One of my FAVORITE trends we incorporated into our homes on Season 1 of Bargain Mansions is HANDS DOWN, herringbone tile. I seriously don’t think I have ever loved a tile pattern more than I love this one. Trust me, I do not discriminate against other tile patterns, BUT the herringbone pattern brings such a unique, modern vibe that others just don’t. I love that it is an old pattern that has become fresh and new again! It’s made quite the comeback and is the perfect way to add a little extra pizazz to my spaces. It’s funny because Dad actually doesn’t like the pattern because he says it feels like a flash back to the 60s to him. 😉
Lucky for us herringbone lovers, this pattern works in a variety of spaces.. kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms walls, and even entire floors if you wanna get wild. Here are a few shots showing how I incorporated this trendy pattern into our Bargain Mansions from Season 1!
This bathroom is from the stunning Charlotte House! We all know tile can get a little pricey, so it’s always an option to only install it on the bottom half of the walls! As you can see here, it still makes a huge impact on the space. Only going half way up the wall gives you the option to incorporate others color on the top half, creating a nice contrast.

Anddd if you have the budget, floor to ceiling herringbone is always a good idea. I am obsessed with how this bathroom from our Juniper house turned out. It’s probably one of my favorite bathrooms from the season.

For the kitchen and dining space in the Juniper House, our goal was to make the fireplace a statement piece in the room, so we went with the dramatic floor to ceiling herringbone option. I love how it turned out! To tie it all together, we added trim work in a herringbone pattern right above the windows next to the range. NOTE: Herringbone tile pairs amazingly with quartz!
Here are a few inspo examples from Instagram that I absolutely adore!
I’m curious.. are you all into this trend as much as I am? Let me know in the comments!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
