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

Kitchens With COLOR: Purple

And so my Kitchens With COLOR series comes to an end. And what better way to end it than with the color at the end of the rainbow: purple? Prior to my research for this post, I thought I would detest the use of purple in the kitchen. While I enjoy purple as a color, … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Pink

Ah yes. Pink. I have mentioned pink on this blog before, but today we focus on it in the kitchen format, which is absolutely a harder space to pull off pink than say, your girly girl bathroom or vanity area. There are many things I love about the color pink. First and foremost, it’s a … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Yellow

Well, October is officially over, and November is here. To me, this marks the beginning of the holiday season. And before you jump down my throat about celebrating holidays too early (Christmas decorations for sale in October? Slightly excessive, Costco), let me clarify that my mood begins to shift from winter dread to childlike excitement. … 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┬ápost will focus entirely on using red┬átile. Red is a tricky color to get right, I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you folks. I was only able to find a handful of photos that I felt comfortable sharing … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Blue

I’ve been called out. Yes, dear readers, one of you has called me out. And I thank you for it. I have been posting a lot about neutral kitchens lately. In my defense, that is due to the fact that the overall trend with kitchen design at the moment is towards neutrals, but that is … Continue reading

Kitchen Backsplash Trends

So, earlier this year I wrote a post discussing the tile trends for 2011. This was an all-encompassing list of the top 5 trends in the world of tile. A reader has suggested that I do up a post on backsplash-specific tile trends, and I thought that was a fabulous idea, so here we are. … Continue reading

Artisan Glass Kitchen Backsplash

I have been hemming and hawing about replacing our kitchen backsplash tile since we moved into our condo. Not because there is anything hideously wrong with it…but because it’s white. And boring. And I work in a tile store…no excuse. I’m a girl of pattern, texture, and color. Also, our kitchen is a little disjointed, … Continue reading
