TILE ENVY:: MONOCHROMATIC SERIES

MONOCHROMATIC TILE CHAT

Hey there,  Nicole here… resident tile guru! 

This week we are diving into monochromatic spaces. A look at the simplistic yet stunning impact a bit of  tone on tone action can achieve.  Hold on to your seats, because things are about to get beautiful!

Have you ever seen a kitchen and your eyes went straight to the backsplash,  walked into a small powder room and awed at the patterned floor, or stepped into a shower that was immersed in natural stone. That my friends is what I like to call tile heaven.

In our recent outdoor kitchen project, we used this glass mosaic backsplash which has plenty of unique characteristics. The shade and surface texture of the backsplash helps each piece to  truly stand out and offers plenty of visual interest with its color variation and pattern play.

Handpainted terra-cotta tile will aways hold a special place in my heart. Dressing up stair risers with these ornate details  in an array of blues is a great way to pull color and fun  throughout the space.

The mixture of elements in these space makes it nothing less than magical. Incorporating cement tile, ceramic, and metals. Yes Please!

This installation of  large format tile and using  the natural edge to finish off the design gives an organic feel to the space and high visual impact. 

Quality tile is a true investment in your home and allows a curated space to come together. Its all in the details and these monochromatic gems will remain classic, and are versatile enough to incorporate pops of color when the time is right! 

Till next time,
