tile talk

I spend a lot of time (probably more than I'd like to admit) thinking about my "dream" house. What colors I'd use on the walls, which sofa I'd choose, art I'd hang, etc. Before Kate Arends posted updates on her home renovations I'd never thought of graphic, patterned tiles with much interest, but with each Instagram of her kitchen I'm drawn to them more. The way I think about it, a fun, subtle pattern in flooring means I can choose all the neutrals my heart wants for the rest of the decor. Amber Lewis, another of my favorite interiors experts, uses them frequently too!

Blacks, whites, and grays appeal to me since I'm a relatively monochromatic person anyway, but other than that the opportunities are almost endless. I'm still living in my rental apartment with no changes on that front in the near future, but I can still dream...
