Classic Pick: Laying out bold tile underfoot never fails to make a statement. It’s also an easy way to add personality and pattern to clean-lined, mostly-white spaces. Drake General Store cofounder Carlo Collacci went with with a crisp black, white and grey tile on his principal bathroom floor to add a little punch to the otherwise subdued room. See more of his home on H&H TV.

Fresh Spin: Graphic tile doesn’t have to be limited to floors and kitchen backsplashes. Why not take your cue from TV producer Alix Jaffe’s L.A. home, and clad your stair risers in an array of striking black-and-white patterns? This works particularly well if your house has a Mediterranean flavor, like Alix’s contemporary Spanish-style residence.
