8 Rooms with Nature-Green Floors

When the Remodelista editors visited Esprit founder Susie Tompkins Buell at her SF flat (see A Home at the Top of the World, San Francisco Edition), they learned about her affinity for the color green. “My mother loved nature and said, ‘Never put anything on the floor that’s a color not found in nature,” Tompkins says. Inspired by these words of wisdom, the editors went in search of kitchens reflecting the “colors found in nature” philosophy. Here are eight spaces with hard-wearing green floors in materials ranging from Marmoleum to painted wood to industrial rubber.

had not really thought about it before but after seeing these I do prefer green floor rather than brown I wonder if it is because I associate the green on the gound with being grass or grass like - anyway thank you.
