    I just might. The girl had short hair and a giant farmhouse table, right? I'll take a look and get back to you.

    look under "photos" for ideas
    Oooh, how cool! I've never heard of it. I'll definitely consider that option. I do like the kitchen with the yellow/cream checkerboard that kindof pinwheels around the small tan squares...

    I seem to remember that years ago, when Martha Stewart was redoing her kitchen in her Westport, Connecticut house, she did this interesting lino tile floor, and the mag featured a few more ideas on how to lay tile in an interesting pattern. Unfortunately, I don't know what issue that was, but I'll look through my idea-binder, it might be in there. There is probably a decorating book of hers that features her kitchen, you could check the library or bookstore.

    I've seen this type of mosaic, inlay flooring in the UK, in posh interior magazines and my friend got it done in a sun/compass design - it was really expeensive. It uses linoleum or marmoleum, the real stuff stuff rather than the stuff that gets called lino these days. I couldn't find much online for you, try here http://www.themarmoleumstore.com/web...f?OpenDatabase

    tat marmoleum stuff is so cool...ive seen it on countless design shows on HGTV. one couple did their kitchen floors with it and put in a design of footprints to a dance step. like with one set of men's shoes and one set of women's shoes, and they even used their wedding shoes to make the shoeprints! it was really cool, but i think something like that is probably expensive. i think a chevron design would be cool, but i dont know exactly how you would do it!
