The visual stimulation at the Musee du Louvre is beyond description – it's simply in every direction one looks.   I couldn’t help but look down though.  The miles of floors are timeless and simply beautiful.  They are subtle patterns and layouts of hardwood or more graphic designs of stone.  All of these are inspirational either to reproduce literally on floors or even bath walls, or more figuratively through painting or stained stenciling.  And who doesn't love an elongated hexagon pattern!  (notice the Gothic arch at the stair!)
