On Day 3 Charlie and my friend pulled up the remaining wall-to-wall carpet and tack strips in the living room.
The original plan was to clean, wax, and buff the entire floor then to lay an area rug. Unfortunately the room resident had her heart set on wall-to-wall carpet. (I write that with a scowl on my face.)
Instead, on Day 4, my friend and I along with the room’s resident met with a representative from Empire Today who presented us with wall-to-wall carpet selections. The first choice mentioned by the resident was “mauve” which apparently is no longer in anyone’s color palette.
After choosing the color “Oyster” from the “Making Waves” collection we asked for installation the next day. The carpet was laid wall-to-wall in the living room, up the stairs to the second floor, and in the second floor hall.
When my friend and I arrived late in the day the carpet was finished and gave the room a calming look in contrast to the original variegated, sculpted carpet.
Stay tuned for Day 6 and the Finale.
Do you decorate with your favorite color?
