We are absolutely loving this pattern at the moment. Herringbone. This is a great example of how you can use pattern and texture to inject personality into a space if you want to keep within a neutral colour scheme. In the examples below, Herringbone is used in unexpected ways to really elevate a room's design. It looks especially effective on the wall and in large spaces.
Herringbone pattern looks equally effective with tiles. While some of us may think the white subway tile has had its moment, maybe not yet?
For me, the most striking and effective display of the Herringbone pattern is in this bathroom designed by Faye Toogood. The seemingly random placement of metallic tiles is quirky, unpredictable but engaging! Seriously, she is TOO good! (Sorry, couldn't pass on that pun).
