Fireplace Tiles are the Heart and Soul of your Home

Besides being the heart of the home, the fireplace is considered one of the home’s major interior architectural features and can set both the mood and the style of a room. Whether starting from scratch or modifying an existing fireplace, taking the time to learn about fireplaces, both past and present, will give you the guidance to determine what style will best fit your home and you.

“The Nokomis” fireplace

Using two different handmade tile sizes is a great way to add style to a monochromatic fireplace design. White Crane Design:Build commissioned this Copper Patina dynamite fireplace we call The Nokomis. They designed the fireplace using one color in two sizes, 3" x 3" and 1" x 2", to  create a simple and timeless look.  The Copper Patina variation adds highlights to draw the viewer in. Designer Donella Olson of White Crane Design:Build used 1" x 2" tiles to create a sense of movement around the facade and hearth.

The Mission Fireplace

Larger living rooms need a centering piece of architecture for the space to feel comfortable. Large fireplaces set the stage for the type of activities that will take place. This fireplace has two main features the 3x8" Aurora Borealis field tile and two custom stain glass tile mosaic accents flanking both the left and right legs of this Mission Style fireplace. Since the room is large a larger tile can be used to fit the scale of the space. It has a great presence in the space.

Star & Hex Wet Bar Floor

A kitchen floor to remember. Tile shapes offer a vast opportunity to play with patterns. Hexagons combined with star tiles form intricate designs as well as optical illusions. This pattern was inspired by historic geometric Islamic designs. Mixing and matching colors will help your home come to life. We offer three sizes of star and hexagon patterns in all of our field tile colors.

Aquila Pattern Kitchen photo

Aquila Pattern Kitchen

Mid-Century Modern design has two standard design signatures: monochromatic and "multi-mix" (patterns or colors) usually in rich, bold colors. The homeowners used our Aquila pattern to create a dynamic, muiltimix design for their kitchen. With no focal point, it allows the cook, and dinner guests, lots of prolific visuals to enjoy. The homeowners knew they would have lots of accessories in daily use (coffee makers, toaster ovens, spices and cookbooks) and needed a look that allowed them to see the tiles from anywhere in the kitchen. 

The Aquila design pattern is made up of four sizes of tiles:  4x4", 2x4", 2x6" and 1x1" as well as a 4x4" accent tile. Colors chosen:  Wasabi, Copper Patina, and Andromeda Cosmic Clouds.

Coolidge Kitchen

The herringbone design is one of the most classic tile patterns ever made, used all over the world by every culture. Our Coolidge Design is a four color herringbone featuring Cloud Moon Cosmics for an extra highlight. Be warned: herringbone projects like this are head-scratching math problems. You will need to order 20% extra for all of the cuts on the edges. There are challenges at the corners too!  (Hiring an experienced tile setter can make all the difference.)  The Coolidge Design is available for those who want a classic, yet bold look.

Colors shown are Blueberry, Blue Fog, Copper Patina and Northshore.

Tile Mural Behind Stove

Choosing a decorative tile to feature in a kitchen sets the stage for how you envision one of your home's most used spaces. We recommend choosing colors, patterns and designs you have always loved to ensure you will never tire of the features you choose. Tiles behind the stove should not only be durable but also beautiful, adding character to any kitchen. This image shows 2" x 8" tiles in our Northshore glaze, with Coco Moon liners. The mural features a beautifully hand-painted Stone Hollow Tile surrounded by 3" x 3" field tiles.
