Try a Graphic Pattern

The Big Idea
Make a statement right at your home's entrance by welcoming guests with a painted floor that's bold and geometric. It's a gutsy move, but small spaces like foyers or hallways can handle a large dose of pattern -- and even look larger with an expansive repeat. Plus, painting the floor is a clever way to add personality to a space that's often overlooked and under-decorated.

Notice the Details
Dark baseboards have long been a decorator's trick to help define a room and ground a bold color scheme. The ones in this entry, painted black to echo the graphic lines of the painted floor, fool the eye into thinking a border extends the room a few extra inches.
