Kitchen Tiles Ideas

It always feels like Christmas to me when I get customer installation photos, and that is especially true today with these pictures! So glad Santa and Mrs Claus seem to approve of this snowy scene.There is a set of four tree tiles in both corners of this kitchen backsplash. The subtle colors and design layout work very well. Many thanks to H.T. for including my tiles in your kitchen, and for sending these festive photos! I'm so honored that my tiles are part of this stunningly beautiful kitchen.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE customer installation photos? It's so gratifying for me to see where the tiles end up after they leave my studio. A big thank you to S.E. for sending these photos of your "birds on a branch" set in action! Love how it looks with those field tiles! Great job!

A tiny washroom and spacious kitchen were both thoughtfully refreshed as part of the renovation of this "Craftsman- Victorian" house that was built in Virginia at the turn of the last century. Both rooms kept their historical character while becoming more fun and functional. The addition of bead board and a tiled backsplash enliven the diminutive water closet and provide moisture protection for the walls. I love the energizing hue of the deep gold wainscoting and how it picks up on the color of the cattail tiles over the classic wall mounted sink. The homeowner sweetly commented, "Who ever thought...

Oh, how I love installation pictures! And they are even more fun when they include process photos. This customer got her tiles from River Light Gallery in nearby Peninsula and installed them in her former coach house which she calls "Skyloft." It is a fitting name given those skylights! Looks pretty dreamy to me. Here are the tiles going up: A praying mantis, honeybee, caterpillar and dragonfly each make an appearance in this cheery arrangement.  As you can see, she planned the layout at the gallery before taking them home: Thank you so much, F.R., for including my tiles in...

It is always an honor when a fellow artist chooses my work for their home! Minneapolis painter Sarah Johannsen and I did a partial trade in which she painted a portrait of me and my husband, Darrell, and I made tiles to go behind the range in her kitchen. She selected multiples of the quatrefoil four tile set in honey glaze to harmonize with her sweet vintage home. I love how the tiles look with that retro, yellow floral curtain! Sarah installed the tiles herself and said it turned out exactly how she pictured it beforehand, which is a good thing.  Here...

I can "bear-ly" contain my excitement over these pictures!!! So thrilled to see what over 150 bear tiles look like installed together in this kitchen. It is a lot of bears, for sure, but the fact that they are all glazed in white keeps them from overwhelming the space. The overall feel is "calm" rather than "busy."  The bears combined with the knotty cabinets give the room a "cabin in the woods" vibe which I find very appealing.  From a distance, you might miss the bears! But you can't miss the fact that this room looks like a welcoming and comfortable...

This lovely kitchen is right here in beautiful Kent, Ohio, just around the corner from the elementary school where I first experienced the joy of ceramics!  I realize how lucky I am; not everyone gets to try ceramics in grade school. Thinking about this fact makes me realize that my community began supporting me long before I decided to become a professional artist. This is part of the reason I always vote "yes" for school levies, even though I don't have children of my own.  Most of the tiles I make ship out of state, but I have definitely been...

Today, instead of making tiles I am working on the website because Darrell and I are having some work done on the house and it has spilled over into the studio. I should be pounding clay again tomorrow, but in the meantime (since I have home improvement on the brain anyway) I will take this opportunity to share pictures of this uncommonly handsome kitchen in Northern Michigan.  What a wonderful mix of earth tones! The variety of natural textures really draw the eye and make a person want to sit for a spell in this warm and inviting room. An...
