10. At Home with Chaine Homme
Interior designer Becca Stephens and architect Jen Hill collaborated on this cozily eclectic kitchen featuring our Chaine Homme tile in Slate Blue. We love the pairing of colorful cabinetry and tile, plus the fact that they chose the 'H' for their last name.
9. Glazed Brick Fireplace Plays It Cool
Kristen Peña made us all swoon over this perfectly simple, classic fireplace design.

8. Jaclyn Johnson’s Small Diamond Bathroom Floor
Jaclyn Johnson, founder of Create & Cultivate, used our Small Diamond floor tile to amp up her chic master bathroom's foundation. If you're looking to make a pattern really pop, look to this project for inspiration. We loved the use of dark grout with bright white tile.
Tile Shown: Small Diamonds in White Wash
7. Elana’s Airy Island Style Kitchen
Hawaii-based photographer and blogger Elana Jadallah was initially going to go for classic white subway tile in her kitchen, but opted for 4" Hexagons in Aqua instead. This kitchen is a testament to how color can really up the wow-factor in a space without being overwhelming.
Tile Shown: 4" Hexagons in Aqua
6. Honoring Eichler with Destination Eichler
Karen Nepacena of Destination Eichler used an eclectic mix of colorful field, mosaic and handpainted tile to add unmistakable verve to this refreshed Eichler. We especially love the custom colorway of Padma Karen created with our Color-It Tool that was used for the bar.

5. The Modern Caravan's Mosaic Backsplash
The creative nomads behind the The Modern Caravan gave their own vintage Airstream a modern-day update featuring our 1x6 tiles in Tusk. The beautifully subtle and thoughtful design of this space made us all want an airstream of our own!
Tile Shown: 1x6 tiles in Tusk
4. Midcentury Meets Modern Bathroom
This bathroom's statement-making floor tile beautifully bridges the gap between midcentury and modern style. We loved seeing one of our newest shapes and colors, (Hexite in Dusty Blue) installed, plus, we liked Urbanism Designs choice of larger field tile on the shower walls.

Tile Shown: 6x12s in White Wash
3. Hexagon Basalt Bathroom of our Dreams
Bay Area interior designer Kristen Peña makes our list a second time with this bathroom's matte black 8" hexagon wall and shower tile. Dark, moody colors like this were a popular trend this year and this project goes to show that they don't have to feel overwhelming or ominous.

2. House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year
In the 10th annual House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year, our Glazed Thin Brick in Meteorite takes the stage with Designer Jon De La Cruz's bold take on the offset pattern. We was a treat to see one of our newest Brick colors installed in such an incredible space.
1. The Junalow Returns
With a little help from our Color-It! Tool, designer Justina Blakeney's remodeled her second bathroom with her signature flair (and our tile). Of course we all fell for her bold use of color and pattern, but this project also highlights the importance of finding the right installer for your project. From the three shower niches to the herringbone walls and floor, this bathroom was a true collaboration between Justina and her installer. We thank all you tile installers for the beautiful work you do with our tile!!
Let's take a closer look at that arched niche:
