Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a terrific almost-Friday. We are in the mood today to discuss fabulous flooring in all its forms!

From a statement rug to a chic slate, seagrass carpet to sumptuous wool, flooring can instantly affect the feel of a space. I think we can agree this one is luxurious to say the least!

We love all sorts of flooring to bring pizazz to a room, but, right now, we are really into herringbone floors.

A fun twist on an old favorite, herringbone adds interest to the floor without being too busy. By themselves or with a rug over top, they are so chic!

In a single color, they are beautiful, but different stains lend a totally different look.

This blend of shades is like the perfect highlights: multidimensional and very natural looking. We love how easy hardwoods are to clean in the kitchen. Functional and beautiful is the ideal combination!

Lighter stains feel urban and modern, in keeping with the trendy tone of this kitchen,

While darker stains are more refined, elegant and formal. Isn’t this gallery wall too fabulous? The mixture is wonderfully imperfect.

We aren’t sure which part of this closet we like best. The black, white and gold is such a beautiful color combination.

This washed look in the bathroom contributes to the overall spa-like feel of this stunning bathroom. It is so streamlined and lovely, exactly the kind of place we’d like to start and end our day.

Are you a fan of herringbone floors? Or do you prefer your hardwoods in a regular pattern?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love it when you stop by!
