Melanie Stephens: Our Cluny tile in black and white has been flying off the shelves all year. We have also had major orders for Santander with a diagonal pattern and Badajoz with a large cross pattern, both also in black and white.
MS: Graphic patterns rendered in black and white.
MS: I am very partial to the Cluny in black and white, especially in the home designed by Deirdre Doherty and featured in House Beautiful. It's crisp, classic and anything but static.
MS: If they like the two-tone effect in black and white or silver and white, they really can't go wrong for mass appeal. However, a great many homeowners and designers have integrated colorful patterns to tremendous effect.
Look through the installation photos to get a sense of what would go best in your home and what matches your taste. My philosophy is: If you love it, then the type of person who will likely buy your home will love it too.
MS: The most popular layouts are wall-to-wall with or without a perimeter border.
MS: Use some of the same colors in the floor design as in the rest of the room. For example, if you really like the St. Tropez design in white, mustard, blue and gray, pick up one or two of those colors on the wall, curtains, fixtures, etc. Almost any color schedule can look right as long as it looks intentional.
Some people start with the laundry room and then work their way to more public spaces.
