Herringbone floors

To all those concerned readers who politely told me I was insane for wanting white floors, fear not. We won’t be having white planks in our new home. But, I do love the aesthetic!

Here are some more photos to feed your appetite. Herringbone. We won’t be doing this either, but I think this style can look absolutely amazing. Think Parisian salon.

Paint it White

It’s official. We’ve started our new house build. The interior demolition began yesterday, the rest will come down shortly. There will be tons of decisions to be made along the way – lots of which I hope to share.

I thought picking floors was going to be one of the easy ones – wide plank, dark stain – but check out these stunning rooms with white floors.

Ah, decisions decisions…
