The slate is from Thorntree in Houston. They have many, many colors and types to choose from.

Can you provide additional details regarding the slate floor? - This floor looks very close to the entry way flooring in my 1932 Tudor Revival home. I have always wanted to add the same flooring to my back hallway. Can you provide the supplier name, name of slate company, and color scheme? Was the slate pieced together on site or was it on a grid? At details would be helpful. Thank you.

I found those old doors at the Dallas home and gift market a few years ago. It was a temporary stall in the Finds section. It think you could find something like them at antique shows or fairs or at places that sell slavaged architectural products.

I am attaching more pictures - these are of the entry way where we will be replacing the marble/granite with travertine. 1st photo is facing door to the right off hallway
2nd photo is facing door
3rd photo is to the left of the entry - a hallway leading to a 1/2 bath and laundry room
entry way is about 14' x 14'
how do you think this would all look in the diagonal pattern?
Thank you

I'm sorry, but this is just a little too confusing from these pics to give you some good advice.

Let me see if I have this straight. You want to take up the entry way and put travertine there. You want to take up the travertine in the hallway and the carpet in the opposite hallway and put in new travertine there too. You have tumbled travertine in some adjoining rooms off the carpeted hallway laid in a brick pattern now. Is that correct?

It would really be much better if I could see a floor plan with approximate dimensions of these spaces and the flooring type/pattern you have in there now. It's important to see where each space is in relation to the others.

I've written a blog post about flooring in open plan houses, perhaps that might help you be able to make some decisions.

After you read that, perhaps you can e-mail me your floor plan at I have a quick E-consult type of service, "Designed in a Click!", that I offer on my website here>>>

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to Design Underfoot: Versailles Pattern Floors
For a dramatic look, consider multi-colored honed slate. The colors and patterns within the stone become more pronounced when the surface is smooth. This blue, gray and yellow slate provides the pattern and color palette for this traditional home. Stone and Pewter Accents has a similar tile called Shiba.
