{chevrons + chandeliers}

Attended the opening of a friend's new British gastropub on Monday evening and fell into a beautiful space with two floors, the first of which, along with an undeniably glamorous chandelier that glittered in the candlelight, also had a stunning original herringbone floor . . .


While the ones pictured are chevron, the effect is quite similar. Things that Inspire has a lovely post on the difference between the two . . .

Thank you for the mention! That was one of my favorite posts of mine...I think of it every time I see a chevron or herringbone floor.

Have a great day!
