Inspired Kitchen Mood Board | Carpet One Floor & Home | Twenty of 2020


Do you have one of those rooms in your house you just don't want anyone else to see? I sure do have a couple. One of them is my kitchen. I've dreamed of all the different things I've wanted to do to the room for 8 years now. With Carpet One's Twenty of 2020 top flooring products of the year in my hands, I felt inspired to create a mood board to create a visual representation of the room I'd create today.

Inspired Kitchen Mood Board

There are two things I've known for certain that I wanted in my own kitchen and that I think are timeless choices for a kitchen design: Wood flooring (or a look a like) and Peacock painted cabinets. While that may seem bold for many people, there's a lot of character and charisma in those choices. With the right undertones, they feel sophisticated instead of an attempt at being trendy. I've carefully chosen colors, finishes and patterns to pull into this design board to reflect the feel of my perfect 2020 kitchen design.

Flooring Picks

Rustic River Roosevelt Hill in Summerfield
Mirror Lake Laminate Portside Village in Knights Armor - coming soon

Carpet One curated the top flooring of 2020 as experts in the industry. There is every type of flooring with the newest technologies available in timelessly trendy designs. I chose two different types of flooring for my design board because who doesn't love options?

The Rustic River hardwood in Summerfield in the Roosevelt Hill style is a soft brown hardwood made from Red Maple. Visually there's an interesting grain but the surface is smooth. Smooth surfaces are great for cleaning up and I know I need that in my kitchen.

The Mirror Lake Laminate in Knights Armor in the Portside Village style is a grey toned wood look product. Again, it has a visually interesting grain with and easy to clean smooth surface.

The muted tone in each of these make it a perfect choice to use in a variety of rooms and styles. I like going with something midtoned as a safe choice because it's easy to change things around. With a more permanent choice like flooring, having longevity is so important!

The Paint Colors

Benjamin Moore Venitician Portico AF-185
Benjamin Moore Tea Room AF-270
Benjamin Moore Dragonfly AF-510 
Benjamin Moore Wish AF-680

I chose to go with a complimentary mix of soft muted rose/wine/mauve and a dusty peacock color. Dragonfly would be my cabinet color because it's in the peacock family of colors without being too bright. It's a lovely color that can be dressed up or down and would look fantastic with either flooring

I can't live without upper cabinets but I'd do a mix with some open shelving. On the wall with some open shelving I'd use the color Tea Room. It'll pop against the Dragonfly color. And on the other walls I'd use Venetician Portico as it's still in that same family of color but lighter.

And then the color Wish would be my island to visually open up the floor space and add a touch of brightness.

The Accent Decor Colors

Pantone 7720

Pantone 15-1247 Tangerine

Pantone 15-0942 Sauterne

As for accents, I'd pull in the peacock color again in small doses but would predominately choose pieces in the Tangerine and Sauterne family of colors. I love that these add an unexpected pop of warmth against all the dusty, muted colors. Things like mixing bowls and hand towels would really pop and could easily be changed if it ended up feeling like too much. There isn't really a too much for me though. Those colors are fabulous and add the fun, whimsical touch I am always after.

Beautiful Design Made Simple

Beautiful Design Made Simple is the seasonal magazine from Carpet One. In the Spring issue, there's a spread on Spanish Revival. This, this is the vibe. Add some deep paint colors to this page and that's exactly my inspiration. Kind of a Spanish revival meets Parisian Chic. I would love to add that tile, a light in that chandelier style, and that rug (see that Sauterne-like color in it?)  to everything else I've chosen. 

About The Accessories

Anthropologie Karala Pine Wood & Marble Cheese Board

Adding accessories to a design board can help invoke the feeling a final room design would have. Sometimes the accessories are literal inspiration like knobs and other times it can be things like jewelry. For this design board I found two different knob styles look phenomenal on their own but add some eclecticism to the design by using both. You really couldn't go wrong using one on the light colored island and the other on the deep cabinets.

While the cheeseboard is something that can be used physically in the kitchen (and it totally would be used in my imaginary dream kitchen), I chose it to represent a quartz style countertop. It was really the final item I needed to represent everything going into this design.

I'm excited to see these 20 for 2020 flooring trends pop up in interiors throughout the year. There's a uniform vibe tying all of them together - I really could see all of them used in one home seamlessly.
