Staff Picks: Tammy's favorite things

Everyone, meet Tammy! As our outside sales representative, she travels throughout the triad to serve local interior design & architectural firms, builders, & tile dealers. To help you get to know her a bit better, we asked her to share her favorite tiles from our showroom. Her choices are a reflection of her creativity, featuring organic textures, whimsical motifs, & serene colors.

The mossy green hue of this nature-inspired zellige tile evokes feelings of tranquility and calmness. Although it is factory-made and quite affordable, this tile is quite convincingly made to look handmade. It boasts a unique relief design & an organic, textured glaze which adds depth & richness to any space. Simultaneously sophisticated and contemporary, this tile is perfect for those who appreciate the artistry, craftsmanship, and the uniqueness of artisanal products.

Check out this stunning marble mosaic, which beautifully combines a neutral color scheme with a playful circular pattern. The versatility of the traditional taupe and white hues allows it to shine in a variety of settings, while the mid-century modern motifs add a touch of whimsy and creativity. It pairs perfectly with the natural finishes and streamlined design elements of transitional decor.

We're all enamored with this one. The white-washed wood look adds a warm and natural touch to any space, creating a cozy and welcoming atmosphere, while the oh-so-unexpected cherry blossom design infuses the space with beauty, grace, & femininity. The combination of these elements creates a truly unique and visually interesting tile, perfect for those who value creativity and uniqueness in their home decor. Plus, the practicality of porcelain tile – known for its durability & low maintenance – makes this a smart choice for residential and commercial projects alike.

Looking at this soothing shade of blue, associated with calmness & serenity, we can't help but smile. The shape of this lovely yet highly unusual wall tile is reminiscent of many different motifs, including rolling hills, ocean waves, or seating in a stadium. We love it, yet we can't quite put our finger on where we have seen it before. Therefore, we feel confident that this tile is the opposite of trendy it has major staying power!

Another very unique selection by Tammy: Check out this stunning blue & white encaustic cement tile! It sparkles softly thanks to petite flecks of luxurious mother-of-pearl, which are baked right into the blue sections of cement. With a bold pattern of concentric squares that makes us think of pinecones or fish bones, this tile is the perfect blend of natural and striking. And it looks so chic paired with modern fixtures and a sleek floating vanity.

We asked for five favorites but Tammy, ever the overachiever, provided six! So last but certainly not least, we have one more for you: A bold & contemporary tile featuring contrasting shades of black, white, grey, & beige. These are also encaustic cement, which gives it that rich matte finish. Installed in a herringbone pattern for maximum drama, this creates an eye-catching, one-of-a-kind look that is sure to garner constant compliments.
