Saturday share

I'm starting the design process for my new kitchen. Floors weren't particularly on my radar but they are now. Looks like the old ones will have to come up and new ones laid. I have a thing for white boards. Not necessarily white painted floors. I'm talking white stained, limed, light timber floors. The search has begun. I'm trawling the web. But then what do I find? A great post on Australian interior designer Shareen Joel's design hub Share Design. (It's a great online source of inspiration as well as naming the names and giving the links for product.) Tips & Trends: Beautiful Timber Flooring. Bingo! I've always loved Shareen's floors in her Sorrento beach home. Gorgeous aren't they? Hmmmm .... thinking the same for my kitchen would be fabulous with my white painted brick walls. I'm madly clicking links and finding new suppliers ... and importantly for me Australian links. OK now I'm off to find more posts on Share Design that will cut down my search time like one on floor stains and washes. Thanks Shareen for doing all the hard work. Now that's what I call a Saturday share!

I have been a fan of Shareen's work for years. She has got impecible style. I love it when there are links to products used in a shoot. It's very generous of the designer and so helpful to the general viewer. x KL

A saturday share indeed. Just in the nick of time too - I've been tearing out my hair trying to find a product that will protect my floors but not make an appearance on them. I think I may just have found the answer. Design Share looks like a great resource too, and its in Australia!. So thank you.

You should have a look at maple if you like naturally light coloured wood floors. Starts out really light and then over time turns a light warm honey. We have them everywhere on our ground floor and they have really added much needed light to our dark English home.

Gosh, this is timely for me also! We are interviewing companies and installers right now and trying to decide on a hardwood for our entire first floor, which is currently under major renovations. We are leaning heavily toward a white or grey stained oak. Those are GREAT links, thanks!
