Design Inspiration: Beautiful Floors

Chicago DesignInterior Design Inspiration



Who doesn't love a little eye candy, especially when it comes in the form of interior design inspiration?

Pinterest is one of my favorite places to find inspiration, and I've been obsessed with pinning wildly decorative floors. Whether it's a gorgeous patterned Moroccan tile, an in-laid wooden stunner, or something just perfectly imperfect, a great floor pattern gets me in the mood (to decorate that is).  There's something about a patterned floor - it's gorgeous in its own right but paired with the perfect room and decor - it can take a space from 'nice' to amazing!

I  worked on a design project for a show house in the iconic Chicago Merchandise Mart. It was a modern interpretation of Alice's trip down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. I used exaggerated shapes to highlight the fantasy of this fairytale with a modern-day twist, including one of my favorite floor patterns - a black and white harlequin floor.

Take a peek at a few of my favorite floors I've been pinning on my Pinterest page:

And my favorite floor of all? Although it's hard to choose, it's impossible to not adore a gorgeous Moroccan tile - just look at the picture below and try to resist booking a ticket right now!
