Indoor plant room, step one
When we ripped up the incredibly ugly brown/gray carpet in my former study, we found that there was really no floor. Most of the house has its original (restored) parquet flooring, with some wide-plank pine upstairs, but this (shown above) looked too crappy to bother finishing. So we chose some teak remnants at a hardwood place and they installed it. I could have gone with tile (or, yes, something more sustainable like bamboo) but I like wood, and I associate teak with outside use. So we’re really happy with it. Next: shoe molding goes in and the walls and ceiling will be painted.
