I'm feeling really drawn to 24" tiles. I just love the grandeur of them. To me, they really open up a space.

The tile in these rooms just screams spacious to me and I like it.

So running with that idea, I've been thinking of flooring for my dream house and what I would like to do to the kitchen once we demo it to enlarge and add a breakfast room. And I am just gaga over this:


That wood and tile combo is the cat's meow! It gives the feel of the larger tile that I love and the walnut planks warms up the kitchen nicely as well as ties into the cabinetry.

I also think it will tie into the rest of the house... (look at me planning the flooring in a house I don't have yet, here's to wishful thinking) as I want tile in the foyer and rich, dark hardwood on all the floors.

Like this for the foyer:

And this for the rest of the flooring:

I just love how crisp these looks are.

If any of these images are yours, please let me know so I may credit you or remove, if you wish. I can't for the life of me remember where I found them.

i'm not a fan of tile - i just think "florida" for some reason - i dunno .. my whole house is hardwood, and i hate to admit it - i sorta miss carpet on my toes (thank god for area rugs, right?!) .. but i LOVE that last picture - is that dark tile?! .. that looks FAB!

Hi Erika!

I totally understand.. tile does give off "Florida" but when done right, it's fabulous.

The last pic is your fav, hardwood.

I love the really dark, rich wood against the light colored anything.. the entryway picture is just great. I love when designers get creative and mix together different materials and styles. It always turns out so cool. Great blog :)
