I tiled my living room floor with lenoleum for functional reasons and because I want to be surrounded by things I desire to see and think about. I chose 4 different colors of 1ft square tiles. I cut the tiles diagonally, making right triangles. I then cut those in half, making an assortment of sizes. I started tiling in the center of the room and worked my out. My apartment has many of the original details (such as crown molding, medalions, and stained glass) that were common in pre-war buildings, one of the reasons I chose to live here. By tiling the floor in this manner I’ve tried to shift the focus of someone entering my place back to these details.
