This bubbly modern backsplash at Cocoon Salon is the perfect place to suds up!The chic tile installation balances sophistication and fun, a representation of what this salon is all about. Cocoon is a short drive from our office. Our founder Mercedes has been getting her hair cut there ever since they opened. Now when she's getting her hair bubbled, she's surrounded by bubbles from her handmade tile factory.
"This unique salon was already dear to my heart prior to designing their tiled backsplash. Not only do they make my hair look amazing all day every day, but the owner and I connect on many levels by sharing similar values as business owners. Both of our businesses inhabit renovated historic buildings, filled with artists who value process and details. Located in NE Minneapolis, we both love the culture of our neighborhood, embracing high-quality craft in all of its forms"
- Mercedes Austin Owner/Founder/Mover Shaker
Bubbles Wash Station
Bubble tile was a natural choice for Cocoon's wash station where shampoo bubbles are plenty. While many clients enjoy mixing vibrant colors with bubbles, this concept didn't match the minimal design of the rest of the salon. We landed on 11 Deco White with white grout for stunning simplicity. This is a great example of how versatile our tile shapes are, and how big of a role glaze choice makes for a project. We can help you find a way to play with shape, color, and layout to match your personal style.
You can order this Bubble Tile online from our shop! This shape ships in easy-to-install, interlocking sheets.
Tile Transition Magic
Recently, we've been all about mixing tile shapes together. It creates an impressive custom-look without spending custom-look dollars. For this project we created a horizontal wave of bubbles by organically merging the shapes with 3″ x 8″ Subway Tile. Love this idea? Check out this kitchen backsplash that transitions from Diamonds to Subway.
