Do you remember reading my post about wall-to-wall carpeting a few months back? About how it’s making a comeback?
Well if you didn’t, now you won’t have to!
The AP interviewed me last week for a story about it, and it hit the papers – and the web-waves – yesterday. Newsday, The Washington Post, and abc.com lead the list, but the story also was carried by aol news, The Albany Times-Union, and others.
Most papers also carried 2 of my – (“my” = the work of my fabulous photographer, Michael Wilkinson) pictures, which was super duper.
What’s new about wall-to-wall is PATTERN. That and color. We’re not talking about the beige berber you have in your basement. We’re talking about strong, graphic carpeting.
(Huh? What’s the name of the carpeting in the bedroom pictures? I knew you were going to ask that…I think the name involves the word, “princess,” but I’m going to have to let you know when I’m back in my real, non-remote office with all of my files. Sorry about that.)
In any event, Gentle Readers, the stigma is gone. Carpet away!
