Refreshed Fireplace with Art Glass Tile

It has been a pleasure to work with Jennifer Teeple of Red Razberry Design Group , as she injected a fresh update to this classic home.

Here is a Before shot:

The hearth – Before

 

With Jennifer’s touch, this living room’s strong bones were enhanced.   The overall décor, flooring,  built-in bookshelves and fireplace hearth were given an updated look.    Love the soft yellows in the cushions and chairs!  The fireplace mantel was updated, with Jennifer choosing our Seto tile, in Driftwood Art Glass.

Custom Privacy Screens

And now, for something  little bit different.  You might not know that Edgewater Studio applies its custom design capabilities outside the realm of glass and stone tiles, and does a fair bit of custom metal work.

Don’t know what it’s like in your neck of the woods, but here in Vancouver where real estate  costs are significant,  apartments are getting increasingly smaller, homes and laneway houses are creeping closer and closer together.  The challenge, and opportunity, is to create a sense of separation and privacy in our living and social spaces, in a manner that is visually appealing to viewers on both sides.

Our team is receiving an increasing number of requests for help in designing and fabricating custom privacy screens, sometimes propelled by one of our tile designs, and at other times, like the two pictured in this post, based on something brand new.    We always love a new challenge, so keep the requests coming!

Edgewater Studio Profiled in Design Today

 

 

“Wall Couture”,  in the April edition of North Carolina’s Design Today, profiles recent trends in unique wall coverings.  A great profile of “nouveau” designer wallpapers, that have been seeing a resurgence in popularity.

Those of us with enough  gray hair can remember the less-than- attractive wallpapers in our childhood homes, and the nightmare involved in removing them.  Thank goodness for progress!!

Then there is simply beautiful Italian gemstone wall coverings  from Antolini.  You have to see the images to appreciate them.

Hope that you enjoy reading this  -the article starts on 72.   And our thanks to Kyra Gemberling for reaching out and profiling us.

Kitchen Elegance by Vancouver’s Beyond Beige

 

 

We thoroughly enjoy profiling the talents of our clients.  This is a recent project by Beyond Beige Interior Design - the firm is also a well-deserved recipient of the Best of Houzz 2015.

We had the pleasure of collaborating again with the design team at Beyond Beige to create this backsplash.  It is classic, elegant and we simply love it.  Enjoy more photos of the project in its entirety on their Houzz site.

Calgary’s Rockwood Custom Homes

We have the pleasure of working with Rockwood Custom Homes, an award winning designer and builder of exquisite homes.  The images certainly tell the tale, so we encourage you to visit their site.

In this kitchen, the Rockwood design team chose the “Vintage” Glass Connectable, with a blend of Classic and Detailed tiles.  If I stretch my imagination, I can see myself standing in this kitchen, holding a nice, big glass of wine, with lots of friends milling about …..sigh!

Cincinnati Junior League’s 2014 Kitchen Tour…with a small touch of Edgewater Studio!

 

Home, kitchen and garden tours……LOVE THEM!    It feels as though we would need an 8th day added to every week, especially at this time of year, to attend these tours, that are often held to support wonderful causes.

Our client, Jared, opened his doors in support of the Cincinnati Junior League’s 2014 Kitchen Tour.  Based on the photos, Clay Griffith of Cincinnati Refined seems to have captured the day quite accurately!……

The fourth annual event, which went down Saturday, November 8, was equal parts progressive party, foodie fair, and style show. With plenty of tasty bites, drool-worthy design concepts, and opportunities for socializing (not to mention the occasional fashion surprise), it’s no wonder folks get their tickets early.

Lovely, livable and inviting homes and kitchens, and food that looks simply divine!

Here are a few photos  – one of our Glass Connectable Moroccan,  custom sized and framed as a feature, and another Arts and Crafts kitchen and tile backsplash that we love (sorry, don’t know who made this), a style that is so popular in this part of the US.

Stunning New York Kitchen

One of our customers in New York was kind enough to share with us a lovely image of her backsplash, and I am sure it will be inspiring for many other design –savvy individuals looking for the perfect tile to finish off their contemporary white kitchens. Soft white cabinets paired with white or grey marble countertops are in vogue these days, and our Detailed Moroccan Glass Connectable tile in White Gloss and Matte Linen works perfectly! The mix of gloss  and matte glass gives the tile a kind of 3-dimensional look, while still remaining subtle and elegant.

In a conversation while we were planning her backsplash, Melissa,  the owner of this beautiful home, laughed when saying “if I can only convince my husband”…I’m pretty sure he is convinced now.

Well done and thanks for sending us the photo Melissa!

Quill Delche - Kitchen Backsplash2 (2)

Introducing the “Quill” Art Glass Mosaic

 

Quill is the newest addition to the Art Glass Mosaic Collection.  Clean lines, delicate, lovely.  Here is a peak at the tile in warm Delche –  a great contrast with the dark wood cabinets.  The homeowners even managed to find pendant lights in a similar art glass colour – How lucky is that?

And since it’s August 29th and the unofficial end of the summer (sigh), we wish everyone a wonderful weekend.    Hope that you have plans to make the most of it.

3D-Cube Art Glass Tile – Introducing the Paragon

Paragon - Black (not waterglass) 2

Recognize this?  I have always loved patterns that have a multi-dimensional effect.   Pouring through design media over a mug of tea (Saturday morning ritual), I’ve found this 3-D cube pattern on vinyl floors in modern kitchens, in marquetry,  and in textiles – the latter sometimes in understated tones, or in bright, bold and multi-coloured combinations (think fuschia and orange!)

Why the sudden interest in this geometrical pattern?  Recently, a designer contacted us, inquiring as to whether we could create a tile for her of a pattern that she had seen in her travels, and “ta-da!”,  our art glass Paragon pattern was born. I think I’m in love! The designer chose our crisp, solid “White” art glass for the kitchen she was working on, and hopefully we can see some install images when the project is completed.  It makes a bold statement in solid “Black” art glass as well, and the light bouncing off the glass brings out a subtle depth even when using a single colour.

As we spring fully into summer, to those of you north of the 49th, Happy Canada Day, and to our southern neighbours, Happy 4th.

Thanks for visiting.
