Tiffannie's Design Tips

Find Balance

“If there's already a lot of pattern happening, stick with a traditional shape if you like to add color, or vise versa. The key is balance—not too boring and not too busy." --Tiffannie

Tell Your Story

“Tile helps tell a story. From vintage tile installed years ago to more modern shapes and patterns, it adds to the feel of a space.” --Tiffannie

Find Variety

“I chose these 8 colors because teals and blues come in various shades, showcasing our handmade glaze process. I was intentional about including glazes with higher color variation, sheen differences, and levels of crackle in the tile.”--Tiffannie

See the Big Picture

“When considering the shape and color of a tile, think about all your other elements. If you don't have a lot of pattern already, don't be afraid to use a more saturated color and one of our specialty shapes.” --Tiffannie

Get the Light Right

“Lighting is everything! If your space doesn't get a lot of natural light, using the right bulbs will help illuminate your space and tile project.”--Tiffanie

The Small, Medium, and Large Method

“Want to incorporate an accent color into a neutral palette? Try it in small, medium, and large proportions to create balance. For instance, if you’re opting for blue, backsplash tile could be the large blue. A medium blue could come from artwork, and the small could come in formal dinnerware.” --Tiffannie

Make Your Space a Destination

“For me, beautiful tropical destinations and R&R go hand in hand. Certain glazes reminiscent of teal waters always invoke the same feel that mirrors these amazing tropical spaces and experiences.” --Tiffannie

Get Back to Nature

“Your living space should nurture you. Bringing the outdoors in is a great way to do that. It can be done using colors found in nature, mirrors opposite of windows, and plants or greenery.”
