A Flake Revival to Make History
Our homes are an incredibly important part of our lives.
We raise our families in them, invite our friends over for gossip sessions and parties, give homes to our furry friends – the list goes on!
A home portrays who we are, from our very own character, down to our beliefs and passions. It is a space where we create memories, build relationships and constantly redesign ourselves; the décor we choose is a huge part of the space we share with so many others.
Throughout history we can easily see the importance of décor throughout our homelives:
Ancient India saw a rise of an elaborate style; ‘Rangoli’, whereby an array of colourful sands are mixed with rice and flower petals and strewn across the floor, leaving a beautiful multicoloured dappling effect on the flooring beneath.
Ancient Greece paved the way with intricate Mosaics, creating resplendent features across the floors of the wealthy and ruling class.
No matter where in the world we may find ourselves, we are constantly surrounded by different designs and themes, and more often than not, our floors have been an integral part of our creations.
Renowned English feminist author Mary Haweis once wrote:
‘One of my strongest convictions, and one of the first canons of good taste, is that our houses, like the fish’s shell and the bird’s nest, ought to represent our individual taste and habits.’
Hereby opening the doors for a new generation of decoration; turning the current model of interior décor on its head and pushing manufacturers and craftsmen to create higher quality more affordable items for the general public to furnish their homes with.
When it comes to decorating your home, it is incredibly easy to overlook your floors. To simply cover them with rugs rather than putting any effort into their appearance – after all, you just walk on them, right?
In fact, a good floor plays an incredibly important role in our daily lives; a well-designed floor provides the foundation for our home, stability for us to walk on, for our children to learn to crawl on; it gives us protection from the elements, and even a psychological boost (After all, isn’t it wonderful to come home to a beautiful house!)
