A rustic cottage living room with a white checkered painted floor.

Opt for a Classic Checkerboard

The Big Idea
Try a variation on an old favorite by choosing a painted floor that's both fresh and rooted in tradition. Update the classic checkerboard pattern with overscale diamonds and an unexpected color combination. The rustic simplicity of the floor has a sophisticated look that’s surprisingly modern.

Notice the Details
Pieces of furniture with clean lines and simple shapes don't compete with the floor. Basic linen and cotton fabrics in soft, muted shades blend into the background, and a minimal approach to accessories draws all eyes to the pattern.
