This article has me looking at my floor in a new light.


I’ve always had a thing for patterned floors. I think they remind me of my travels and how different patterns can have different meanings. It’s fun to think of the floor as an accessory that helps to bring furniture alive. We’ve seen a wide range of floors in the sneak peeks, but today’s Best Of is a look at some fun alternatives. — Anne
