Breaking News: Custom Kitchen Cement Tiles On The Cover of Tribeza Magazine

Last week we shared about the custom cement tiles we created for the wall and backsplash of a Texan kitchen that propelled it onto the cover of Bungalow.  Here’s another view of that same kitchen, this time gracing the cover of the January interiors edition of Tribeza, another Austin-based publication.  In this photo, the concrete tile backsplash shares center stage with the smiling family.  We’d smile too if we were waking up to these kitchen tiles!  They’re modern, with a hint of deco jazziness, and the black, white and grey color scheme is a great counterpoint to the simple cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, adding warmth and playfulness to a space that’s all about bringing the family together to nourish body and soul.  On our part we’re over the moon that this kitchen (and our custom cement tile) made the cover of two magazines.  Perhaps we should hashtag it Texas Tile Tuesday?
