Put A Cork In It

I considered cork as an option for my kitchen when I was replacing the floor, and although I didn't select it, I still adore the idea of cork floors and would be thrilled to have one at some point. I love that cork is an eco-friendly product and that there's such a wide variety of styles to be found.

While I love the idea of cork floors, I looove the idea of cork walls. It adds such warmth to rooms, as evident in the photos below. It would be fabulous to have an entire cork wall in a studio where I could pin inspirational images 'til my heart's content.

And, of course, cork would be a very wise decision for dampening sound from a certain large dog who enjoys a good bark now and again (don't worry, Itchy, I am not naming names.)

I was just at a clients office tonight for a party - we put cork floors in their lobby. They look great! I think you have to get the right kind - make sure its stable. but its a great material!

I have to be honest I had only seen cork floors a couple times and really didn't like the way they looked. But these cork floors and walls completely changed my mind! Thank you for showing how beautiful they can be.
