Starburst Hex Pattern – Utah

We recently posted a bathroom to social media from Andrea West Design in Utah. The response was fantastic, as it should be! The design team took a cool kid’s bathroom that was tiny and cramped and turned it into a large open layout. What really got everyone’s attention was the highlight of the bathroom, the unique inlaid ceiling design.

Check out the before pictures above. It’s hard to imagine that this was even the same bathroom. The vision to design and execute this space is quite incredible. The new jack and jack space, for 2 boys, incorporated their love of color and pattern and natural wood tones.

 

Andrea West Design took our Starburst pattern and used in the most creative of ways. This handmade cement tile can be laid in a myriad of pattern combinations, but what was chosen fits the linear space perfectly.

The fully enclosed space contains both the shower and the beautiful freestanding bathtub. The cement tile completely surrounds the tub and is flanked by glossy, linear ceramic tile. The use of the two different materials allows the patterned cement tile to stand out as a highlighted design feature.

The pretty bathroom vanity transitions perfectly into the cool colors and tones of the adjoining kid’s bedroom. We love how the blues used in both spaces tie the rooms together. Even the live edge wood door is eye catching!

All in all, an amazing job by Andrea West Design. It’s easy to see why the bathroom is a social media favorite!

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.
