Many of my clients have found the process of making tile selections for their home overwhelming, particularly when the to do list includes their kitchen, mudroom, four baths, powder room and wet bar.  We focus on one room at a time and imagine how the personality of each space can be transformed by installing different patterns, colors and textures of tiles.  A good design tip to remember when selecting tile is to make sure all of the finish materials in your space work together as not to compete with each other and let just one be the star.  Here are some creative examples of tile as the focal point of a room.
