6 Projects to Inspire For the Holidays

The holidays are right around the corner and we are so excited for all of those cozy nights around the fireplace, baking parties in the kitchen and hot toddies from the home bar. Leave your guests in envy or treat your home to a special holiday gift by adding handmade tile! Here are 6 home tile projects that are getting us into the holiday spirit...

1. Welcoming Winter Backsplash

One thing we're excited for this holiday season are all the over-due dinner parties and if a handmade tiled backsplash isn't the perfect conversation starter, we don't know what is! This custom kitchen checks all the right boxes in a welcoming, dynamic, and beautiful backsplash. Organic edging, custom tile planters, mixed shapes and pops of color make this welcoming winter backsplash first on the list of inspiring projects. Plus, we've heard that the kitchen is said to be the heart of the home. If that's true, it deserves all the best!

5. Powdery Blue Bathroom

We couldn't resist but add our romantic 22E Blue Opal glaze to the list of projects that are inspiring us for the holidays. It's dreamy variation of soft greys and baby blues make us think of a powdery blue winter sky. It's the best partner in crime to brushed brass fixtures and bohemian decor. We'd love to hang out in this freestanding tub during a snowy Sunday afternoon.

6. Cozy Kitchen

This kitchen is without a doubt inspiring the holiday spirit in us! It’s use of dramatic vivid hues reminds us of an Old Hollywood holiday film. One of our favorite glaze colors due to its glossy brilliance, 75 Emerald definitely adds to the glamour of this kitchen. Whether you want to try the classic staggered layout or go for the trendy herringbone pattern, this glaze is sure to make a statement. We can almost smell the homemade meal coming from this space!
