Welcome to Design track mind by Melissa Gulley

I am an interior designer from Newton, MA having a lot of fun writing this blog between client appointments, kid stuff, kid school stuff, dog stuff, husband stuff, husband's company stuff (http://www.fueldog.com/), life stuff, old house stuff, family stuff, extended family stuff and the rest of the detail stuff. I am not a writer (clearly) so please ignore the typo's, spelling mistakes and desperate need for proofreading.

Herringbone floors

Sometimes when looking at finished room I so appreciate a patterned floor.  Now of course this can be easily accomplished by purchasing a rug.  However, I have to say a two tone geometric floor with an energetic pattern sometimes is just the verve the room is needing.  It could be installed or a carpet, but check out these rooms with herringbone floors- very classic but a little zingy and only two colors to pop everything else in the space.  These first ones are carpets- amazing how they work with more traditional and less traditional spaces alike.

Then of course we have the incredibly beautiful installed hardwood Herringbone floors:

And the painted over style:
