From the Inside Flap
Introducing tile and stone into the home gives designers and home-owners an artistic medium like no other. Reclaimed, antique terra-cotta stone can transform a high-rise city kitchen into a French countryside retreat. Italian mosaic tiles hand-assembled in geomet-ric borders and colorful murals can turn an ordinary bathroom into an oasis of luxury.
In this high-tech world, tile, stone, and mosaics can fulfill our innate desire for high-touch. With them, we can create homes that are sen-sual places where the feel of cool stone beneath bare feet is as important as its deep, rich color, or how the sunshine illuminates it.
This book traces the latest designs using tile, stone, and mosaic. Through beautiful photography and illustrative text, installations for every room in the house-kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and more-are presented. Renowned designers and tile manufac-turers from around the world share their exquisite creations.
For interior designers, homeowners, and apartment dwellers, this is an essential guide to using tile and stone to enhance and decorate. Designing Interiors with Tile: Creative Ideas with Ceramic, Stone, and Mosaic will surely inspire.
