Black and White Patterned Floors

Black and white tiled floors are a great way to dress up your home and add interest to any room.  Whether it be more classic and traditional patterns laid in marble or funky and trendy patterns laid with porcelain or cement tiles, we love them all!

This tight, triangular floor tile pattern makes a nice contemporary backdrop for an otherwise traditional style room.  We love the contrast of the graphic floor pattern with the classic fireplace and wall moldings.

A polished, large scale, diamond floor pattern could be laid with marble or glossy porcelain tiles.  This design would be great for a foyer or entryway.

A small, dark powder bathroom gets some flair with a stripy black and white floor.  The varying thicknesses of stripe in the pattern make this example a little more edgy.

We love this example of a large scale hexagon pattern in black and white marble with a matte finish.  The finish on this stone feels a little more relaxed.  The pattern and tones pair perfectly with the art in the room.

For a more organic pattern, this loopy, vine-like design is a beautiful option.  A pop of color, such as this emerald sofa bench makes for a nice accent against the black and white floors.

Brass Floor Inlay

Metal flooring inlay is an accent that has inspired some of our recent projects.  We are especially love the gold brass inlay detail in the lobby of the Envy residences in Scottsdale, our collaboration with Deco Communities.  This hotel bar boasts a gorgeous brass flooring design that has an Art Deco charm.

Brass inlay can be used as a great transition of flooring materials shown in this image below.  The detail has a traditional nostalgia about it, but still feels contemporary.

Concrete and brass create a beautiful puzzle of geometric shapes in this flooring design by Martin Boyce.

A thick stripe of brass tiles line the center of this Sydney bakery.  We are always fans of black white and gold; this combo works perfectly together.

Brass inlay lines these kitchen floors and separates two different tones of polished grey concrete floors.  The warm and cool tones create a fantastic contrast.

Another excellent example of brass inlay is shown in the bar of this restaurant.  The design runs from the ceiling to the floors, creating a striped pattern across the room.
