10 Tiled Spaces You’ll Love

When renovating a kitchen or bathroom, it’s likely you’ll incorporate tiles as a key design element — or at least you should. Tiles add texture and personality, elevating any space. We tracked down the top tiled kitchens and bathrooms in our portfolio to give you a glimpse at how something as simple as tile can transform the design.

A welcomed spin on an all-white kitchen, this space introduces shades of gray to break up the monotony while maintaining a simple color scheme. On the island and countertops, a solid slab of marble adds a nod of sophistication while the tile sizes and color variations contribute a playful element.

The use of tile and muted colorways in the nearby butler’s pantry creates a significant impact in a small space. Larger, antiqued mirror tiles were chosen for the backsplash, and the solid marble countertop offer contrast in texture and pattern. Add a cocktail, and the space is complete.

Subway tiles are a go-to design choice for simple, sophisticated spaces. In this particular bathroom, a vertical line of smaller, grey and white glass tiles offers a dash of contemporary flair without interrupting the clean, minimalist design.

No stranger to the incorporation of color, Beth added touches of teal to this serene space to instantly modernize the design. Against a neutral backdrop, teal accents pack a colorful punch.

An approachable kitchen design showcases contemporary and traditional styles. Here, glossy subway tiles stand out. With a visible grout, they are a noticeable element that fit seamlessly into the overall design.

The application of marble tile makes this bathroom unique, and the differing patterns flow effortlessly. Within the black-and-white scheme, it’s the basketweave flooring that is the most striking.

Far from boring, this backsplash makes a bold statement. The color story is cool and unexpected, and it is a welcomed departure from all-white. If you are a lover of color, consider pairing various shades of your favorite color in your place.

A refreshing twist on all-white, this kitchen combines modern design components, including herringbone tiles, contemporary chairs, and globe lights. Hints of color that range from white to gray are found in the small, stylish tiles.

Featured Topic: Floor Plan Before & Afters

Here is a roundup of some of our favorite renovation projects! Enjoy!

Re-configuring the majority of the second floor of this historic Victorian home allowed us to open up several walls to accommodate a great master suite. The before pictures show existing closets that were removed to open the space and also highlights the dramatic transformation in aesthetic design!  

This transformation is so dramatic, it is very hard to tell it is even the same space! By removing walls and opening the floor plan, we created space for a great family kitchen that could accommodate everyone in the family. We love this photo because it shows just how wonderful any space can become!

The last kitchen renovation is another shocking space; how is this the same home?! We loved working with our clients to recreate much of the downstairs floor plan. In this space, it was all about creating a cooks kitchen with a nice clean backdrop. Mission accomplished!

Last but not least, here is an extraordinary transformation from porch to sun room. Our client loved the layout of their home but felt like they were missing one space- a casual, sunny gathering space. The design challenge was to find a way to make the space feel like a natural part of the house –  not an afterthought. 


Featured Vendors: Mirth Studio

Mirth Studio has long been our radar for creating some of the most exquisite cement tiles on the market but we have to say we are extremely interested in their line of “peel and stick” flooring. The designs are so catchy, so cool- and the colors are just right, we wonder if this is the renaissance of vinyl flooring. We can see these being a great addition to a laundry room remodel or any small space looking for high impact design with little labor. Designed for a 4 year lifespan, these temporary tiles might be the perfect thing for some of our Airbnb clients looking for high impact design or some of our friends renting / leasing out their home!

March Newsletter- Spring Has Sprung

With a blink of an eye, winter frost has ceded to the early signs of spring. As we gratefully strip-back our interiors of the confines of winter – thick throw blankets, pine scented anything, and other cozy odds and ends that help define the winter season- we look for fresh inspiration that can inspire a new spring palette. This year, it is all about color, texture, and pattern!


Featured Topic: Springing Forward!

Spring is all about new beginnings, fresh growth, and the feeling that change is upon us. It’s time to renew interiors and create small but meaningful changes that help transport us to a new season. Here are some simple styling tricks that will help transition your home to welcome the start of spring!

This bright, delightful corner is brimming with fresh energy of spring. The combination of color is what really pulls this look together for us- the greens, yellows, and blues create such a cheerful composition!

Design done right– simple styling made possible by strong furniture selections like the teal sideboard, sculptural dining table, and oversize end chairs. The painting paired with matching lamps is all the look needs to complete the space!

We love the simple styling of this elegant bathroom. The custom built-ins provide an excellent, functional foundation for the space while the pops of greenery help fill the space with energy. The wallpaper is all this space needed to complete a truly custom, one-of-a kind atmosphere. Never underestimate the power of a print!

Nothing says the start of spring more than a bright, clean, well organized kitchen. If this photo doesn’t inspire you to give some of your most used spaces in your house a once over, we don’t know what will. This lucky client has a kitchen designed for their lifestyle so a tidy kitchen is always within reach!


Featured Vendors: Looking forward to High Point Market!

It’s that time of year again! We are looking forward to seeing new designs from some of our favorite vendors and getting to know new, up and coming brands. We’ve seen previews and are excited! Here’s one brand we are particularly excited to see debut at market:

The ADRIANA HOYOS COLLECTIONS have been admired for its modern appeal and traditional craftsmanship. Offering a retro-modernism design, the collections blend the use of natural materials and fine woods to enhance the ambiance of the contemporary 21st century home. Simplicity of detail, clean lines and the finest quality handmade finishes make Latin American designer Adriana Hoyos’ designs one-of-a-kind.

Sounds good to us!
