I adore hardwood floors either in dark, dark brown or ebony that it’s almost black or painted white for a cottage feel. But lately, I’ve been swooning over black and white floors. It seems a neutral plus another neutral equals a bold statement but it’s still not over the top. With white and black floors, images of a 1950’s diner first comes to mind, but as you will see, you can go black and white in different patterns.
1. In a Zigzag pattern, it exudes a modern feel 2. Simply checks is always a classic 3. Diagonal lines? Looks fab! 4. Striped gives it a coastal feel 5. At first I thought this was an area rug, but it’s a quirky pattern in marble 6. Of course I adore everything with a dash of gray 7. Diamond pattern 8. Lattice gives it a traditional feel 8. The beehive pattern — David Hicks would love this!
What do you think? Eclectic but classic. Sophisticated yet not pretentious! Now, let me see if I can do any of these patterns in stencil.
