Fashionable Tiling

In honor of the recent fashion shenanigans during the legendary New York Fashion Week last week, I thought we should discuss how very similar the fashion and textile industry is to the tile industry. Seems strange, doesn’t it? For all of you who believe that fashion is silly and/or shallow…well, it is. But whatever your … Continue reading

If All Else Fails, at Least You Have This to Fall Back On

Hello. Bonjour. Ciao. Aloha. Hola. Yes, I’m still alive. Why did I go temporarily AWOL from my beloved blog? Well the reason is two-part. First of all, I had some personal issues arise that really distracted me from my writing. It just got overwhelming with everything I had going on. It won’t happen again. Second … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Orange

Happy Halloween my beautiful (and handsome) readers! I’m taking it easy on Halloween this year; just a nice night carving pumpkins with my significant other and watching scary movies while he tries to scare the bejezus out of me. I hope you are all enjoying your holiday as well! In honor of this great holiday, … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Green

I would like to begin by mentioning that I was very surprised by how many green kitchen concepts I found. When I began this post, I had over 30 photos. I have whittled it down to these 15, which is still quite a bit larger than any of my other color-related posts, but I had … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Red

While I have already taught you how to add a red *kapow!* to your kitchen before, this post will focus entirely on using red tile.
