Hi, all!  I just met with Eric from Aamodt Companies in Spring Valley, WI, and WOW do they offer some unique options for tile!  Check it out at http://www.aamodtcompanies.com/index.cfm?event=oakdalegallery.

  They can offer a custom tile mural for any application – from kitchen backsplashes to showers to partition wall glass – with amazing resolution and durability.  The photos, of course, do not do it justice, but serve as a starting point.  Check it out!  If you would like a photo mural of your beloved pup, we can do that.  Would you like to install glass floor tile with photo-realistic grass (so you can enjoy that spring-time, grass-between-your-toes feeling year round) we can do that, too.  Or, how about tile “wallpaper” in your shower.   Very cool process and product.  Let me know if you would like further information, or would like to see samples!

A little fabric can go a long way.  A window treatment doesn’t need to be extravagant, elaborate or formal.  Just a little fabric will soften a window and add that finishing touch to a space.  Look at what a little fabric did for this naked kitchen window!

 

We also recently installed the tile backsplash you see in the photos.  The field tile is a porcelain with a stone look, and the random accent tiles are glass in tones of caramel, bronze and copper – with a little iridescence.  Gorgeous!

 

Did You Know… March 24, 2009

interior designers are available to help you on your do-it-yourself project?  We realize that not everyone needs full service interior design – where we coordinate the installation, product ordering and project management for you.  Perhaps you just need a little help in knowing where to start.  What paint colors should you choose?  What about furniture arrangement?  What about designing that new tile backsplash for your kitchen?  Give us a call!  A few hours of design time can save you lots of money and time in the end; having to repaint the entire basement because you hate the color is not going to make your husband a happy man.  We can save you that aggravation; we can provide a simple consultation, or we can also provide product and/or installation services.  Whatever portion of your project you need help with, we are happy to be there for you.  We hope to hear from you soon!

Glass tiles are all the rage right now, and we have been using a ton of them recently!  From kitchen backsplashes to fireplaces to bathrooms and bars, they can be used almost anywhere to add a little sparkle and a little pizzazz to your home.  One of my current favorite glass tile companies is Oceanside Glass.  They have an amazing array of tile options, in all shapes and sizes.  Some, like the one pictured in this bathroom wall accent, even incorporate slate into the design!  We have a few of the hundreds of Oceanside Glass tiles in our showroom for you to see – stop by sometime and take a peek!

In this complete bathroom remodel, we incorporated glass tile with ceramic subway tile to add a custom accent within our budget.
