Gorgeous Kiera! Esp love that black & white stripe in the bathroom! I need to create a floorplan for my own place with square footage. Mind sharing what program you used to create yours? Great job.

City living! Any recommendations for soundproofing floor against impact or footfall noise (aka two toddlers who like to run and jump!) I own my home and will be installing new hardwood floor. While I am at it, might as well try to combat this problems. My floor has 2x12 joists with OSB subfloor. Anyone with experience out there who can shed light regarding products and/or installation? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi. Sounds like a versatile product. I am considering this product for soundproofing a floor within a multifamily home in order to lower impact footfall noise. Also have heard of Noble Seal SIS underlayment and QuickGround 500 rubber underlayment. My floor has 2x12 joists with OSB subfloor. Actual floor will be nailed down hardwood. Any opinions regarding any of these soundproofing products and/or recommendations re: installation? Any help would be appreciated.

How To Deep Green Clean Your Carpets

Hi. Surprised no one has made mention of shag rugs. My husband convinced me to buy a 5' x 7' deep pile wool shag rug and I find it impossible to keep clean. No matter how much I vacuum, dirt & dust settle into its deep crevices. Beating the rug is tough since it's soo heavy. Anyway have any suggestions or know of a good cleaner for this type of rug in NYC-area? Thank you!
