Floors


I never realized how cool a floor could be...



































Would you, could you, embrace a floor like these?

In a word, YES - especially that compass.

Terri, I just saw the comment you left me on my "What I've learned" post- Thank you so much! Btw, I've been wanting to do something fun with the wood floor in my entry way for a while now. A couple of these photos have been in my inspiration folder! I just haven't been able to decide or devote the time to it!! ;)

I could do some but not all. I don't like things to be too busy. The one with the floor AND the ceiling done would drive me nuts but the clean more simple ones are quite lovely to me.

So many gorgeous examples, I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite.
Great post Terri!

I've always loved painted floors. My current place has brazilian cherry so I likely wouldn't be doing any painting but hopefully my next place will have floors needing a facelift and any one of these would be perfect! :)

Really liking the wide planks and the ones with the compass on them.

Those are some beauties! You could so easily do the wood plank floor, (Blond-wood image) with the the back-room all white. I totally can picture that at your house. Same long hallway!

I'm floored!!! What creative takes on the basic ole floor. I think my hardwoods are feeling a twinge of envy!

What beautiful examples. And what a creative way to liven up a space. My favorites are the turquoise bathroom floor and the herringbone pattern "wood" next to it - gorgeous. Kat

Debby said...

These are great finds! I fell in love with the first image! xo

My favorite is the painted compass. I have always been a big fan of wooden floors.

Susan said...

These are amazing! It makes me want to get out my paintbrush and stencils right now! XX!

Ann said...

The black and white chevron patterns are great! I don't know where I would do this though. I wonder if a bathroom would be too small. Maybe I will start with a rug first. Gorgeous pictures!

Acquired Objects said...

Love those floors but I'm a low keyed sort of gal so that compass would do it for me...love it! Love that second image it's a killer!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

All of the floors are dazzling. It would be almost impossible to choose a favorite. From casual to elegant...all are magnificent.

jenna @ alittlebleu said...

I could just lick that black and white floor in the last photo -- well, almost! All great floors and one lovely ceiling (pink and white).

I thought that I would return the favor and hop over here to see your blogs! Merci!

Would, could
IF the man of
the house were
more open to it!
What a great collection
of floor images.
I enjoyed the tour!

To answer your last question, YES, YES I WOULD!

Scarlett Fiona Reed said...

OMG YES! I love almost every single one, and remember that black and white stripe from the house in Round Top. Beautiful rooms as well, thanks for posting!
