Singer/Songwriter Jewel and her rodeo champ husband Ty Murray created a warm, lived-in look for their new master bedroom in their recently renovated ranch in Stephenville, Texas and personally selected Character Flooring from HomerWood Premium Hardwood Flooring.
The couple worked with Kim Lewis, an imaginative designer known for her work on the television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to create a home with a warm décor, yet eclectic style for themselves and baby son Kase. Throughout the house, Lewis focused on a non-frilly décor approach using elements inspired by the 2,400 acre ranch and farm animals, including a wall made from salvaged-barn-wood, rough-hewn Tibetan carved wooden stands and a kitchen island designed to look like a giant packing crate.
"The rough, hand-scraped quality of the HomerWood floors fit the character of the home, and we loved the fact that the floors are made in the U.S.A.," said Lewis. “The hardwood floors reveal all of the tree’s natural imperfections, including original markings, distinctive graining and inherent characteristics."
In the bedroom, is HomerWood’s Amish Hand-Scraped Smoked Oak Graphite Oil finished floor. Created from the finest and most carefully selected hardwood planks and scraped by hand in a time-honored tradition, these HomerWood floors preserve each board’s natural characteristics, the very fingerprints of nature. Like a true piece of art, each plank bears the signature of the proud Amish craftsman who created it.
HomerWoodhas pioneered many innovations in the hardwood flooring industry including Character Grade, Amish Hand-Scraped and Smoked Specialties flooring. From classic to contemporarydesigns, 54 premium visualscomplement any interior. Specialty collections and custom options also areavailable.
Its manufacturing facility is situated in the heart of the Appalachian Mountain region in Titusville, PA, and the company is committed to protecting the environment and communities in which it works. That’s why they plant 2.29 trees for every tree they harvest.
“HomerWood is amazing,” said Lewis. “Since each tree provides its own unique natural characteristics, each floor is uniquely beautiful, whether it offers a smooth or highly-textured finish. These floors truly allow you to make a very personal statement in your home, while not compromising on quality or value.”
