i have a major, major weakness for stripes. i like them in my clothes, on my shoes, and on details in my home. so when i saw this project from orlando soria in california i was instantly hooked. orlando managed to make seriously budget-friendly linoleum tiles ($0.59 per sq. ft) look majorly luxe by cutting them in half and laying them in a striped pattern. hello, gorgeous. i love the black and white look and this it’s such a nice contrast to the red piece of furniture in the back. great work, orlando!
