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.

The huge outdoor bar is perfect for entertaining guests and maximizing full value of time spent in the California sun. The orange chairs from Bend Goods add a cool pop of color.

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.

Patchwork Random – Fairfax, VA

Jordan Design-Build Group is a full-service residential design-build firm serving the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. For a recent remodel project a client wanted to go big and bold in the kitchen whilst maintaining an eclectic style. Using our Patchwork Random selection of colorful cement tiles, they created a ceiling-high backsplash that acts as the focal point of the room.

A custom banquette filled with colorful pillows coordinates with the backsplash and anchors the light-filled corner of the kitchen, creating a cozy breakfast nook. They also installed a richly patterned pressed tin ceiling to add vintage flair to an often overlooked part of a room. Eye-catching black trim makes the windows pop and completes this bold kitchen makeover.

Our patchwork patterns are a random selection of handmade cement tiles that are shuffled at the factory. Patchwork Random is a stock item and ships out immediately. Patchwork is also available in several color dominant blends – red, blue, green and yellow. 4″ x 4″ and rectangular options are also available.

Bordeaux – St. Louis Park, MN

Post World War II homes are not necessarily known for their open layouts. Crush Collective, designers based in Minneapolis, MN, took on this 1950’s-era kitchen design challenge. The goal was to accommodate a family four, while incorporating a chef’s kitchen and creating a clean, simple room filled with style.

Working closely with the clients, the designers came up with thoughtful and creative design solutions. Everything in the kitchen needed to have a purpose and place, and at the same time had to reflect the artful nature of the client.

Our Bordeaux pattern was chosen to create visual interest as a backsplash over the stove and behind the hood. The handmade cement tile is a showstopper and gives the space instant personality. After looking at these pictures, we think you’ll agree!

The chalkboard for family notes and inspirations, bold light fixtures and quartzite counters all add to the overall beauty of the space and help to make the cement tile pop.

If you are in Minnesota reach out to Crush Collective for an amazing space of your own.

Agadir Pattern – Alpine, Utah

We have been fortunate that our cement tiles have been featured several times recently on Houzz. Our in stock Agadir cement tile looks amazing in this project by Ashley Winn Design in Alpine, Utah.

The handmade cement tile floor is the focal point of a multi-functional laundry/craft room combination. The combined spaces allow for quality family time, homework and laundry all in one charming place.

The bright barn door, pastel cabinets and green stools all add an inviting feeling to the space. With additional features like rolling baskets and a wash sink it really is a functional work and play space.

House Crashers – DIY Network

Who doesn’t love a good episode of House Crashers!

I know we do.

The hugely popular series, on the DIY Network, follows host Josh Temple as he tries to find a random customer at a home improvement store that will agree to take him to his/her house to help with a home project. After finding a “troubled” area of the home, Josh surprises the individual by agreeing to do a full remodel of the space. The project is then completed in a few short days with the help of the homeowner and friends.

We are thrilled that the show used our Bouquet II pattern in an episode of this season’s show. The episode is titled “Arched Mediterranean Kitchen” (Season 11, Episode 2) and follows a couple as they get a complete kitchen renovation. Our handmade cement tile is used on the kitchen backsplash to create a unique centerpiece for the space. The Bouquet cement tile pattern blends in perfectly with the new kitchen’s Mediterranean theme.

Check out the clip below or tune in to DIY for the whole episode.

Tulum Pattern – Amber Thrane

We just love the home of Amber Thrane, co-owner of Dulcet Creative – a company that focuses on styling, photography, branding and creative direction.

The eclectic California home, as featured on Glitter Guide, is full of charming features and inexpensive finds that are pulled together to create a cohesive, cozy home. Amber and her husband have done an amazing job by doing most renovations themselves and truly making their remodel a personal experience. If they can’t find what they love, they usually end up creating it!

We love the use of our in stock Tulum cement tile pattern in the atrium. It is a bright, airy space and the striking black and white tile, an old fireplace, plus a few personal touches and some greenery make it an ideal place to hang out!

One Room Challenge – Christine Dovey

The One Room Challenge is a yearly room makeover event where 20 home-design bloggers are challenged to make over a space and show the process over six weeks. The challenge is a great event to keep an eye on as it leads to many interesting design and style ideas in varied spaces of the home.

In the most recent Challenge, designer Christine Dovey based in Oakville, Ontario used our Tulum tile pattern as part of her amazing bathroom remodel. The old bathroom was gutted and new tile, paint and fixtures completely transformed the space. I think you’ll find the reveal just as beautiful as we do…and all in 6 weeks!
