Geometric Floor Pattern

Martha Stewart Living, June 1996

Painting a floor can give form to a room where everything is function. Before you start painting, take a long look at the shape of the room: The more complicated its layout -- the more radiators and hearths and pillars it has -- the less complicated the floor pattern should be. The home office pictured here, formerly a small bedroom, seems to be enlarged by a floor painted with oversize squares in closely related tones of blue and green.

    This issue helped inspire me to begin designing. I still clearly remember having this issue at 14 years old and falling in love with this cover =)
