Magnificent Millwork & Mudroom

Plenty of traditional design elements fall from favor. Herringbone pattern flooring, for example, is having a moment across design styles. It’s a configuration which may be traced back to ancient Egyptian jewelry as well as Roman Empire roadways.

    I wish I knew how to remove the pop up ads that cover up the left quarter of your lovely pics and comments. They pop up every day.

      I’m so frustrated with them, and it’s not the fault of the ad company – it is a Google style issue they are working to resolve. Such a disaster! I hope it will be gone soon.
