Tuesday, June 9th from 5-8pm at FLOR in Georgetown, 1037 33rd St. NW 

The FLOR store in Georgetown is inviting us stylish mothers (and fathers) to an exclusive party to celebrate innovative interior design. Attendees at this free event will have the chance to create an original FLOR rug that we can enter in the FLOR 2015 Design Challenge, and one winner at the event will win an 8 x 10 rug that they designed, worth $900!

There will be wine, food and swag. Also in attendance will be Robin Wilson, an award-winning interior designer signing copies of her new book Clean Design: Wellness for your Lifestyle.

I have loved FLOR since I learned about them around 2005 from favorite design blogs. I love how these carpet tiles can be configured to create a rug that meshes with your space and personal style. The carpet tiles are also eco-friendly and recyclable, and can be reconfigured at any time using the FLOR dots attachment system.

And if, like me, you have flipped through endless hangings of rugs in stores and online, but cannot find exactly what you need, FLOR offers more than 600 individual carpet squares styles!  You can truly design the rug size and style of your dreams.

At the Georgetown party you and I will get a chance to play designer as we assemble a small-scale version of a FLOR rug using sample-sized carpet tiles to design our own unique contest entries. Wilson, along with FLOR employees, will select the top rug design submitted that night and winner of the 8 x 10 rug prize.

FLOR will host similar events at 10 other FLOR store locations, and in addition to the 8 x 10 rug the finalists’ rugs will be posted on Web visitors will vote for their favorite design and the top vote-getter will see their rug in a future FLOR line displayed at FLOR stores across the country, name their rug and 50 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the rug will go to a charity of the winner’s choice (in collaboration with FLOR).

Will you join me on Tuesday night? See you there!
