Sophistication in the hallway with xar161

Sophistication in the hallway with xar161

We are moving up a level in sophistication today with a linoleum product that does justice to the fine hallway that I have been using these last few weeks.

Created with Xara Designer 9, this is the sort of tile that would have been used mid-century although I have chosen to give it a ‘complete roll’ look rather than the look of individual tiles. A light design, it makes the hall look bigger, bolder and airer because small detail tiles tend to look, and add, an air of sophistication.

Some experimentation revealed that the tiles look best at the size shown rather than smaller which would probably be the case if they were individual floor tiles. At a smaller size you tend to lose the sophistication and the tiles blur into the background.

For the record I went down to the shop and bought two nice pictures to put on the wall, these are there simply for composition (and because I like them).
