Where it Started
Any simple shape can create an outstanding pattern, even hexagon tiles. We first became acquainted with Rachel when she chose to use our one-of-a-kind signature flower pattern with small hexagons with a vanity and shower covered in 23 Sapphire Blue Subway Tile for her master bath. This is when we realized that for Rachel the sky is the limit when it comes to color. With this design, she proves that the stigma of only black and white designs can be classy is totally wrong.

On to the Next One
Just when we thought it couldn't get much better than Rachel's master bath transformation, lo and behold, her kitchen remodel! Jumping from one pattern to the next, Rachel landed on our 2"x6" Herringbone Pattern in 1036E Bluegrass for her boho chic kitchen refresh. One of the many things we admire about the design is her use of bold colors and patterns while always keeping it classy.

All in the Details
From the brass hardware to the natural elements, no details go unnoticed in this kitchen. That's why we wanted to make sure the finishing touches of the tile matched the rest of the ambiance. Together we decided to line the window with 1"x6" Bullnose in 1036E Bluegrass. Bullnose is the most diverse option when it comes to finishing pieces and can make all the difference in your final design.

Food for Thought
One thing we love about this glaze and pattern combo is its versatility in any space. Whether you are wanting black, brown or white cabinetry, this glaze color will fit right in and accent all the best parts of your space. Did you know that 1036E Bluegrass is one of our most popular glaze colors? So, maybe being bright and bold isn't as risky as one might think!
