Sample LaTonya's Fireclay Favorites

Meet LaTonya

With a decade of blogging, two children, two books, and a career as a stylist under her belt, LaTonya Yvette draws on her unique perspective to design spaces that are welcoming and nurturing to all—but BIPOC in particular. This intention led her to the Mae House, a 173-year-old home she purchased and lovingly restored (with lots of beautiful Fireclay Tile!) as a place for BIPOC to rest and commune with nature.

The Mae House recently opened its doors, so we sat down with LaTonya to chat about the restoration process and hear more about her inspiration and goals for the space.

A Place to Rest

Thoughtfully designed with community and connection in mind, the Mae House is more than a vacation rental. This New York home offers a respite away from the bustle of the big city with plenty of natural space and free quarterly residency programs and sliding scale rates to BIPOC guests.

Step Inside the Mae House

The Mae House: Kitchen Backsplash & Checkerboard Floor

With a clear vision of what– and who– she was nurturing a space for, LaTonya Yvette transformed her colonial-style home into a retreat that emphasizes Black joy and rest. In the welcoming kitchen, she brought her checkerboard floor dreams to life with 12x12 Ceramic Tile in Feldspar and Red Rock, while a timeless backsplash of 4x4 Ceramic Tile in Hunter Green grounds the natural brightness in this thoughtfully appointed space.

The Mae House: Sunny New Traditional Bathroom

Designed with eternal summer in mind, LaTonya Yvette’s 173-year-old colonial-style rental home features a sunny primary bathroom that shines like a jewel box thanks to Glass Tile. Warm tones of 3x12 Glass Tile in Falcon Gloss across the floor complement the mustard wainscoting of 2x6 Glass Tile in Oriole, while a hand-painted mural of native plants graces the top half of the walls.
