Red O Siraj Watercolour

Quick Ship: Fast, Economical & Unique!

Our Quick Ship collection is the perfect way to complete a stunning, distinct tile project on time, and on budget! This gorgeous set of patterns comes available in various colour options and styles, to be a breathtaking match for any space. These are suitable for backsplashes in kitchens and bathrooms, feature walls, showers, and temperate fireplace surrounds.

First up is our all-time favourite, Laurels in Pewter art glass:

Anju - Laurels in Pewter Artistic Glass Tile

Anju – Laurels in Pewter artistic glass tile

This gorgeous art glass tile looks incredible with marble, stainless steel appliances, and different eras of architecture. It has a dynamic flowing layout that guides the vision, yet remains neutral amongst other design features. The pattern reminds us of basketry, chunky knits and textiles, braiding and macramé, peaceful olive leaves, trophies and crowns of laurel, or even icing on a cake! Very suitably, this pattern is also available in our Delché art glass colour, resembling decadent golden caramel.
Next is our dreamy Siraj in Watercolour art glass:

Siraj Watercolour shower

Siraj in Watercolour artistic glass tile

Blue is such a versatile colour for a backsplash – Simultaneously calming and refreshing! The variation in our art glass makes it compatible with many other hints of blue – From the finest cabinet of collector delftware, to a simple accent pillow. In a shower, it creates an immersive, spa-like experience, with an elegant form and eye-catching nuances that make the mind wander in relaxation. In smaller powder rooms, it has a huge decorative impact, and can look bold, cool and confident in a selfie-prompting commercial bar backsplash or waiting area feature wall! This pattern is also available in Roan art glass, incorporating more earth-tones.
Captivate with the classic style of Bijou in White art glass:

Bijou in White artistic glass tile

With all the charms of a sweet Southern belle, this frilly, lacy pattern is reminiscent of lovely, delicate luxurious fabrics and drifting poufs of cumulus clouds. It has a clean look to fit nicely into an all-white kitchen, adding texture and subtle variation for an almost-pearlescent, luminous effect. Very slight translucency enables this tile to go well with ranging shades of white. It can be made more neutral with lighter shades of grout, or it can become more distinguished in a space with brighter grout colours!

For a more geometric style, we love Harlequin in Warm Blended art glass:

Harlequin - Warm Blend

This pattern has the swoon-worthy ability to marry together a variety of tones happening in one space! It looks sharp with wood tones, white cabinetry, stainless steel, and can help unite a room where warm and cool palettes both exist, swaying it one way or the other. This pattern is also available in a Cool Blend of artistic glass tile.

We’re huge fans of the final Quick-Ship all-star, Seto in Driftwood art glass:

Seto in Driftwood

Seto in Driftwood artistic glass tile

This uplifting pattern can fit well with so many types of décor. It has a feathery, fan-like shape that can contribute to a contemporary aesthetic, while also ushering in a vintage feel that recalls art nouveau, art deco, and the geometric styles coming up more recently. In Driftwood, it looks fabulous with marble and silvery tones. In a powder room, spa-like bathroom, or feature wall, it gives a sensuous boudoir nod, and breezes along nonchalantly in style, timelessly through the eras!

All of our Quick Ship artistic glass tile collection are available as free samples, and we can usually ship them within a week from the date requested. Like all the patterns we offer, the colours on these patterns are able to be endlessly customized! A pattern shown in only one art glass option is also able to be custom-ordered in a multicolour palette with specified ratios, or a particular layout that draws the vision to a focal point through gradated colour combinations. Laurels in Watercolour art glass? Siraj in Pewter? Seto in the Cool Blend of art glass? A different tile size desired? This shape, but in backpainted Glass Connectables? You name it! We can create the tile you need now, and for many projects to come!

Happy Winter Solstice!

The first day of Winter is finally here, and what a beautiful Autumn it has been! Today also marks that joyous time when we find we are bouncing back towards summer and the sunny days start becoming longer again!

While the days right now remain short, it is the most perfect time of year for getting the densest amount of enjoyment from them! With these long evenings and extra quality time indoors, we can focus more on the home and family, the beautiful moments spent entertaining, and getting back in touch with people we’ve missed. We wish everyone the loveliest of celebrations, from Hanukkah to Solstice, to Christmas, to Kwanzaa, to New Years… and not to mention the ski/snowboard season!

We love getting to see your happy photos of festive decor, and our beautiful tiles shining away! Tag us in your posts, or email us photos, and we will spread the joy!

Please note that we will be closed for the holidays from December 24th to January 1st. Please feel free to contact us via email, social media or voicemail during this time, and we will catch up when we reopen to get started on your projects for 2016!

Pantone Colours of 2015

Pantone’s Colours of the Year!

There is a source of inspiration that designers in every field, from fashion to interiors, have in common – Pantone’s Colour of the Year! Bold and beautiful, these picks are hard to overlook, and they immediately start popping up everywhere. For 2016, something very special has happened: Pantone chose a pairing of colours instead of just one! We were thrilled when we saw that it was Rose Quartz and Serenity, because we have such a nice variety of matches for each!

One of the most beautiful features of our art glass tile is its character. Such nuanced variation can happen from one sheet to the next, and as a result it can add so much unique personality and movement to a space. Some of these colours can look a bit different in person than they do digitally! The very best way to choose your own favourites for 2016 is to request samples, and we are usually able to send them off in about a week. We can even cut them into any of the patterns you might have in mind!   …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Gift Your Household a Gorgeous (and Practical) Kitchen Makeover!

All the hustle and bustle of the holidays never seems to get far away from magic that happens in the kitchen.

Quality time entertaining company, pulling out all the stops on our most prized recipes, and focusing on the comforts of home – These are things that everyone can gather around at this time of year! I think back on Christmas baking as a young child, and the excitement of poofing flour, squishing pastry dough and have a joy for cooking instilled so early in my memory.

Cookie monster bakes

 

What a lovely feeling to think of so many more precious moments there are to come! But maybe… There are also brief moments of horror: Mincemeat on the walls! Flour stuck to the mincemeat! Oily surfaces above the oven from fabulous recipes passed… The cleanup might leave you wishing your backsplash was a little more encompassing.

Hopefully you would have more than a 4″ backsplash for those errant ingredients, but sometimes the kitchen techniques employed are even more inspired. In that case, there has been a recent kitchen trend of taking backsplashes all the way up a kitchen wall. It has been very practically, stylishly applied to areas where the kitchen sink, oven, or a window are placed and extra oil and moisture protection are useful, whether for washing dishes to your favourite holiday songs or thoroughly watering your poinsettia on the sill.

Another big trend is for kitchens (and bathrooms) that emphasize white colour schemes. We have many shades of white, and they can be selected for most of our tile shapes. It’s a lovely way to bring timeless style into a crisp, clean looking space while adding texture and personality. Combinations like Pure White and Veil create an contrast of opacity and subtle translucency, and in different light (such as day to night), Veil appears magnificently blue! Wispy white and grey Pewter adds nuanced silvery tones, and specialty options like matte mirror Glacé reflect light and colours nearby in gorgeous pearlescent gradients.

Any samples ordered over the next week or so should arrive in time for Christmas – a fun way to gift your household with a design makeover, while still consulting with your significant other!

Fairlane "Scale" tiles in Tara Green and White art glass

Edgewater Studio in Gray Magazine

You know that look when someone walks into a room, and has an absolute “WOW” moment? Seeing their eyes light up with effervescent starry enchantment? It’s pretty much the reaction people are having to Mak Interiors‘ redesign of this classic Vancouver home, and it’s exactly how we feel for their choice of our “Scale” pattern in an unbelievable kitchen!

Titled the “Fairlane” house, this project is featured in the current issue of Gray Magazine, and it has the whole Pacific Northwest swooning! It stays true to the local aesthetics of coastal adoration for wood tones, brass fixtures, stainless appliances and clean bright white cabinetry with pops of colour in a dynamic arrangement that adds a huge amount of lasting character. The result is a warm, yet refreshingly nautical, inviting space with a lot of personality for entertaining guests and making great family memories.

This project successfully combines two main trends: all-white kitchens and gradients of colour. Our studio team and designers specialize in custom tile projects, and any of our patterns are readily able to be modified to fit a desired look. If you see tiles in a shape you love, and another colour you adore, we’ll make it happen at the drop of a hat! For this gradient, the standard colour of our Scale pattern was mixed with the same shape in white, and assembled into organized sheets at our studio for easy installation into this beautiful ombre fade effect.

In a city with architectural skylines in a constant state of reinvention, we’re excited to get to be part of such charismatic interiors! It’s nice to imagine all these local rebuilds having so much interior flair. We’ll leave it to Gray to let us know where it’s at, Mak Interiors to design it, and our trusty studio team to keep creating those beautiful dreams into home-sweet-home realities.

Happy Halloweekend! Channel Historic Style with Stone

Take your castle from spooky to spectacular with updated walls, halls and floors!

Add a sense of arrival in the foyer, and dramatic mystique in the kitchen, bath and dungeon. Er… basement!

Make hearts skip a beat with a stunning floor medallion! We complete many custom designs, and they are some of our favourite projects. Swirling floral motif? Art deco restoraton? Elegant logo for big impact? Sugar skull obsession? Mandala for elevated consciousness? MC Escher themed lounge? You name it! We can help create a custom design to command any space.

Crown Skull floor medallion

Crown Skull floor medallion

Here is a medium-sized Skull Medallion from a large series we have produced for a well-loved restaurant, with beautiful floral details of poppies, daffodils and black marble roses, encircling a white marble skull and crossbones that speaks to embellished tales of legendary pirate kings. Everyone loves a good adventure! The green tape is covering silvery grey 1-inch stone squares that have been cut with a waterjet. Almost any design is possible, and stone medallions instantly create historic charm in a space that might be a heritage building, or that are up-and-coming historic buildings in their early years of iconic design, and memories that become legends.
