Decorating details - floors

When it comes to decorating, it is the little details that could sometimes make all the difference. The fabrics you use for your window, the tiles you use for your floor, the door knobs you choose etc...With so many options to choose from, it is too easy to get overwhelmed by all these tiny details. That is why I find it helpful to catalogue design ideas I like and reference them when I need them at a later time.

I really hope to be able to post more inspiring ideas and tips on decorating in Laissezfaire. If you have a favourite resource (magazines, designers, blogs, shops etc...) to share on decorating, do email me or drop a comment at this post. For now, I would like to share some of my favourite ideas for floor surfaces from Livingetc. If you would like to see more, click here.

(above) White mosaic tiling for bathrooms not only looks great, it make the space feel clean and fresh.
(above) I just love this orange resin floor. Tough and practical, the orange adds a rich glow and really warms up the space. For more information on resin floors, click here.

(above) A dark wood floor gives a room an old fashioned feel. Pair this with simple white furnishings to achieve a classic elegant look that is timeless.

(above) The floorboards at the entrance hallway is painted black to create some drama. Here the recessed doormat is flush with the boards to keep the area neat and tidy.
