I love lots and lots of things about mid-century architecture and décor, but one thing I’m most anxious to have added to our house is terrazzo flooring. Have you ever seen how it’s actually made? I love watching the process. Ever since spotting it in some of my favorite homes (both old and new), I’ve had this vision of laying terrazzo flooring in place of the carpet on our first floor in the dining and living rooms. Matching the existing hardwood floors in our kitchen and entryway would probably be a nightmare, so I love the idea of butting new terrazzo right up against the wood to create contrast and add more mid-century flair.
The only problem? Budget, of course. We’re currently allocating most of our home décor budget to outdoor projects, so my dream of terrazzo flooring isn’t something that will come to life for many, many years. Oh, well! At least I can satisfy my lust for terrazzo texture with fun little craft projects, like my new DIY Clay Faux Terrazzo Ring Dishes. Turns out that terrazzo is a really simple pattern to recreate with paint, and I’m passing along all of my secrets in my latest tutorial for Hunker.
