Behind the Tile
We can’t say enough good things about our dear friend and visual mastermind, Bari J. Ackerman. Her unique lifestyle brand explodes with pattern and color in just about every way you can imagine including floral-filled fabric, stationery, wall paper, and home decor. We first worked with Bari to create her stunning bohemian kitchen with our 2”x6” Herringbone in 75 Emerald as the statement piece (find your own herringbone tile ideas here). It was with this initial project that we soon came to realize that the combination of our vibrant, handmade tile with her curated maximalist aesthetic were a match made in heaven.

Photography and Interior Design by Bari J.
The concept for Bari’s powder room was to give it a colorful yet sophisticated Art Deco look with an emphasis on light. Bari’s vision for a whimsical play on the Art Deco interior style was right up our alley. This era is known for its symmetric and geometric shapes with designs that are often simple and pleasing to the eye. Favorite colors of this era include vibrant and deep yellows, reds, greens and blues with contrasting creams and gold accents. Playing with our deep bluegrass and vibrant sea mist glaze colors was a no brainer for this project but the tile shape was a little trickier. What started as playful Penny Rounds quickly transformed into our scalloped shaped tiles that mimic the repetitive fan effect in so many beloved patterns of this movement. And just like that, Bari’s Art Deco inspired powder room baby was born!

One of our favorite parts of any custom project is the design process. No matter who or where you are, we want to make sure your exact tile vision is seen and heard because we know that custom tiling is just about as scary as it is exciting. Our mission is to make it an enjoyable process. Bari's vision for the space was all about contrast and repetition. Three adjacent walls covered in a repetitive yet eye-catching ombre of 6 vibrant Medium Moroccan Fish scales was the perfect old Hollywood vibe she was going for. Her final color selections were some of our favorite: 47 Vermont Pine, 1036W Bluegrass, 75 Emerald, 1017W Sea Mist, 1017E Sea Mist, 1065 Mint Julep.

Putting it Together
As Bari's powder room started coming together, her Art Deco/Old Hollywood vision was clearer than day. Each element she chose for the powder room played a meaningful role in the whole space. The gold sconces by Corbett Lighting designed by Martyn Bullard contrast the deep teal tile perfectly while also mimicking the scalloped shape. The Caesarstone Calcutta Nuvo white floating vanity also contrasts the richness of the glaze colors and allows for the ombre of the tile to continue underneath. All in all, Bari J's styling made this bathroom remodel one of our all time favorites!

The Cherry On Top
It wouldn't be a true Bari J project without some florals! Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, she and her husband installed her own Bolinas Bay wallpaper on the surrounding walls giving it that one-of-a-kind Bari J flair!
