Geometry 101: Herringbone

Via
This is a "Dream With B" series on geometric patterns. Pamela of Mercantile Muse inspired me with her post yesterday. She got me to thinking how much I love geometric patterns.

I've always loved this pattern on brick pavers too.

Herringbone is beautiful inside or out and on any surface.

I love herringbone! It's one of my favorite patterns. I have a pair of herringbone pumps with patent leather toes that always make me strut when I wear them.

Beautiful images! Thanks for sharing.

I love herringbone patterned floors.

Hello dear Tammy,
The herring bone is such a classic pattern. It can be very modern looking or look old and anique.
I have seen a lot of pillows in that pattern, but that's about all, I enjoyed seeing the floors.
Hugs, Cindy

Those subway tiles on an angle--haven't seen much of that. I am so delighted that we chose to put our tiles on the floor and the backsplash (kitchen) at diagonal...makes such a difference. Fun post!

Love your herringbone pics. I love chevron fabric right now and it reminds me of herringbone. Hope all is well with you. Any bites on your house? I know you are dealing with so much...and I appreciate that you reached out to me when I was away from my blog. You are a dear, true friend. Let me know how you are when you have time!

I never thought about it before! See, this is why I need to see your blog and keep up with all of your design ideas. Because frankly, I just don't have the time to think about them! :0)

Can't go wrong with the classics.
Always good to visit, Tammy.
I'm currently taking a break from writing, but I now share my new page with my daughter so she's filling in a few days while I still visit my favorite neighbors.
Hope you're enjoying a beautiful spring.
Much love,
Marcia

I love the yellow pillows and cushions you have outside. They just get you in the mood to enjoy the weather.
