[Houzz Ideabook] Accent Tile Design Ideas

Contemporary bathroom

Handmade Tile:

It can be expensive – that’s the bad news. Good news is that there are so many ways to use handmade tile as an accent alongside less expensive, machine-made field tile or stone. This is a great way for handmade tile to fit into nearly every budget.

For example, take a look at this gorgeous tile combo pictured to the right by San Francisco interior designerNiche Interiors.  The red handmade ceramic border, installed low on the wall and paired with natural stone & brass details is warm, fun and completely unexpected!

Below is a Houzz Ideabook showing even more examples how  to add color & interest with accent tile.

Retro Finds at Spinario Design

One of my favorite places to browse for interesting furniture and accessories is long-time love, Spinario Design in Minneapolis.  I wrote about Spinario back in 2007 on the LLD Latest and Greatest blog.

Well, Spinario is better than ever with their unbelievable selection of midcentury modern and eclectic retro decor, including furniture, lighting, artwork and accessories. Their store is a place to dream and be inspired. I still am in love with the Lane desk that I wrote about previously, shown here, and long since sold. Sigh. Never to fear, though. Spinario always has a great selection in the store and warehouse, with treasures just waiting to be discovered.

My newest loves from Spinario, wouldn’t you like to know!? Okay… here are just a few of them:
