Despite my embrace of cyberspace and online journalism, I remain a die-hard magazine devotee. So old school, I know. For certain kinds of coverage and information, magazines remain–for me at least–both indispensable–and also a million times more satisfying than blogs. (Honestly, I find reading blogs a huge drag if a necessary evil, so I truly appreciate your bothering to indulge me by perusing mine!)
Anyway, all that preamble to say: a love of magazines has its downside, especially when living with a husband who is similarly devoted to the print medium. Magazines tend to pile up and take over our not-so-large apartment. So every 6 months we have a collective hissy fit and spend like the entire weekend just weeding through them so we can have our lives (and our horizontal surfaces) back. This occurred last weekend.
Which is why I am so belatedly posting the above article form the March issue of Elle Deco UK! A really cute idea: rather than stick to one variety of tile, especially for the floor of a small room like a closet, loo, or even a foyer, choose a few different types and make an animated patchwork instead! Great idea if you are wont to troll vintage shops and tile sample sales–where you can often buy only a few square feet of any given design. Love!
