Creating an oasis in the middle of a city is all about maintaining crisp, clean, organized spaces that offer a contrast to the bustle of urban life.
This year’s Urban Oasis is a charming, Southern-inspired escape located in Louisville, Kentucky. It features three bedrooms (including a truly luxurious primary suite!), a gorgeous open-plan living space, chic outdoor dining, and more.
We know you’re dying to take a peek at those impeccable interiors. Viva® is here to walk you through room to room, so you can learn our tips for making your house an oasis by keeping it spotless—and pick up some interior design ideas along the way!
HGTV keeps things cool and calm in the kitchen with deep blue cabinets that reach all the way to the ceiling to add abundant storage and enhance the room’s height. Checkerboard walls, brass accents, and plenty of natural light complete the look.
Choosing statement colors for kitchen cabinets and geometric patterns for walls is the perfect way to make your kitchen design feel calm and grounded. Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ paper towels are perfect for ensuring these statement features shine. To remove grease and grime from cabinet doors, tile, backsplashes and more—simply tear off a sheet, spritz some all-purpose cleaner, and wipe clean.

Mustard yellow built-in cabinets and two rust-colored modern sofas are the centerpiece of the living room, adding warm, bold color that contrasts with the cool tones of the kitchen.
When your sofa is an intentional design piece that brings together the whole room, the last thing you want is for upholstery stains to spoil the effect.
If something spills, reach for a sheet of Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ to mop up any excess liquid. Then, grab a clean sheet, wet it, and continue to dab away the stain until the paper towel comes up clean. Leave to dry—and voila!
In the main bedroom, it’s all about wooden features and earthy tones to create a soothing, forest-inspired space. An antique church pew and pine dressers sleekly furnish the room and bring the outside in.
To keep your home’s wooden furniture dust-free, reach for Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ paper towels to wipe away dust and debris on a daily basis, using furniture polish as needed.
The main bathroom is truly a showstopper, including an enormous, freestanding soaking tub with a classic white finish. White tile floors keep things feeling bright and airy against green plaid wallpaper, while a rain shower enclosure fitted completely with white subway tile adds a new level of radiance.
With all that white, daily cleaning is essential to maintain the full effect. But don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be complicated!
Avoid water marks after taking a shower or bath by wiping out the tub, shower doors and walls with a dry Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ paper towel. To keep the floors free of dust and stray hairs, there’s no need to buy expensive mop pads. Just spray a paper towel with your cleaning solution and place it onto your mop, exactly like you would with a branded mop pad.
(And don’t forget all those beautiful brass faucets! Use a paper towel soaked in vinegar to remove water spots and mineral build-up.)
The rooftop deck offers a spacious outdoor living area to enjoy with friends and family. Modern furniture with comfortable cushions are the centerpiece.
Caring properly for outdoor furniture is essential to maintaining these valuable entertainment spaces in your own home. Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ paper towel is ideal for removing stains and debris, and freshening up outdoor furniture all through the summer season.
