  • Style Your Modern Home With Painted Floors


    Painted Floors

    Everyone wants a space that reflects them and who they are as an individual. We also want to be unique and one of a kind. Not reflecting a showroom but rather a beautiful space full of personality and style. A fun solution to create such a space in a modern home is painted flooring. Whether it’s a pattern or a solid color, painted floors add a fun, unexpected surprise to your space.

    Above we see small triangle patterns scattered on a white floor. I love the variety of black and gold triangles. And I love that they are randomly placed. It’s a look that is neutral enough to go with any accent color.

    This wide black stripe is a small detail that creates a big statement. They started with a dark gray concrete and simply painted the stripe. Who needs a rug when you already have a nice design on the floor?!

    This look makes a huge impact in this room. This black and white pattern effortlessly fills the entire space and looks amazing! The stylishly modern furniture and delicate accessories compliment the pattern.

    For a neutral look, try painting your hardwood floors in a nice soft white. It will immediately lighten up your space and make all of your furniture and accessories pop. The painted floors trend can be translated any way that you please!

    The web is such a great place to seek inspiration for dining room lighting. If you're in need of some creative direction, there are endless resources to turn to online that just might spark your design direction. When I start on a room I go hunting for inspiration on-line and then head to my print magazines.

    Today I wanted to showcase three beautiful examples of dining room lighting that I've been loving lately. Each have beautiful lighting above the tables that you can incorporate into any home. I've pulled similar light fixtures so you can "get the look" of these inspiring rooms.

    Hopefully this will provide you with a starting point (or finishing touch ideas) for your very own home.
