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 Stylist. Since 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. To learn more about Emily’s design for the House of the Year, be sure to visit her site. There are plenty of tips and behind the scenes photos that might just inspire you. [subscribe2]
