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.
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. [subscribe2]
