Who Doesn’t Like A Good Tile Job…

Encaus6Encaus4

When creating a new tile presentation or re-doing an old one…why not GO ENCAUSTIC?

If you’re designing a room or entire house most consumers main objective is to create something that is timeless.  This is virtually impossible, the only way you can possibly create timelessness is with pure white…but even with that color choice…tile and design sizes change through the decades.

For instance what you like now, might not be what you would like or fashionable 10 years from now.  Plus, the colorways that are currently strong, will not be the same tones desired 10 to 15 years from now.

Take green for example…90’s it was Sage Green, 2000’s it was Chartreuse Green’s, and now for 2010’s it Emerald Green.

So trying to stay classic and clean?  Stay neutral!

Though beige years are really “so last decade”, we are now currently enthralled with the gray tones.  Or dare I say “gray-eige”, for those who still embrace, tans and beige tones!

TILE ON!

Fusion of eclectic styling…old, new, modern and antiqued…fused into one fabulous interior presentation.

Adding what I feel is the most mandatory aspect of all in living spaces and that is “HYAGE”, pronounced hoo-ga…which is the Danish phrase for LIVING SIMPLY. Which entails, creating an incredibly warm and welcoming living space.

Bad Closet Doors to Bad Ass Closet Doors…

Closet Doors

This is such a great idea!  For those that have accordion doors…and can’t update to a barn door or just have no desire. This is such a FABULOUS idea!

Cover the doors in fabric and edge with a nail head trim. Genius!

This is a brand new Phillip Jeffries wallpaper…made with a very thin layer of wood and framed with silver foil! Asolutely stunning in person.  This is a perfect alternative to those who would like an intresting ceiling treatment but do not have the budget for major millwork.

By placing this wallpaper on the ceiling or the walls it instantly elivates the room’s level of sophistacation and presense!
