Tile Trends 2019 I

I like to use tiles for my projects since tiles are one of surface coverings that are super easy to clean, no off-gas and add interesting design elements to any  interior space. If you are planning a renovation project this year, you may want to know what are the trends for tiles in 2019.  Here are 5 trends I summarized by looking through the new designs on internet and trade shows:

Trend 1–While the large-format size tiles are getting larger, the revival of the small format floor is real this year. Small-size tiles with fashionable colors and irregular shapes truly give the design more fun and flexibility.  I used to choose large-format tiles for our statement powder room design (see below), but now, I choose 3″x8″ sky-blue tiles for one of our newest powder-room projects:

Check out before-and-after video and see how we incorporate small-size hand made tiles with hand-painted wallpaper for this powder room design.

And here are are more small-size tile applications:

Trend 2— Geometric Accents:

There are two main inspirations that are quite fresh for 2019. Art Deco, organic inspired graphic design, and simple lines or un-pretentious geometry.

A Day Trip to Adamson House

It will be always wonderful to visit some historical architecture in a sunny day.  Adamson House , a  enchanted beach house, located in Malibu, California, was built in 1929 by Rindge family.  It is a typical Spanish Colonial Revival style home.  We really enjoyed our day there.  What really special about this house is the decorative tiles they used through the house.   Such a beautiful craftsman-work!
