9 Rooms with Chevron and Herringbone Floors

From light wood to darker tones a herringbone or chevron floor can be used in many types of home decor.  From elegant and classic style to modern to rustic, parquet flooring can add not only architectural details but dimension, texture and sometimes even drama when used in contrasting colors as the second image below illustrates. With two very similar types of zigzag flooring, it's easy to confuse one with the other.  For those still confused, Chevron patter floors meet at a straight line, forming a more zigzag or rectangular design, while a Herringbone floor the ends butt against each other, creating the zigzag effect.  This latter makes installation more challenging but they are both equally worth the work and time.

Difference between Chevron and Herringbone
In this  space above the tiles are thick but still form a beautiful black and white chevron floor.  Love how the wood paneling and coffered ceiling warm up the space.

A very interesting hallway when the floor is in chevron pattern.  The clever use of what it seems to be the kitchen island piercing through the pivoting window facilitates entertaining while adding interest to the room.

A Sneek Peek to Columbus Decorators' Show House

On Friday morning I got a preview of this year's Columbus Decorator's Show House where as I posted here, 11 designers had the challenge and privilege of creating 11 spaces inside Columbus Museum of Art.  Each space was unique with each Interior designer's own interpretation of their spaces.  If you live in the Columbus area you should really go and see these spaces in person because photos don't do them justice.

The Portal by David M. Berg.  According to David, the space is like an Art installation in its self, and an anticipation of things to come.  The spaces were on the small side and photographing them wasn't too easy, especially to capture the best of these rooms.  The photos of this entryway don't do it justice: the space is very inviting with reclaimed herringbone floors and the way David organized the books in an ombre effect was very clever and artistic.

The Bar above and below, was designed by Sally McDonald and her team of designers.  They used a wallpaper that resembles a mural to relate to the art of the Museum.

The Kitchen was designed by Angela Bonfante.  Angela inspired on Art.  She used hand painted tiles over the range and the gold touches throughout gave the space a dramatic flair while still being inviting.

There were three bedrooms among the spaces.   This bedroom designed by CRI Interiors is called Scandinavian Inspired Bedroom.  John Wilson describes it as Boho Glam room, a style infusing natural materials with a chic modern edge.
