The elements of Life – Earth, Wind, Fire, Water and Spirit - reflect our deepest character and influence our preferences – from colours on our personal palette, to our favourite pastime, the type of holidays we enjoy, even our emotions.
Sometimes we are one, sometimes another, often we are of all them.
Because Belgotex understand that flooring is the foundation on which your unique decor is built, and each element resonates to particular colourways, we’ve developed a simple Quiz to ensure you’re always in your element.
Take our “Journey of Discovery”at www.inyourelement.co.za to reveal the core element that defines who you are and discover which flooring is the perfect fit for you
Spirit is ethereal. It is balanced, authentic, instinctive and intuitive. It is perfection and purity. It is loving and giving, metaphysical, and spiritual. Spirit is a tranquil haven – a peaceful space filled with beauty and perfection of design. It is neutral palettes and soft interiors, accented with individual subdued colours.
Air is lightness of being. It is intelligent, imaginative, quick-witted and amusing. Air values freedom, appreciates the abstract and sees the big picture. Air is high open spaces, contemporary minimalism, soft decor palettes, light accessories, industrial finishes and original art. Air is uncluttered, simplistic and functional. Air is the Home where you go to breathe.
Water is ever-flowing. It feels deeply and loves fully. It is dreamy and inconsistent, like the tides. Water loves flux, loves motion. It is easygoing, and can be bubbly or mystical. It’s nautical themes and beach decor, always cool like a driftwood sculpture, a flowing water feature or picture of wild waves crashing on a wall, seashells draped over a kitchen chandelier. Water is the soothing sanctuary where you go to relax and recharge.
Fire is the passion that brings about change. It is perceptive and creative, dynamic and impulsive. Fire is energy and enthusiasm, and is excited and inspired by new situations and places. Fire is a living home, eclectic and exciting, a collection of many exotic journeys. It is texture and tones, vintage and contemporary, and relaxed and unusual, carefree style.
Earth is all about the simple things in life. It is real, honest, rooted, nurturing and peaceful. Earth is honest and loyal, approachable and friendly, and loves laughter. Earth follows the heart and cares for the environment. Earth is creative, rich and textured. It loves the outdoors. It’s about cosiness and charm and character and warmth, a balance of the old and new. Earth is memories in old, rustic furniture, mix-n-match decor and the colours of autumn. It’s exposed roof beams on raw brick walls, milk cans filled with potted herbs. Earth homes are filled with memories, love and dreams.
The Lifestyle Collection was created specially to ensure you’re always in your element.
It’s a very special collection, featuring eleven fashionable floors inspired by the colours and textures of the five elements.
Whether you are Earth, Wind, Fire, Water or Spirit, you’ll find your favourite floor in the tones and textures that’ll make you feel right at home.
Simply select your favourite tone and texture out of nine different carpets or two different vinyls recommended specifically for your element.
Whittle down the options between the soft, sumptuous luxury of new Elegance, Bella Vista or Heather Twist cut-pile carpets or go for the chunky, convenient comfort of Cobble Ridge, Habitat, Timeless, Portrait, Stoneridge or Country Living.
If sleek ‘n smooth is more your style, Charleston luxury vinyl tiles or Toledo cushioned vinyl in trendy timber tones or cool, contemporary colours give you a stylish, water-proof surface.
