A Fez Cement Tile Backsplash Pops In A Emily Henderson-designed Kitchen



Once again, our Fez cement tiles prove their versatility, their adaptability and their talent for bringing out the best in any room.  Take this kitchen designed by HGTV star Emily Henderson. Here they form a playful counterpoint to the simple and traditional elements — the white cabinets, black handles and marble countertop — that make up the rest of the room.   As Henderson points out, “I love how the exotic motif gives any kitchen a casual ‘I’m on vacation’ motif”.  We agree.   We think they’re just Fez-tastic!

The same qualities that make our cement tiles perfect for a hardworking room like a kitchen — in addition to their beautiful designs and vivid colors, our concrete tiles are long lasting, easy care and low maintenance — make it perfect for your home or restaurant space, whether used as floor tile or wall tile.  Call us today at 213-482-8070 to discuss which of our encaustic tile designs would be perfect for your home or restaurant project.

Breaking News: More on Granada Tile in Country Living

By now, we hope you’ve gotten a chance to check out Country Living‘s 2013 House of the Year. As we told you last week, the house in Breezy Point, New York, had been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Country Living tapped designer Emily Henderson to restore it. Her efforts are stunning, and so we’d thought you’d like a bit more about Emily and her work on the house.

For fans of HGTV’s Design Star, Emily’s probably a familiar face: She won and shortly after became the host of her own show, Secrets from a StylistSince then, she’s been designing and blogging about design in addition to serving as a contributing editor at the Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. For the House of the Year, she brought her lively signature mix of old and new to the project, creating a chic retreat for it its owner, Marian Lizzi.

The bathroom, where she incorporated Granada Tile‘s Fez tile design is just lovely. The concrete tiles cover the entire, even lining the bottom of the shower. It creates wonderful unbroken line, and adds the illusion of space to the small room. Our tiles blend seamlessly with the mix of rustic country touches (the sink on a reclaimed wood pedestal) with the more industrial elements such as the sconces flanking the mirror.

We’re also happy to note that from the sounds of it, this isn’t the only time Emily plans on using cement tiles from Granada Tile. We’re delighted to see that she’s thinking of using our sensational concrete tiles in her own home.

Breaking News: Granada Tile’s Fez in the New Country Living

The love just keeps coming and coming for Granada Tile. As you might recall, Granada Tile’s cement tiles have been featured in pretty every major shelter publication out there this year: Architectural Digest, Dwell, House Beautiful, the list goes on. Now add Country Living to the list—we’re delighted to report that our concrete tiles appear in the magazine’s September issue.

Even better, we’re thrilled to tell you that our cement tiles are part of the magazine’s 2013 House of the Year. The story behind this year’s HotY is a great one, and one we’re really pleased to be a part of. You see, Country Living tapped designer Emily Henderson to restore a house on Breezy Point, in New York, that was flooded by Hurricane Sandy.

Country Living

Granada Tile’s cement tile appears in the September 2013 issue of Country Living.

To say that the cottage has been transformed is an understatement. Water had come up several feet, and the damage done was so severe that the house had to be gutted—even the kitchen that had been renovated just a year before. The newly restored house is a revelation. It’s light and bright, with a fresh, beach vibe everywhere.

We, of course, might just be partial to the petite bathroom. That’s where Henderson used our Fez tile design, the signature concrete tile pattern from our flagship Echo Collection. As is always the case, it makes a statement, adding a brilliant pop of color and pattern to the crisp, mostly white space.

Of course, it’s not just the bathroom that’s outstanding. Be sure to pick-up a copy if you don’t already have a subscription to Country Living to see the amazing changes and don’t forget to check out all the great extras on the magazine’s Web site. There’s an interview with Emily Henderson, behind the scenes photos of the construction and a great resource list, if you’re inspired.
