MAK­ING A COME­BACK

Home Beautiful - - {TRANSFORM} -

Re­cy­cled tim­ber boards are hav­ing a resur­gence in pop­u­lar­ity, while par­quetry floor­ing in a her­ring­bone pat­tern (such as this stained en­gi­neered oak, left) can adapt to all schemes. “Dark tim­ber floors can look fan­tas­tic – if you have white cab­i­netry and walls, the con­trast is a fea­ture in it­self,” says in­te­rior ar­chi­tect Sally Rhys-Jones – brush­box hard­wood (be­low right) is a case in point. “The Scan­di­na­vian trend is still com­ing through,” says Anne Plumb of Royal Oak Floors. “Greys, ash tones and whites are very pop­u­lar.” Ore­gon pine (be­low left) is a per­fect tim­ber for this trend.

“Some of the colours and fin­ishes avail­able with en­gi­neered boards would be hard to achieve with a solid tim­ber floor” ~ Anne Plumb, Royal Oak Floors
