Herringbone wood floors are a dream of mine. Something about a wood floor that either is old or scraped and treated so it looks old with the planks laid in a herringbone pattern. I need a herringbone wood floor somewhere in my life. Right now, as I reside in my little tiny cottage in the Hollywood Hills, a herringbone wood floor is very difficult in a small space…so I will have to wait.
Until then, I can gawk at the herringbone wood floors in this Barcelona apartment designed by self taught interior designer Katty Schiebeck. Just the right shade for this look, just the right width of herringbone, just the right texture of the wood. The floors enhance the design of the room and compliment the rest of the architecture and furniture. Here’s what I like about this pattern of wood floor…it means that the room’s furnishings can be minimalist yet feel rich and layered. The floors round out the modernity of this space.
Love the bright white walls, the paneled double bedroom doors, the carved stone fireplace, the sleek kitchen cabinets, the unique marble kitchen island. It all works layered on top of these fab floors!
I love everything about this apartment really. Everything. Including the unique marble kitchen island with the cut out look under the sink. Design perfection. What do you think?
P.S. Had drinks with my friend and architect Tom Newman the other day. He has wonderful style. I bet he could figure out a way for me to have herringbone wood floors in my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills. Or even somehow figure out that island for me. And adding a few hundred more square feet. Hint hint. Tom?
