The herringbone pattern is one of those ultimate, classic features in interior design - dating back centuries, it is often seen in older, European homes but has made a comeback in recent years & works equally as well in modern architecture.
It is timeless, classic & will never date - depending on how it is used it can feel modern & edgy too. Natural wood flooring or marble tiles laid in a herringbone pattern bring luxurious elegance, a simple white subway tile laid in a herringbone pattern instantly looks sophisticated & chic.
If used over large areas keep other elements in the space simple with clean lines & let the herringbone be the feature. Because it packs such a punch, it can be really effective when used in small doses like a kitchen splashback or feature wall/panel of tiling in a bathroom.
