Top 10 Residential Tile Projects of 2018

As we countdown to 2019, we're looking back on the best of 2018. With so many inspiring residential installations to choose from, it was quite the challenge to pick just ten! The year's tile trends have been defined by bold blues and greens, geometric patterns, and a whole lot of beautiful design that we're so proud to be a part of. We're recapping some of our favorites here but for more, head to our Pinterest Board that has even more highlights from this past year. 

Ps. We love to see your projects! If you share on social, make sure to tag us and use #Fireclaytile 

Here's our top 10:

10. A Family Affair: Master Bath:
Sister act Justina and Faith Blakeney infuse their parent's master bath with their signature global flair. Ogee Drop in Nutmeg warmly contrasts with handpainted Summit in Green Motif, outfitting the space in earthy luxury. To see the whole renovation (including a kitchen and guest bath) click here!

1. Mandy Moore's Rosemary Bathroom: 
Midcentury modern details make Mandy Moore's Jack & Jill bathroom sleek and streamlined, but it's Rosemary's high variation and crackled detailing that lend it a luxuriously organic allure. For more on Mandy's project, click here!
