After ordering samples from Discount Flooring Depot and a few other companies, Rosie picked the Cognac from our Hampton Herringbone range of Engineered parquet wood floors.

"We wanted something low maintenance, so we opted for a lacquered floor rather than one that needs to be oiled regularly"

This style of engineered wood herringbone floor also suits the character of Rosie's period property wonderfully.



By removing the skirting boards before fitting the floor, it allowed the expansion gap to be covered when they are reattached. This also removed the need for any beading, creating a cleaner look.

"We absolutely LOVE our floor...we've had so many compliments on

it and it just finishes our living/dining room perfectly"
