We read about a great new initiative in New4Jax. It’s called “Every Kid in a Park,” and 4th graders around the country will receive free passes to get into national parks. Source: www.news4jax.com News4Jax by Click 2 Houston.Com
The idea is that kids can learn about history, wildlife, and nature. Research has shown that this type of activity is best for 4th graders, because when a kid reaches that age, he or she starts to get open-minded and curious about the world.
They learn about beauty, nature, and the country’s treasures.
Speaking of natural treasures, hardwood is the gem of your house. If you’re looking for hardwood in Jacksonville, FL, look no further than About Floors n’ More.
Hardwood adds a rich beauty to any home in Jacksonville, FL, whether it’s light, dark or medium, with undertones that could be red, orange, cream, blue or green, brown, etc. With those colors and undertones, you can highlight, contrast, add drama, or soften.
For instance, here are just a few decorating tips when you’re using hardwood in your Jacksonville, FL: home. You might:
● Use rugs. Place some area rugs strategically over the hardwood. Want contrast? Say your rug is red-orange, which is a warm tone. Paint the walls with a cooler tone, such as, perhaps, blue-gray. Or highlight: If your hardwood floor is dark hardwood with some warm red-orange undertones, place a red area rug to highlight those undertones.
● Combine light and dark. Does your kitchen have stainless steel appliances and white cabinets? The obvious choice would be a light hardwood floor, but a dark one could make everything stand out.
● Coordinate. People often think it’s necessary to match, but we’re often surprised when something that seems counter intuitive really works (like chocolate-covered potato chips; who among us hasn’t been surprised at how great they taste?) Take mahogany hardwood floors; you think mostly traditional, right? Surprise, they can look great in contemporary spaces!
● Stay neutral. If your floor is light or medium, and lacks undertones, you may want to go with that for a theme, by using pale or neutral tones in your upholstery and accessories.
