As soon as the kids start going back to school, you feel that summertime is coming to an end. End your summer on a good note with a Bohemian Soiree! Gather your family and friends and enjoy the warm nights while you still can. Set up a low farmstyle table and dine al fresco. Take note from My Domaine and throw down a bohemian rug and throw pillows for a comfortable and intimate atmosphere.
Arrange your place settings with unique shapes, and introduce disposable wood cutlery for easy clean up. Keep the centerpieces simple with flowers from the garden, or use simple potted succulents for a touch of subtle color. Hanging party lights above the table sets the mood, and keeps the conversation going outdoors. Wouldn’t you want to drink and laugh with your friends in this dreamy setting from Pizzazzerie? Get this look with similar products we found for your own Boho Soiree!
When it comes to Mosaic Tile many immediately think mosaic tiles are best left to small spaces or backsplashes. Au contraire mon frere, mosaic tiles can be the main flooring material in your home! This stellar British townhouse by Suzy Hoodless is a prime example how you can have your mosaic tiles on the floor, and all the luxe that goes with this look too.
A geometric or larger mosaic tile is the safest bet for achieving a similar look, and lucky for you we have some amazing stone and ceramic options. Get this luxe look for less with one of our many geometric and unique Mosaic Tile flooring options for your space. We have a variety of new options as well, so be sure to stop on by one of our showrooms to see them in person!

It is no big secret that the HGTV Show Fixer Upper is a definite fan favorite, and we are drawing inspiration from Joanna Gaines’ Coffee Bar Stations. These stations are clever ways to offer coffee to your guests, but also gets the coffee pots, espresso machines and Keurig makers off your kitchen counters. Not only can you display your coffee pots and cups, you can create a small bakery look that is perfect for Sunday Brunch at home!
This chalkboard inspired look is a creative way to display a menu, holiday greetings, or add your own creative doodles. Whether you have a built in buffet or re-purpose an old dresser, you can achieve this look with rustic shelving, chalkboard paint, and some elbow grease.
Sliding Barn Doors are quite the space savers like the old pocket door standby, but these days Barn Doors are making quite the statement. With exposed hardware, texture from reclaimed wood materials, and their ability to transform a room are giving designers and DIY’ers space saving solutions. Here are some steal-worthy Barn Door ideas that you can incorporate into your home!
Say Yes to Color. This Barn Door separates the dining room from the kitchen, but it’s biggest appeal is the bold pop of color. Red is an appetizing color, so choose a red or warm tone if you want to incorporate this look into your dining room as well.
Hidden Storage never looked so good. Swap out your pantry’s basic sliding doors with a barn door like this one. You will not have to worry about the doors going off track with a durable wall mounted track, and this barn door idea looks like a custom design.
Versatile Storage is key in a small space, and this case a hidden buffet is a fabulous idea! I love how you can display your china or glassware with the barn door open, but if you were to have a formal dinner you could slide the barn door shut and display the menu on the chalkboard. You could DIY the chalkboard with chalkboard paint, and feature menu items, holiday slogans, or for everyday use draw up a to-do list.
Reuse your front door or interior doors. I love the window panes in these barn doors to separate living spaces or use for a walk-in pantry. Remove all your interior bedroom doors, and simply run them on a wall mounted track for a more industrial look.
It could be love at first sight with our Mate Collection, especially this Porcelain Chevron look in Marmo Nero. Meet your match with the variety of porcelain stone looks offered in unique shapes and sizes. We love this chevron pattern on the floor in a living room, entryway, bathroom floors and up the walls! You can certainly let your imagination go wild with this luxurious, yet inexpensive porcelain tile option.
With the look of natural marble without the maintenance of natural stone, your home can lavish in all the beauty stone offers without the upkeep. This look would also look stunning in a pool house during the hot summer months, and the water brought in from the pool will not damage this tile. Beyond the many reasons why our porcelain tile options are durable, they are all selected based on their beauty, just as our selection of natural stone. Stop on by our Showrooms to see the Mate Collection installed in person today!
