DIY projects move indoors now in response to cooler weather, or perhaps to ready the house for the holidays. Unless you’re like me. My plans always evolve slowly and I take my time thinking things through.
Currently I’m mulling an expansion of our 25-square foot powder room into an accessible full bath by pushing out into the garage. One issue is what to do with the floor — the bath would be long and narrow. Bathroom floors are always a bit tricky but one possibility would be a trompe l’oeil geometric painted floor like this one.
Created by a young couple in the dining room of their home in Nairobi, the bold geometrics and optical illusion make it busy but it does move horizontally – which is key. Farrow & Ball paint fans might also want to opine on whether the colors in this floor – which look so familiar – could be Downpipe, Dauphin and Pointing. Do they look familiar to anyone else?
Not incidentally, this is the very same look as the elegant tile floor designer Steven Gambrel used in the Black and White Illusion Kitchen we showed recently.Cube illusion floors have a tradition in Europe where they were originally done with ceramic tiles. this floor also is very similar to a vinyl tile floor in my post on Updating White Kitchens, simply because it’s a classic.
