I think it’s fair to say that I think about tile a bit more than the average person. I also get very excited about tile trends, and one of my favorite recent developments in the world of tile is a new look that’s actually quite old: rectangular tiles laid in a herringbone pattern. I can’t get enough of it, especially in the bathroom.

Although herringbone tile is a look that can be very understated, there are also ways to go a bit wild with it. Case in point: this bathroom from Made a Mano, where switching some of the white tiles for colored ones makes for a dynamic, colorful space.

And yes, this is a kitchen, but this dark tile from Sarah Sherman Samuel is to die for, so we’re including it. The thin brick tile from Fireclay, laid in a herringbone pattern, provides the perfect finishing touch to a luxurious but understated kitchen.
