Forget seashells–Real Simple Home’s loft bathroom is all about the elevated coastal look thanks to handmade tile. Showing off its rippling color variation, sleek 2x8 Ceramic Tile in blue-green Salton Sea on the walls and 3x6 Ceramic Tile in the same soothing shade across the floor achieve an aquatic palette that fits perfectly with the elegant beach house.
This year’s Real Simple Home kept it coastal cool in the kitchen with a brick backsplash. Stretching from pristine white countertop to lofty ceiling, and framing the navy-trimmed windows, Glazed Thin Brick in sagey San Gabriel shows off its handmade variation and exudes elegant charm in a classic offset pattern finished off with a clean row of vertical Brick.
Banner Day Interiors created a herringbone haven in Real Simple Home’s primary bathroom and closet. Laid in a timeless herringbone pattern, 2x8 Ceramic Tile in blue-green Flagstone wraps around the soaking tub in a handsome wainscot that continues along the floor all the way into the closet.
A luminous backsplash, in five days or less! This modern kitchen benefits from classic, straight-set 3x6 Ceramic Tile in Pearl (available in our budget-friendly, quick-shipping Essentials collection), outlined in a bright white grout that lets Pearl’s beauty shine.
