It’s that time of year where our Instagram and Pinterest feeds are full of jaw-dropping pool images that make us long for summer vacation. Icy blue water, a few palm trees and an umbrella drink does the body and mind good! The finish of a pool can completely transform its design to a new level … Read more Pool Tile Inspirations
We are always looking for new ways to showcase our mosaic tiles and to encourage people to use tile in creative ways. That’s why when the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) asked us to design a doghouse clad in tile, we had to say yes! Eighteen members of TCNA donated one-of-a-kind tiled doghouses to the Pet … Read more TCNA Members Donate Doghouses
We loved seeing our Shinju Crest in Moonstone ceramic tile in a master bath remodel on a recent episode of TLC’s Nate and Jeremiah By Design.
In the episode Organic Minimalism, Peggy Lu’s house had become a disaster after six years of unreliable contractors and do-it-yourself projects. She needed design experts Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent to save her from her DIY nightmare before it became too late.
Check out the entire episode and a time-lapse video of the project.
For this year’s modern dog house, Lunada Bay Tile intended to provide Instagram-worthy style and shelter from the midday sun. The roof and side walls showcase the striking architectural shapes of Ka-nū Keel ceramic tile in Harbor Blue, which feature a lustrous, subtly pearlized glaze. The front and back walls are a combination of Ka-nū Buoy Mosaic in Sandbar, Harbor Blue, and Sea Kelp, and the house is trimmed in Ka-nū Plank 1-3/4 x 9-3/4 in Sea Kelp. It was fun to design this project with Ka-nū, which will be available through authorized Lunada Bay Tile dealers later this year.
The Lunada Bay Tile doghouse will join others donated by fellow TCNA members and will be on display during Coverings in the TCNA Art Tile Courtyard (booth #7249). Following the show, all doghouses will be donated to the Homeless Pets Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that saves the lives of homeless cats and dogs in Atlanta area animal shelters and promotes the benefits of pet ownership.
See all that Lunada Bay Tile has to offer at Coverings booth 8062, May 8-11 in Atlanta.
The masters of watercolor—Albrecht Durer, Georgia O’Keefe, John Singer Sargent, William Turner, and James Whistler—created nuanced paintings rich with emotion. The Watercolors ceramic collection by Lunada Bay Tile pays homage to these famous artists through varied hues. Like miniature works of art, the tiles express a handcrafted, artisanal aesthetic through carefully curated color, from delicate to vibrant.
The Watercolors collection comes in two patterns and a coordinating liner. The simplicity of these shapes allows the soft brushstroke effects and colors to take center stage.
The collection is available in five painterly hues that would work with a variety of palettes, from cool to warm.
Another bonus: the Watercolors collection coordinates with so many other Lunada Bay Tile series, such as Mizumi Martini (below left) and Luce (below right).
While watercolor paintings often appear simple in execution, the techniques used can take years to perfect. It can be thrilling to watch a master create an image through the careful blending of pigment and water. The Watercolors collection emulates these pretty brushstrokes for an artistic effect.
