Archives For Tile

This rundown of high-design tiles from Portland Monthly will have your head spinning with ideas for bathroom and kitchen upgrades that go far beyond a basic backsplash or simple subway tiles. Ann Sacks’ beautiful and reflective Versailles tiles (above) would be perfect for adding depth to a smaller space. The possibilities are endless!

What’s more perfect than something that’s slightly imperfect?

That’s the underlying ethos behind the Japanese design principle of wabi-sabi. Dutch designer Marianne Smink took those concepts of simplicity, irregularity, and nature’s own imperfections to heart and translated the aesthetic in her line of tiles. Although the tiles are screen-printed, each one offers the unique feel of a hand-stamped or painted tile.

Perfectly imperfect. (Just the way we like it.)

medium_af1f940e-d432-46a0-866e-d3df179ea637If we were to purchase a property based solely on the bathrooms––it would definitely be this Mediterranean Malibu home.

Can you blame us? Who wouldn’t want to soak in tub surrounded by floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides? Is there any better way to enjoy a panoramic view of the Pacific ocean?

And, of course, coming in close second is the guest bathroom, complete with whimsical “under the sea” mosaic.

Bathrooms aside, however, this 3,000 square foot home also boasts video monitored security, surround sound, and a variety of green features including a photo-voltaic solar system.

On the market for $2,450,000, the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is listed by Eytan Levin with The Levin Group.
