In the last few weeks, we’ve shown you some inspired cement tile installations with Granada Tile. Echo Collection favorites have appeared in the form of Fez in Country Living‘s House of the Year, and Vogue covered a sweet beach bungalow with a show-stopping outdoor firepit clad in our Serengeti concrete tile design. Apparently good things must come in threes, because we’ve got another great tile installation to share with you today—this time it appears in the pages of the September issue of Martha Stewart Living. The project is a house in a hilly Los Angeles neighborhood. Originally designed in 1953 by Gregory Ain and James H. Garrott, the place has been restored and updated by its new young owners. While remaining true to its midcentury roots, the couple has updated and refreshed finishes for a more contemporary feel.
In particular, and what delights us to no end, is that they chose our Echo Collection’s Serengeti tile design to cover a terrace. For the cement tiles, they opted for a custom colorway of cream and olive. The singular choice was made to complement the landscape and adds visual and textural dimension to the house. It’s perhaps an unexpected choice for a classically midcentury house such as this, but it works perfectly. And you can bet, even outside, that the concrete tiles will still look incredible year after year. To experiment with your own custom tile design, visit our Echo Collection’s interactive catalogue.
