a new client of mine has saltillo tile in her home.
it adds such charm and warmth into any space,
and i am looking forward to designing her tiled room.
her floors reminded me of a home that my husband built in tennessee.
the homeowners fell in love with the tiled floors of homes they had
visited in the south of france,
and wanted to replicate that
warmth and timeless appeal in their home.
isn't this arch fabulous?
my husband dreams up the most glorious things!
don't believe me? check out this ceiling in house #5.
the gates actually function--the homeowners have
several dogs, and the gates keep them out of (or in)
the kitchen area.
the saltillo tile that the homeowners chose
was handmade in a tiny village in mexico. it was hand cut, and
then laid out in the sun to dry. if you look closely at it,
you can see chicken and dog prints all over the tile!
the homeowners love this detail, as they are animal lovers.
no, i am not the interior designer of these spaces...
i was involved in the early stages of the design process,
but when i got pregnant with baby #3, i decided to
step aside and concentrate on my family.
i think the interiors turned out lovely.
here is a view of the front of the house...
because i know all of you were wondering!
it is even more beautiful in person.
and a view of the view!
this, my friends, is why i miss living in east tennessee!
