Designer Point of View by Stacy Miles, Designer.

I believe that most antique dealers have the best homes. They are so great at mixing pieces that probably passed through their shops and will probably pass through again on their way to another home. “This is another great example of how Neoclassical pieces can coexist with modern art and furniture” especially when I select a few unexpected pieces into the space plan for my clients. .There are many good dealers that specializes in vintage pieces from the 1940’s to the 1970’s. If you have deep pockets, you can always go to auctions.

Tiles:
The Top 3 Most Popular Types Of Marble Tile Flooring;
Marble tiles, which was very popular with the ancient Greeks and the Romans, have always been one of the best kinds of tiles to use for flooring. It is formed when limestone is heated and pressurized within the earth’s crust. It offers strength and durability as a flooring material since it is denser than most other types of flooring tiles such as granite and ceramic, although it is not the hardest natural stone out there. marble tiles are also known for being resilient and exquisite at the same time, making it more appealing to a lot of people who wants quality tile flooring for their homes or offices. It is not only very effective as tile flooring due to its hypoallergenic qualities, but is also being used for its aesthetic value that it brings to the overall look of the structure wherein it is placed.

Flooring, which plays a significant role in the overall look and functionality of the house, is just as important as the furniture that you put in the house. Since marble tile flooring helps create an aura of elegance and functionality, it is considered to be one of the best materials to be used for flooring tiles. There are a lot of different types and kinds of marble tiles out there, each one varying in color, texture and veining, as well as its finishes and overall look. These different marble tiles offer different uses and applications, which makes some people favor certain types of marble tiles over the others. One of the most popular type of marble tile flooring are those that have a glazed or polished finish. This type of marble tiles offers one of the best aesthetic-improving qualities for marble tiles. Glazed or polished marble tiles give the flooring tile an intense shine to it, making its color and design stand out. The shine helps emphasize the flooring tile’s aesthetic value, as well as make it look a whole lot cleaner. Although this particular type for marble tiles make it difficult to maintain since scratches and smudges on the tile’s surface can damage its finish, which is highly visible. However, such marble flooring tiles are relatively easier to clean, especially since marble tiles possess the characteristic of being hypoallergenic, making it difficult for bacteria to survive on its surface.

Another popular type of marble tile flooring is a marble tile that has a honed finish. This type of marble tile offers a more matte-like appearance and quality to the flooring tile, making it more ideal in places that have high-traffic, as compared to polished or glazed marble tiles. marble tiles with honed finishes are more resilient to damage that can be caused by being constantly exposed to friction done by shoes or other hard materials. Tumbled marble tiles are also very popular with people who aim to recreate an antique appearance to their floors. The tumbled marble tiles are able to have that antique look due to the process that it undergoes, which involves tumbling these marble tiles inside a large drum with sand, resulting to marble tiles whose corners are a bit rounded with its edges slightly chipped.
The big picture , designing with tiles and how to achieve continuity, select colors, choose the pattern and shapes of the tiles and adding texture. Knowing the character of the space and adding little details with special effects like bull noses to v-caps and the aesthetics of grout. Always be aware for special considerations; wet areas, showers and inside and in-between outside like an entry foyer. How it all comes together very important that when shopping get lead times, samples, variation in the product and pricing. Tile is low maintence , durable and easy to clean. I have some great ways to introduce tile as a piece of artistry or featured focal wall in any space. Tiles on a wall in a dining room enhancing the space by installing a wall of glass mosaics in a pattern with an iridescent, reflective finish that will catch the light. By adding tile to the room, it will bring color, pattern and texture where it is lacking and complete the style and enhance the attributes that already exposit. Tiles can mimic the look of wallpaper or an exquisite fabric. I like to use tile in a subtle pattern , quiet shades of grey and bring in sophistication and a dose of the unexpected- to any modern room. Tile- The way we live with color, and styles are endless combinations ; Industrial glamour, edgy classic , mid-century elegant, how to mix and match, where to start when designing a counter top ,back splash and floors .
