The patterns on those floors are just spectacular... muted colors, yet beautifully shaped.

Simple and elegant! Looks almost grey though it's probably white. Grey is my new favorite color. Just painted my kitchen that color and I love it!

Seriously, you win the prize of Most Impeccable Eye. Every day I practically have to wipe drool off my desk. It's getting to be a problem.
