This hearth is in a 1929 bungalow that is being restored in the Arts & Craft style.

This family wanted to bring some fun and whimsy to their children's bathroom, so they decided to sprinkle an assortment of multicolored animal tiles around the shower. The frog, butterfly, caterpillar, bunny, owl, turtle, chickadee and more are featured. These 2"x2" are great for kids, but they also work just as well for grown ups. Which is good, because kids don't stay kids for long. This is a great way to incorporate some reminders of the natural world into the home.   Thank you so much, S.S., for sending pictures!

It is always a pleasure to receive customer installation pictures! These are a great example of how it is possible to mix handmade feature tiles with field tiles of a different size. Here, handmade 4"x4"s mix happily with 3"x6" subway tiles from another tile company: The homeowners said that at first they weren't sure about mixing different types of tiles, but they are very happy with how the installation turned out. Their tile setter clearly did a great job. Above are the "Maple" and "Wildflower" designs, in honey and spearmint glazes, respectively. Below are the "Elm", "Pine", and "Locust" designs....
