This lovely apartment incorporates herringbone floors around a modernized concept; however, this type of distinctive wooden floor is a parquet pattern originated in Europe. Some believe it came into existence because the technique was rather easy and it also matched the zig-zag brick layout that adorned buildings and churches for centuries.
Nevertheless, herringbone floors should not be confused with chevron designed parquet floors. Chevron floors use planks of wood of matched dimensions in a zig-zag pattern, while herringbone floors are laid out in a more jagged type design.
The herringbone floor that accentuates this lovely living room area enhanced by natural light is stunning. The living room has a solid esthetic appeal with an unusual color combination. The orangish-peach shade is a difficult color to assimilate in any décor; however, the decorators managed to pull it off flawlessly. Combined with teal blue cushions and sofa, sprinkled with natural and muted hues, this vivid combination brings the entire room to life. Additional materials such as glass and metal add a modernized touch without being overwhelming. Fine accent pieces, including the pewter gray accent wall, offer a balanced contemporary flair with quiet sophistication.
The living room trend extends into a casual work area with leisure, practical furnishings. The natural lighting is soft and natural materials in the form of art pieces provide a solid backdrop of cool earthiness.
The apartment décor takes advantage of impressive pieces with ethnic highlights. For example, in the wide corridor area the distinctively shaped rug with matching hassock has a beaded effect, which resembles a number of cultures from Indian to African influences. Unique lighting and floor to ceiling drapes add a dramatic effect.
Gray is the primary shade in the kitchen area. It’s perfectly accented with shiny appliances, marble, and customized tiled floor. Wood furnishings bring the entire look together creating a comfy atmosphere that you love to cook, eat, and entertain in.
The bedroom is an homage to simplicity coupled with a unique rawness. It’s completely unpretentious, yet exceptional. The colors used are not easy when dealing with interior decorating.

Everything from the two butterfly shaped accent chairs to the dramatic black closet and fine parquet floor bring the entire look together.
Bathrooms should be placid and fresh with an inviting ambiance for relaxation and healing. This bathroom décor hits all the right spots and more! Glimmering ice-green tiles and glistening fixtures with ceramic white bathtub, toilet, and storage and marble sink is sensational. The minute bronze accents add a special touch of elegance with ease.
