Vidicom CEO, Christy Ferer, says as the largest uninterrupted surface in any space, the floor sets the tone of a room. Warim it up with texture and color. Cool it down with hard surfaces and steely or transparent neutrals. Treat it like a blank foundation on which to showcase your moveable parts--the furnishings and accessories that are going to make your tableau. But whatever you do, know that the floor can be manipulated to contrast or complement your design scheme.
