I have loved herringbone floors for as long as I can remember... there is something about them that resonates with my former life as a stylish parisian, at least the former life I wish I had... it's modern and vintage all at the same time and that is, without doubt, my favorite kind of design. Given the difficulty we had laying down flooring here, and coming up with the pattern, herringbone seems like it would actually be easier and so much more fun and rewarding. The next time I take on a flooring project, you can bet this style will be on my short list...
Also a quick sidebar... I have started a tumblr site! If you have any desire to follow along for gorgeous inspiration, feel free! It's one portion of my plan for Finding my True Design North, which I will share with you all soon!
