First on the list, Herringbone. Love it. It’s a slight departure from the norm. It’s a statement. And paired with some gray grout, it’s down right sexy. My question…Is it timeless?
What if Herringbone isn’t set on a diagonal, like the above? What if it’s all horizontal and vertical and you have to cock your head to the side to see the diagonal? It feels a bit more traditional in my mind. Provides a good pop but nothing absolutely bananas.
Next Up, Vertical Tile on a Vertical Running Bond. I like it. It’s fun, but I prefer the horizontal version of this. You know, the traditional subway tile pattern. This just feels busy to me.
How about, Vertical Tile on a Horizontal Running Bond. Woah! Simple with only a slight stray from the norm. I like it. It’s unexpected. It’s a contender.
Then there’s Crosshatch. So simple, yet so purty. The symmetry almost makes it feel organic, which is something I really like about this. I don’t think you can go wrong here.
Now here is where I kindly ask for your opinion. What do you think? Do you have any favorites? Maybe there are some you would nix in a heartbeat. Let me know!
