Are parquet floors in style?

If you think of parquet floors, what do you think of?  Orange looking parquet floors from the 70’s and 80’s?  Parquet floors are actually making a comeback.  But as with any trend that makes a comeback, it comes back bigger & better and parquet floors are no exceptions.

What exactly is parquet you ask?

Parquet floors are a geometric mosaic of wood pieces used for decorating. In the 70’s and 80’s, the typical pattern of parquet flooring is shown below.  This floor has been well maintained.

The herringbone pattern in parquet is trending right now.

I have started making over our master bedroom.  It all started when we went from a queen size bed to a king size bed.   It’s a GREAT move, I would highly recommend it, but the challenge is is that nothing fits or goes together anymore.  We have lived in the room like that for over a year now.  The master bedroom tends to be the last room you do because noone sees it except your family of course.  I came across Lisa from Calling It Home and her One Room Challenge.  The One Room Challenge is where 175+ Designer/Bloggers get together and makeover one room in their house over a course of 6 weeks.  I picked our bedroom, that has, you guessed it has parquet floors.  The dated orange kind (lol).

What am I going to do with my dated orange parquet floors?  Keep posted to find out!!!
