Chevron and herringbone.
I have a real thing for wood chevron and herringbone floors, especially the slightly-battered, wide-plank ones you see in pictures of perfect old French apartments.
All four of the above photos are from B&B Italia. I could move in there tomorrow, no problem.

What’s better than wood herringbone floors? Wood herringbone floors stained black. Via sfgirlbybay (I don’t know the original source, sorry—if you know, please tell me!).
Interior by Joseph Dirand Architecture. I really love the color variation in the chevron!
I saved the best (and most predictable!) room for last: Jenna Lyons’s bathroom, as seen in Domino. Interior by Levenson McDavid Architects. Ahhhhhh.
Chevron parquet by Atelier des Granges, who are welcome to come to my house anytime and install floors just like this.
