Perhaps in a couple of years, perhaps in twenty, regardless of precisely when, what I know for sure the only way to attain something is to first dare to dream. And once we have a dream, with the destination clear in our minds, we know where to travel, we know what to focus on. Such is the case with the house of my dreams.

I do not dream of a large home, I do not dream of a perfect home, but I do know that a house can become a home with time, careful planning and patience. But it all begins with a dream. And I dream of French oak chevron wood floors.

Epitomizing grand storied living quarters, this Parisian apartment reveals precisely the beauty that wood floors can lend to an entire space. Featured in Cote Masion, be sure to tour the entire home here, as you can see sometimes a rug grounds the space, but with such beautiful wood floors, sometimes a rug is not entirely necessary. And now you may be wondering, Where do such floors exist? Well, I suggest you begin here. Happy dreaming.

  1. French oak wooden floors are my dream underfoot. Where we are in France, with the slightly warmer climate, most ground floor rooms are tiled, however upstairs we have wooden floors in every room, worn smooth by two centuries of use, their imperfections on show for everyone to see, but that just adds to the character.

  2. Our home was completely tiled when we bought it–it had been the public showers before village got running water (which was in the 1970s!!!). Even the walls–though the first thing we did was to get rid of that. Last winter we took out the tile floors in the bedrooms and library and put in wood. I wanted chevron, but it’s far more work, hence far more expensive, unless you can do it yourself. Still, the wide planks look great and feel nice on bare feet. If you saw our place now, you would not believe what an aesthetic disaster it was when we bought it.

  3. One of the glories of a smaller house is you can use more expensive materials without breaking the bank. My family has a lovely open kitchen and tons of counter space, but as I contemplate putting new counters in, I would trade a few of them in to be able to put down the material I want.
