repair or chic-up your wood floors with tiles

What do you do when you’ve got a parquet or hardwood floor with patches that are broken or in generally terrible repair? We found a surprising solution via artist Mathias Kiss’ installation Banquise:  replace wood rectangles or slats with tile.

You don’t have to just stick with rectangles. Paola Navone made a fabulous patch using smallish polygons, so beautiful, you might want to plan to do this.

We’ve found a trove on Elmo Yang’s Pinterest.

    Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored at work so I
    decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.

    I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a
    look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded
    on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..

    Anyways, amazing site!

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you
    are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

    This is the best bit of spam we’ve seen.
