Tile designer Vicki Morrow lined the countertops in this kitchen with her own, handmade ceramics. You could, of course, use purchased handmade ceramics – or even off-the-shelf squares from your local big-box store.
To give the design in this newly remodeled bathroom a touch of dimension and pizzaz, designers created an accent wall of decorative tile. The tile was purchased from Wayfair and is called "Illica" ceramic.
Ceramic tiles in beautiful ocean and sky blues bring soothing colors to this space in addition to custom teak border and shelving above the soaking tub, open glass shower, recessed lighting, travertine floors, a double vanity with vessel sinks, integrated shelving for storage, and a wall hung toilet.
To make the terrace level bath feel less like an 80s afterthought, Georgia designer Beth Johnson split the cavernous space into two smaller bathrooms for guests to use at the lake house. Because it is a second home for the family, she employed cost-saving steps, like installing ceramic tile that looks like Carrera marble, that didn’t sacrifice style.The result is a new transitional style that is more in line with today.
Walnut cabinets and handmade, glazed ceramic tiles restore period authenticity to this Pacific Palisades Estate. The tile runs up the wall to create a backsplash over the sink and vanity. Built in shelving provides easy and organized towel storage beside the bathtub.
Artwork by Miggie Wong and Renae Barnard adds interest to the vanity area in the master bathroom. Neutral ceramic tile covers the floor and half the wall creating a backsplash over the countertop. Walnut cabinetry adds beautiful warmth to the calming tones of the design.
A classic backsplash accent may not seem as sexy as many of today’s flashy glass and metal choices, but it’s a good bet for enduring beauty. This backsplash created by Tenhulzen Residential features glazed 3” x 6” ceramic tiles with an inset made of handmade tiles from Pratt & Larson, surrounded by subtle 2” x 2” glass squares. “The trick with accent features is to coordinate them with the look you intend for your entire space,” says owner Mike Tenhulzen. “You want to add intrigue without being too bold.”
