Located in the original Detroit Fire Department Headquarters, a circa-1929 Neoclassical building, the Detroit Foundation Hotel opened in 2017. Authentic firehouse features, such as the iconic red arched doors where the fire engines would pass, have been maintained. Original glazed brick tiles seamlessly mesh with modern lighting fixtures by Incite Design.
On HGTV's "Color Splash," David Bromstad transformed this once lifeless backyard into a cozy outdoor getaway. The deck was replaced with lush grass and the tall fence was traded for a shorter wall, which does double duty as a bench. Privacy is maintained with living walls of tropical plants. Three glazed ceramic cubes create a unique table while weather-resistant fabrics add lively pops of red, orange, lime green and turquoise.
Put a more elegant spin on basic desserts with a tiered donut pyramid. Pick up powdered or glazed donuts from the supermarket, stack two hatboxes that range in diameter on top of each other, then stack the donuts around the outside of the bottom hatbox, around the outside of the top hatbox and then stack a few on top of it.
Hill Country Apothecary is a compounding pharmacy in Lakeway, TX. It features a central compounding lab which is glazed to allow for patrons to view their prescriptions as they are crafted by hand on-site. The lab, which includes all the latest technology, was created as a vignette inside the building. Indoor air and light quality were designed to take advantage of simple, sustainable and natural materials resulting in clean spaces to serve and be served in.
The light-washed ceilings and pale gray-aqua walls bounce the abundant daylight off the modern glazing. Concealed foam insulation in the floors and ceiling contribute to the home’s negative 22 HERS index.
This country dining room includes high ceilings broken up by pretty wood beams. The furniture is friendly and casual; the chairs' faint blue glaze brings in the color of the curtains in an adjacent room.
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.”
The sink was left in its picturesque spot, centered in front of the windows. But a cheery graphic shade was added, as well as new window glazing and hardware that would complement the room's Tudor character.
Glazed, tempered glass countertops can offer an almost ethereal, light feeling in a kitchen where the countertop is usually a solid mass. As a trend, they’ve become more popular recently, but as lovely as these gleaming glass-tops are, they come with a hefty price tag: some can go as high as $300 a square foot. An equally cool-looking and more eco-friendly alternative is 3form’s Chroma Countertops, which come in a variety of colors and almost seem to be lit from within.
A subtle glazing enhances the visual appeal of the creamy white, beaded cabinet doors in this elegant kitchen. White ice granite slab backsplashes and countertops brighten the color palette of pale creams and whites, adding drama and textural interest.
