Style Insider and Carpet Court ambassador Leonie Barlow shares how a modern home renovation all comes down to flooring.
I’VE ONLY EVER USED CARPET COURT FOR MY FLOORING BECAUSE ITS PRODUCTS REALLY STAND THE TEST OF TIME.
Leonie Barlow, who runs the popular The Style Insider blog, recently undertook a modern and (naturally) stylish renovation of her Auckland home.
Transforming her dining room into a much-needed second lounge, Barlow chose Quickstep Majestic laminate flooring in Valley Oak Light Beige from Carpet Court. “I love this flooring because the planks are extra-long and -wide and the colour lightens the room as well as making it look bigger,” she says.
Barlow chose to work with Carpet Court as a long-time customer. “I’ve only ever used Carpet Court for my flooring because its products really stand the test of time and its installation teams are top notch, too.” Here’s how to steal her style.
