On the Job with C: Walker Zanger Tile

I have a love hate relationship with Walker Zanger.  I absolutely LOVE their tile, hands down. On the flip side, many of my clients almost faint when they see the price tag.  That’s where I come in, the middlewoman, suggesting ways we can use “at least a little bit of it somewhere”.  Last week we did just that, figuring out how to showcase it behind a range, but using simpler tile for the rest of the kitchen backslash and later on the shower floor but not the walls.  Here are some of my favorite tiles….

On the Job with C: Athens Grey Tile

With two new builds going strong, I’m spending quite a bit of time working with bathroom tile.  In one of our master bathrooms, we have decided to go with Athens Grey.  It comes in a variety of sizes and has a great warm veining look that I love.  We are not only going to use it in the shower and bathroom floor, but we are going to showcase it above the bathroom tub in polished which is sure to make a great statement.  Here is some inspiration:
