We admit it, ever since spotting it in J.Crew’s Jenna Lyon’s old apartment, we’ve been hooked on herringbone wood floors in the bathroom. It’s hip but homey, riffs off traditional tilework, and just looks that much more special. Keep your stain on the lighter side so that the design is easy to make out.
Light walnut flooring. I really like this; again, could be the perfect compromise between a light and dark floor and it has the nice cooler ash tone (not the yellow tones I can't stand). Team this with the lighter coloured floorboards from the other pin on this pinboard - bedrooms in the darker tones, all other areas with the lighter wood or the reverse of that.
