If you’re worried about shoegazing guests at your next dinner party, this solution is sure to liven things up.

Not everyone is brave enough to paint their hardwood floors, but if you’re going to do it, go big, bright and bold as did homeowner Kristen Kauffman. Her knockout DIY dining room floor appears in the February 2011 issue of Better Homes & Gardens.

Balanced with white walls, wood furniture and sparse decor, the graphic pattern and unexpected color combination add a youthful, modern vibe to an otherwise traditional space.

I admire Kristen’s gutsy decorating decision. Have you ever made such a bold statement with paint?
