If you attended the recent  Utah Valley Parade of Homes, you likely recognized a number of high-style design elements that were shared by many of the beautiful homes. We sure did. Among our favorites were the black-and-white patterns that punched up the floors of many bathrooms, laundry rooms and mudrooms. It’s like graphic wallpaper underfoot. Wow! If you’re hunting for a ground-level way to step up the style of your own spaces, the following examples from some of this year’s Parade participants offer plenty of ideas and inspiration.
