Accent patterns

I am considering some sort of accent in the middle of a kitchen floor. Any pictures, illustrations, etc. for ideas? One possibility (but not the only one) I was considering is a sort of pinwheel, but not the pinwheel pattern with a square in the middle and four tiles surrounding it. You know, like a kid's pinwheel.

Aw, c'mon, Richie, that third picher ain't got no steenkin' accent inna middle.

Them's some nice floors of yours, too, Tim.

Go to our Alumni Album forum, Zel, you may see some eye-dees in there, too.

Hi,
A compass Rose pattern for the floor would be neat-- in color or neutral shades of brown

pinwheel

Or this pinwheel design in a marble table could be adapted.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the welcome-- Good luck with the dolls, The stone tile display sounds amazing

Hi Marge:
I have attached a rose Compass image I will be doing for a client on Glass tiles for the floor. It's very colorful but can be color adjusted.

Showoff!! (that's MY job!! )

By the way-- I checked out your site. You have some beautiful work there!! I especially like the mural on the front page-- reminded me of the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. Brought back memories, too-- I had the opportunity years ago when I was in the navy to take a ride up the Amalphi Drive from Naples to Positano. One of the most beautiful places I've been to in the world.

Hey.
Did you drive down the Amalfi Coast? What a nightmare-- I sat on my hands the whole time- afraid to say anything to my husband, he was white as a ghost the whole trip - We actually were stuck between 2 giant buses and the bus driver had to get out and drive our car to get it out of the way. Talk about embarassing. It was glorious though-- one of my favorite trips--- Under the Tuscan Sun sure brought back memories

BTW- LOL- your tile technique is mosaic and mine is a baked on , transfer process

Well, I sure didn't think you cut that all in!! I know if I were to try something like that, MAYBE Bill Gates could afford it!! LOL

As for the Amalphi Drive, no-- we had a cab driver whose only controls in the car that got any use were the gas pedal, the sterring wheel, and the horn! It got the adrenaline pumping, though, that's for sure!! Especially going thru the horseshoe turns!!
