1. Carmeon Hamilton’s BoHo Bathroom

Carmeon Hamilton, embraced texture and pattern to transform this contemporary beige bathroom into a chic bohemian space. The Zellige Chabone Star and Cross tile features slight variations in size, surface texture and glazing, this and the mix of matte and glossy tile add to the bohemian aesthetic of the room. The handmade-look Riad White tile creates visual interest in the shower with the slight color variance between the tiles. The effect is a rich and vibrant black and white room. The pops of pink and orange in the decorative fans and the natural greenery add just enough color to keep the space fun and lively.

2. Revival 4106’s Charming Plaid Entryway

This 1915 house needed lots of TLC and the couple behind Revival 4106 knew the Cloth Black and White tile was just the thing to revitalize the entryway. The elevated checkerboard pattern of this black-and-white tile creates a simple color scheme that is punched up with the deep aqua stairs and walls of the entryway. The black wire light fixture reflects the thin lines of the tile.

3. Jessica Brigham’s Retro Glam Bathroom

When designer Jessica Brigham decided to restore her 1930s bungalow bathroom to its former glory, she knew The Tile Shop could provide the perfect classic tile pieces for her remodel. The white subway tile, bullnose and black pencil trim follow the original design of this classic home. The simple white and black tile allows the bold statement wallpaper to really shine. The Harlow with Vintage Patina Stone mosaic in the shower niche isn’t original to the house, but the design is reminiscent of Art Deco design, perfect for this glamorous retro space.

4. Angelia Gutherie’s Chic Condo Kitchen

The heavy, wood cabinets made this condo kitchen feel dark and constrictive, while the blue tile accent piece created visual clutter. With a modern marble slab design, Angelia Gutherie transformed this open-concept condo kitchen into a bright and airy space. The subtle grey and taupe veining in the Calacata Evora Honed marble creates a wonderful sense of movement and light visual texture that provides the perfect background to the open shelving display. The large-format tiles require fewer grout lines, creating a sleek cohesive and expansive look.

5. The Birds Do Thus’ Classic Marble Bathroom

Amanda Yong of The Birds Do Thus renovated her bathroom to fit the aesthetic of her 1912 home. The Ashford Carrara marble with its bold grey-blue coloring creates gorgeous movement that straddles the line between old and new. The shower fixtures and hardware on the door add to the authenticity of the early 20th-century home. The effect is one of timeless luxury.

6. Jennifer Janeway Designs Transitional Kitchen

Jennifer Janeway Designs gave this kitchen a bright and airy update with streamlined white cabinetry and the beautiful Volakas Large Herringbone marble backsplash. The white with blue-grey veining in the marble creates a visual bridge between the cabinets and the blue of the kitchen island. The tile’s herringbone shape and striking veining add a contemporary flare to this transitional kitchen.

7. Emerson Studios Bathroom

This zen bathroom remodel by Emerson Studios combines warm and cool neutrals. The wooden cabinets are warm and organic in contrast to the Chalk Grey RMB floor tile’s cool, concrete look. The circular globe light and arched mirrors work to soften this design–creating a ying to the yang of the floor geometric diamond shape.

8. DGK Design & Build’s Kitchen

This dated kitchen needed a modern facelift. DGK Design + Build used our most popular subway tile, Retro Lino, to create a classically timeless backsplash. By keeping the kitchen completely monochromatic, this space is easy to update with the simple addition of some colored accessories.
