Staff Picks: Julie's favorite things
We asked each of our in-house designers to select their top five favorites from the showroom. Julie's picks feature transitional patterns with soft pops of glam.
This triangular backsplash tile is equal parts funky & sophisticated. The metal inlay adds a touch of glam to an otherwise casual color pallet, and the pattern is unlike anything else we have seen. Dramatic but not trendy, this is a timelessly chic mosaic that works perfectly in a small space, like a coffee bar, butlers pantry, or wine room.
Hexagon shaped tiles have been around forever, but we've never seen one quite like this. Lace-like glass inlay between the marble hexagons converts a basic geometric pattern into one that is organic, delicate, and truly unique.
We imported this tile directly from Spain after falling in love with it a a tile expo. The pattern is inspired by French parquetry, making it a beautiful flooring selection for areas that you want to be both decorative and highly durable, such as foyers, dining rooms, and outdoor living spaces.
In a master bathroom, there is nothing more classic than grey & white marble. This geometric pattern of interlocking squares is a contemporary alternative to traditional twelve-by-twelve square tiles. Only the grey inlay has a glossy polished finish, which gives this floor a subtle sparkle when the light hits is just right.
Take a deep breath; this fresh, upscale wall tile oozes Zen. The texture is perfectly imperfect, with a gently undulating surface and softly crackled glazing. Although these tiles could have been installed in the same direction to create a traditional "mermaid scale" pattern, we love that the installers here created a much more interesting design by alternating the orientations of each scallop-shaped piece. And since these tiles are made of 62% recycled materials, you can feel good knowing they're both beautiful & sustainable.
