Earth Week: Recycled Tiles

Posted under Tile Choices by on April 24, 2014

As Earth Week continues, the understanding and use of sustainable and recycled materials can make a difference. You can make a difference not only by recycling glass, plastics, and paper, you can also join the effort in purchasing recycled materials such as some of our tile collections that offer recycled or reclaimed content.

Our Crush Glass Collection offers 100% recycled content, Fireclay Ceramics , and some Porcelain Collections also offer recycled content. Reclaimed materials are also a way to reuse materials from an existing structure, such as our Reclaimed Barnwood TilesAsk us how you can incorporate these collections into your design! With endless flooring, wall, and backsplash tile options, there is always a special place to showcase these not only beautiful, but earth friendly tile collections. The wave of the future is leaning toward Sustainable Design, so why not get on board and get educated on how you can make a difference for the future of our children.

Earth Week: Sustainable California Home

Posted under Decor and Inspiration by on April 21, 2014

During Earth Week, we want to bring you Sustainable Design Ideas that you can incorporate into your home remodel. Sustainable or Green Design is not only the materials used, it involves the entire design process, which includes purchasing of goods and materials, demolition, transporation of materials, and the design itself.

The function of the home is also considered, such as use of natural light, natural air conditioning, energy, and even water conservation. There are so many factors that designers and contractors consider that go into sustainable design. This California home in Montecito, CA. is a LEED Platinum-certifed home. Designed by John Maienza and Gregg Wilson, this gorgeous home boasts green roofs, solar panels, and more all without compromising the elements of design.

Easter Tablescapes

Posted under Holiday by on April 17, 2014

If you are hosting Easter Brunch or Dinner, you may want to dress up your table this year with items you may already posses. Spring colors are in full bloom in stores, but check your closets and cupboards, you may have a few items that you can mix together to create a beautiful Easter Tablescape.

These two color schemes play beautifully together, and the one of the easiest and most affordable ways of dressing up your table is floral arrangements. By sticking with one bloom option such as Cherry Tree Blossoms or Peach Tulips, you are saving beaucoup bucks by making your own with one flower type vs. buying the pre-made mixed floral arrangements. Have fun with it, and don’t be afraid to add some Easter candy to the table in pretty little bowls or dishes to add some color. You can also put your grandmother’s fine china to use, and pull from the color palette of the dishes to create a beautiful floral arrangement and tablescape.
