Fixer Upper – All-American Farmhouse

We were so excited for our tile to be a part of this truly special episode of HGTV’s Fixer Upper.

Chip and Joanna Gaines worked with TJ, a US Marine veteran, and his girlfriend Stephanie to help build their dream home. The building was originally a barn that was previously converted into a house. Joanna did a fantastic job and stayed true to the traditional farmhouse style that TJ and Stephanie loved while balancing modern elements.

Our Preston cement tile pattern was used for the floor in a creative space that combined a laundry room with a home office. This room showcased Joanna’s design expertise by combining the two essential rooms in a limited space.

The colors on this handmade cement tile fit perfectly with the neutral color palette that was used throughout the entire home. The plaid look from this tile catches the eye and adds just enough flare without disrupting the overall aesthetics of the room.

The large French door makes the space feel open and allows the natural light to shine on the desk and folding table.  It’s great to imagine that TJ and Stephanie can take a quick break from laundry or work just by turning around, where they get to enjoy the views of the beautiful pastures surrounding their home.  We love that this cozy home still manages to make it feel like you are outdoors.

The episode ended with the perfect home for TJ and Stephanie, but marked the beginning of the next chapter of their lives.  Congratulations to them both on their engagement!

We miss seeing Chip and Joanna on their hit show every week but we look forward to seeing Joanna’s design process for this episode on their spin-off series, Fixer Upper: Behind the Design.  It’s always fascinating to see a master work their craft.  The episodes air on HGTV or can be viewed online.

Schmauder Group – Alexandria, VA

We love this industrial bathroom remodel that was beautifully designed by Schmauder Group, located in Alexandria, VA. They believe in a “true client partnership” where they work in a close collaboration with their clients. It definitely seems to work and this bathroom is proof!

In this all white space, there is a double vanity that parallels the shower, only to be separated by a stark black partition. Black fixtures and exposed black pipes, a key element for industrial designs, contrast with the white subway tile.

To bring this bathroom together, Schmauder Group chose to use our in stock Bristol cement tile pattern on the floor. The contrasting elements throughout the bathroom works nicely with our handmade black and white cement tile, making it stand out to become the center of attention.

We also love the small things in this project that make it work such as the use of circles throughout the entire space, the decision to use matte black finishes for the fixtures and the three different shaped tiles that are used. They even used a tv stand for the vanity!

Wherever you look, there is always something to catch your eye in this visually stunning bathroom.

Sunset Magazine – Home Makeover

The April 2018 issue of Sunset Magazine features a gorgeous remodel of an outdated ranch home for two globetrotting owners.

The home was designed by a group of 10 designers, each taking a room and creating designs based on the travels experiences of the owners. The rooms all have a unique feel, but each one is visually stunning in their design.

The pool bar of the home in Sonoma, California was exquisitely designed by Julia Katrine Designs. We are excited that our in stock Harper III handmade cement tile pattern was used to add a cool retro pattern and visual excitement to the front of the bar.

Little Women LA: Terra’s Big House

The TV drama of a full home remodel may be high, but the results from the kitchen reveal on Little Women LA: Terra’s Big House on Lifetime are stunning!

During the season, Terra and her husband Joe, embark on a huge renovation to make their home Little People friendly. But with a long wish list and tiny budget, designers Stephanie and Cory from Covet Living Interiors are challenged to redo the guesthouse before being hired to work on the main house. Although there were many challenges, we think they did an amazing job.

Our handmade Fountaine Antique cement tile pattern was used to add visual interest, and some texture, to the mostly white kitchen. The 2 color pattern works great with the stainless steel appliances and ties the whole space together.
