At Coverings 2021, we honored nine outstanding projects that demonstrated spectacular craftsmanship and creativity in the use of tile & stone. This week we’re putting the spotlight on the Residential Tile Design winner.
Residential Tile Design Winner
Bradshaw European Country
Old World Stone Imports Floor and Design
With homeowners hailing directly from Great Britain, The Bradshaw Classic European home calls for the charms of a European estate.
For the kitchen and dining floor we chose a white 2-inch hexagon with a black daisy chain border. We repeat this pattern upstairs in the shower floors and vanity backsplashes. You’ll also see a repeat in the Snow- White subway tile both in the kitchen backsplash and in the bathroom showers to slightly contemporize and soften the Old European look.
On the dining room fireplace wall, we installed Old English style Thin Brick, but painted it snow white to keep the focus on the natural wood floors and tile work.
On the upstairs bathroom floor, we laid cement tiles, creating a starburst pattern and a touch of “now.” In the master bathroom we installed Carrara Porcelain floors to create more sophistication. The subway tiles cover the steam shower ceiling to avoid issues from accumulated steam.
With a brick set look it is often a good idea to lay the ceiling in a diagonal direction or herringbone pattern to the wall to avoid a “T” pattern.
Do you have a recently completed project that features innovative design and installation of tile & stone? Consider entering it to the 2022 CID Awards – the submission portal will open this fall.
