In the last week or so two of my favorite bloggers have posted about herringbone floors. Erin from Elements of Style posted some inspirational pictures earlier this week and Jenny from Little Green Notebook has been going over her plans for putting in new hardwood floors at her house. Its been a great reminder to me on how much I love a good herringbone pattern on a wood floor.
Herringbone is like a chic version of chevron. But really, I love how it dresses up a room.
LOVE this ash gray finish on the floor paired with the gray built in.
The real downside to doing a herringbone pattern with your flooring is the cost. It's more expensive then regular plank flooring. But if you love the look you could always consider doing the herringbone pattern in just one room. The entry, dining room or living room would be a great place to start.
You could also dot eh pattern with tile. Tile herringbone would look AMAZING on a bathroom floor, maybe for the master bathroom... or for a backsplash in the kitchen.
What do you think about the herringbone pattern?
