I am not really a decor hound. But there are a few things that I am absolutely firm on about where I live. Wood floors are one of them. Walking on a wood floor after being somewhere with a concrete or wall to wall floor, to me, feels almost as good as walking on the grass after spending too much time on the street.
Add a great pair of artisan crafted boots to the equasion, and you have the satisfying, clunk, clunk, clunk sound that the cowboys made when they walked into the saloon in the old days. Now *that* is a treat to be savored!
While more appropriate for waltzing, rather than spurs a jangling, the pattern designer in me is totally in love with anything parquet at the moment. I just adore the contrast in the grain, and the lovely geometry in the motifs. It's such a great synthesis of the predictable and the natural.
****update**** forgot one! see below...this may be my fave!
