Shannon joined the team in 2013 as Fireclay's Social Media Maven. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, Shannon pursued her lifelong passion for interior design by working as a freelance writer for Houzz. Her interest in design related content eventually led her to Fireclay where she gets to spend her day spreading the Fireclay word and help get tile to the people!

Favorite thing about Fireclay: The beautiful handmade nature of our tile, especially our new Handpainted Collections.

Creative Consultant

Tile designer and ceramist Susanne Kibak Redfield merges her Danish roots and love of traditional crafts with a modern sense of restraint that brings just enough to the design without going over the top. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz in 1981, Susanne started her own business making ceramic tiles. She introduced Kibak Tile through Kneedler Fauchere, a revered interior showroom to the trade, then spent twenty five years in a successful relationship with Ann Sacks. "I began hearing about Fireclay Tile, their sustainable story and youthful energy really captured my imagination, I absolutely wanted to be part a company that really cares about tomorrow. Designing product for Fireclay Tile is energizing, truly inspirational.



How Very Pinteresting!: 8 Spaces That Play With Pattern

Pinned from CocoCozy

We have a serious pattern crush.  We can't help but snap a picture when we catch a glimpse of a great tile pattern underfoot, or get caught staring at an inspiring wall covering.  Pattern, and tile pattern specifically, is one of those things you can tailor to perfectly suit your personality–you can go bold or subtle, and use as much or as little as your heart desires.  Not to mention you can find a way to use patterned tile in almost any room!  

Inspired by our new Handpainted collections we've decided to proclaim our love of pattern and it's versatility by digging through our Pinterest boards to put together a collection of our favorite spaces using patterned tile in unique and inspiring ways.  So go ahead, get Pinspired!

Mediterranean Cool

Any blue and white color combination immediately has us dreaming up our next exotic getaway, which is why we love this cool, Mediterranean-inspired bathroom.  With a cool blue tile pattern on the floor and an all white interior all you need to do to escape is take a soak in your dreamy white bathtub.  To recreate this look with our tile, try any of our cool patterns such as Jerez in our Mediterranean Handpainted collection.

Rustic Contemporary

By pairing rustic wood ceiling beams with sleek stainless steel and a geometric tile pattern, the designers of this kitchen prove that with the right materials, a variety of different styles can be mixed together to create a cohesive look.  We love how the simple geometric tile pattern adds personality while keeping the minimalist aesthetic in tact.

Outdoor Exotic

YUM.  That's all we have to say about this jaw-dropping outdoor bath framed by a cool blue tile floor in a large format design.  Try creating a similar look with our four-tile Handpainted pattern, San Carlos.

Simply Monochromatic

This classic bedroom corner pairs a simple gray and white tile pattern with soft gray walls, and black accents to create a monochromatic look perfect for those of you pattern lovers who prefer a an understated aesthetic.  Create a similar look with our Mediterranean Handpainted design, Ensenito in a neutral motif.

Eclectic Industrial

This kitchen has us dreaming of loft life, what else is new?  We love the contrast of the eclectic cool blue tile against the rustic industrial brick wall.

Making an Entrance

Patterned tile is perfect material for an entryway.  A bold pattern will make an immediate impression on your guest, and gives them a sneak peek as to what is to come in the rest of your home.  Try recreating this simple black and white entryway with our Moroccan Handpainted design, Kabuki Sphere in a dark motif.

Layered Textures

This exotic bedroom proves our point that patterned tile can be used just about anywhere.  We love the contrast of the cool gray linen bedspread and textured walls against the smooth tile floors.  Recreate this look with our Handpainted tile in a large pattern and warm motif.
