Talking Finally able to figure out color options for our forthcoming 2017 escape 21'

Hi all Very excited here - we finally were able to figure out what color options for the forthcoming 2017 escape 21’ trailer!

We wanted something quite modern and clean looking, with no repeating patterns.

We didn’t want a stone, wood or brick patterned floor…. so that immediately narrowed the options!

Fabric (on the dinette seat cushions) will be black…. a soft, synthetic, durable fabric that is appropriate for RV seat cushions.
Pattern is called "Heavenly" and color "Caviar" which is black.
Heavenly 9009 Caviar,Woven,Chenille,Upholstery Fabric

The Formica (for the kitchen counter top and the dinette table, and the small top of the drawer stack) will be Formica # 8830-58 (matte) “Elemental Concrete”
Formica® Laminate - Elemental Concrete

The vinyl flooring will be Armstrong Premium Vinyl sheet flooring
Duality G6080 (off white, with very faint leaf imprints)
It looks WAY too beige on the website… in reality it is more of a creme color. Very neutral.

Framingham - Natural | G6080 | Vinyl Sheet

Happy to have all these decisions behind us.

What do you all think?

Sure like the combination of the three! Will be a good contrast with the cabinets! The end result being a modern look with a warm feeling.

Thanks Marry!!! Much appreciated.

Your kind works made my day.

It has been a long journey to get here.

One key piece of advice that I got here ( that was great advice) from Greg A. was .... 80 % of samples viewed online look nothing like the reality.

I would tend to agree, based on my experience.

The flooring (both photo and web link, above) is a great example. My photo is a good representation of the actual color. The manufacturers photo is waaayyyy too yellow, overall.

Very nice combination. What did you decide on the valances?

Thanks Greg.

(Did you notice how I paid you a well deserved compliment, above?)



So... The beauty of going with black for the fabric means that we automatically get black valances - and that will look nice with the black frames of the windows.

We considered saving $10/ valance if we just deleted them all... However I think the valances do add a nice finished look to the blinds.

And perhaps the valances add a TINY amount of protection for the blinds, when they are up.

(?)

Of course then, you have to update your iTunes library.

I agree the black will look very good on the valances, especially with the contrast of the light floor.
Can't wait to see it in the wild.
I'm not sure what Glenn is up to either unless it's a play on valance, i.e. Ricky Valance or some such. I don't have time right now to watch the video.

You got it Greg. I didn't watch the video either and I have all the time in the world.

Cool....

and.... one generally might think that such a light colored floor is a bad idea (and one might be very smart to think that) however our plan is to put down wide 'runners' to catch much of the dust and grime that gets tracked in when camping... especially in drought California!

but the good news is that we aren't 'precious' when camping, and a little dust on the floor doesn't bug us.

You and me both!!! We are excited to do the upgrade from our 17' Casita, and go camping, with substantially more space inside.
