Inspiration for a large timeless multicolored floor foyer remodel in Minneapolis with beige walls

Minnesota Private ResidenceTraditional Entry, Minneapolis

Perched on wooded hilltop, this historical estate home was thoughtfully restored and expanded, addressing the modern needs of a large family and incorporating the unique style of its owners. The design is teeming with custom details including a porte cochère and fox head rain spouts, providing references to the historical narrative of the site’s long history.

    The black tile will show up any light dust or marks and the reverse for the white tile. I would use a silver grey grout and that would be a happy medium between black and white. Hope this helps!

    I've had customers do this same exact pattern in the past - if you want minimal grout lines, then you need to purchase rectified porcelain tile. Good luck! www.sognaretile.com

    tohsalem - yes I have considered painting my wood floors in this pattern, it the time that has me putting it off. How has the finish held up for you? It would be in a high traffic zone in my house so not sure about the maintenance.

    I painted a floor in our last home. I used a porch and floor paint and then poly over it. The poly changed the color some but it was fine with the colors I used. It held up really well.

    is that also what you used on the ceiling ? If so, did you lighten it by 50 % so that it didn't seem darker than the trim, or did you change to a flat ?

    Thank you for your interest in our project. The staircase is original to the home, but the adjacent floors after this area are stained with Woodcraft Dark Mission Dye (2 coats) and Dura Seal Spice Brown (1 coat). The handrail was done in similar stain colors, but coats maybe vary since it was original to home.

          Hallways and StaircasesThis elegant staircase proves that a simple tone-on-tone look can be both quietly sophisticated and homey, using off-white walls broken up with white trim (making each doorway and piece of molding a feature).The banister is a shapely highlight thanks to just a little black paint, like a sharp black belt on a summery outfit.

          Stair StyleAlthough the tips above are not enough to teach you how to build a stair (that's one of the most complicated things a carpenter does), they will help you understand how and why they are laid out the way the are. Now let's talk about the way stairs look. After all, there is beauty in the function of a staircase — a well-designed stair can be one of the most stunning forms in your house. A staircase has many parts, and since most are made of wood, one of the questions you'll face is whether to add a clear coat or paint it. Traditional stairs often have a combination of both. To paint or not to paint? My advice is to avoid paint on treads and banisters. These get the most wear, and paint shows wear more readily. If the treads have been painted before, or if you want that look, we've had good success with Fine Paints of Europe.

          3. Soft white. Pairing white with black creates a very elegant, Art Deco feel. Even with so much contrast, this look is still a blank canvas for adding any other color. To lessen the drama, choose a slightly-softer white. In this space, you see how the wall color is a bit more toned down as compared to the crisp white trim and doors. Paint pick: Pure White 7005 by Sherwin-Williams
