A Step Inside: Timber Trails’ Varsity Blues

Get ready to take a step inside Varsity Blues – one of the recent projects completed by Timber Trails Development Company. Join Julie Howard, Timber Trails’ lead designer, as she walks through the beautiful home while sharing her inspiration and design choices behind each space. Featuring charming pops of pattern and lovely blue hues throughout, it’s truly one-of-a-kind.

Family Room

As Julie explained, our Laura Ashley Wicker Sea Spray tile was the inspiration for the home’s entire color palette. We love the way it ties this family room together as a timeless focal point.


Offering the atmosphere of a whimsical English cottage, this kitchen is both classic and cozy. The rich blue cabinetry makes an eye-catching statement, while the handmade-look Retro Lino backsplash creates balance and adds soft, artisanal character.

Laundry Room

It’s all in the details! Using the Urban Pearl Pav and Urban White Pav tiles, Julie created a custom floor pattern in the laundry room. By placing the tiles in a traditional checkerboard layout, she brought understated elegance to this sweet and simple space.

Laura Ashely Wicker Sea Spray makes its second appearance in Varsity Blues as the home’s mudroom flooring. It offers gorgeous contrast against the warm brown details and crisp white walls.

Primary Bathroom

Featuring our Siberian Pearl marble, the primary bathroom is a true show-stopper. With refined wall paneling, gold hardware, and a boldly painted ceiling, we are swooning over every inch of Julie’s design.

Laid in an elegant herringbone pattern, the Siberian Pearl brushed marble brings an elevated, timeless feel to this space while creating incredible interest and dimension.

We love the Siberian Pearl marble because it has so many natural tones running through it.

We can’t forget about this breathtaking shower! Complete with coordinating trim pieces and a striking hex mosaic from the Siberian Pearl collection, its opulence is unmatched.

Jack & Jill Bathroom

As charming as it is functional, the Jack & Jill bathroom maintains a cool-toned palette with the Bulevar Grey tiled shower surround and Meram Blanc Carrara Polished Hex flooring. Soft veining throughout each marble hex plays effortlessly with the gentle waves of texture in the Bulevar Grey, creating just the right amount of movement.

Guest Bathrooms

The perfect place to play with pattern, Julie brought the home’s guest bathrooms to life with two unique, yet complementary designs. The first bathroom features a more sophisticated style with our cement-look Villandry Azure tile on the floor. Pulling out the rich blue tones from the Villandry Azure‘s Victorian-inspired pattern, the Imperial Slate Blue makes for an excellent shower surround.

The second guest bathroom showcases a slightly playful aesthetic with the Blot Noon Hexagon, which imitates the appearance of an inkblot. Similar to the Jack and Jill bathroom, Julie used the Bulevar Grey tile for the shower surround, while adding a luxurious final touch with the Arctic White Brushed Marble Hex on the shower’s floor.
