A Little Background

As a color connoisseur and interior icon, our friend Rachel Shingleton of Pencil Shavings Studio hits the ball out of the park every time when it comes to creativity. Rachel collaborates with residential and commercial clients to bring their vision to life with interiors that are just as functional as they are beautiful. Her passion for color, style and travel shines bright in her designs creating some incomparable spaces. We are so excited to share with you her newest project using our handmade tile!

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 75 Emerald 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 75 Emerald. 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 75 Emerald is one of our most popular glaze colors? So, maybe being bright and bold isn't as risky as one might think!
