Décor Inspiration ~ Vintage Maps and Herringbone Floors



   I have been thinking of redoing our kitchen floors in a herringbone pattern.  The shade that I will choose will be darker than the one pictured above to contrast light cabinetry.  I also love vintage maps and want to incorporate either a large map or a collage like the one below on our staircase wall.  There was a vintage Paris map in an apartment we rented in Paris that we instantly loved.  We found a very large one in an antique shop here in St. Louis shortly after and before we measured and made the decision to purchase it, it was sold.  It wasn’t an original so my heart wasn’t entirely broken and, truthfully, I felt it was over priced.

 
What are your thoughts on vintage maps and herringbone floors?  Decisions, decisions…

    Never thought about either before, but your blog has now inspired me to do so. I love the idea of the antique maps. Saw it once in a library in someone's “palatial” home in France and it fitted perfectly. I love the wood flooring you've picked and I think in a darker shade will look lovely and rich.
    Thank you also for your lovely comments over at mine; so appreciated xx
