House Envy: Library Transformed

20131017-LOCATION-slide-6V60-jumbo

Would you believe me if I told you that this incredible home was once a single-room library? Built in 1915, homeowners Karen Gilliam and Sara Van Beckum, lovingly restored and transformed this space into their family’s home. Modern elements have been infused amongst the traditional roots, with curves in all the right places. And the results? Well, just take a peek for yourself…

    Love the dark solid gray and solid white paint colors from room to room. Really makes a strong statement (a fresh new look, too) and are perfect backgrounds for every style from ultra traditional to ultra modern.

    The bathroom and bedroom are delightful! I love the pedestal sink and the traditional black and white floors. And those built ins in the bedroom are divine!

      Hi, Jessica. This is a traditional cement tile pattern commonly carried by most cement tile makers (also called encaustic tile or encaustic cement tile). Some commonly used pattern names include “Circulos” (Spanish for “Circles”) and “Geo 10” (as in “geometric”). We currently have this same black and white colorway available in-stock at Villa Lagoon Tile, but with enough lead time, any good cement tile maker can produce this for you in any color you choose. All cement tile is hand-made. :)
