HIGHLIGHTING HERRINGBONE


A few months ago, I came across a photo of a friend that had installed a skinny and long white tile in a herringbone pattern on their kitchen floor.  It was AHmazing....  I saved the photo on my phone, and every once in awhile come back and just look and admire.  Not sure how large their kitchen floor is - but per what I saw in the pic, there is no way this floor was laid in one day...or two....

I am thinking everyone has this - but I have a running list in my head of things I want to do on the 'next' house; you know that forever house everyone always talks about?  I probably should start writing some of these thoughts down - or maybe it's good its only in my head.  Hopefully, I forget a few of these items... as there is no way I will be able to do it all.  This herringbone tile pattern in a large floor or shower space has definitely been added to the "forever" list.  But it's important to note the size of the tile used does make a huge difference in the statement you are going after.  While I like the normal subway tiles used (and included among photos below) - my favorite, for a flooring application is when a skinny/slender and long (think a 2x6) tile is used.  I have hunted for these - and they are extremely hard to find.

You can never go wrong with marble:

Really digging on the center layout in this large master bath:

 This striated marble flooring is gorgeous and such a statement:

 Here is a backsplash application using the longer, rectangle shaped tile:

Outside of that stunning floor, this sweet little guy makes the perfect welcome party:

 These are very similar to the size of the tiles I would like to use on a large floor pattern.  The colored tile really pops in this all white bathroom; despite the patterned floor.

 Here is a herringbone using a wood tile.  I have really seen these wood tiles being used more and more and love seeing it used in this pattern:

 One of my favs from Erin @ Elements of Style...she really can not go wrong:

 Look at that range hood...or I mean backsplash...

Has anyone used a herringbone pattern in your tile projects?  Per the husband it shouldn't be too difficult to lay...you all know I am always up for a diy project, lol.
