Fireclay Tile at AGJHQ
Working their beautiful materials into our design.
Bringing their incredible color and finish into the space.
I'm also forever fangirling over the Blockshop sisters. Wherever they go, I'm happy to follow. So when I saw that these two design juggernauts partnered up, I knew their collab would be perfect for the kitchen at the building. I reached out to my BS gals and they connected the dots with team FT and the rest is history.
Bottom line: their selection is incredible, I love their mission, and they're made locally in CA just like AGJ.
The kitchen BEFORE... Gross.
A little #BTS of the long and arduous process of decision making and install.
When I was dreaming up backsplashes for the kitchen, I immediately knew that I just had to use these tiles that the Blockshop girls had collaborated with Fireclay on. Just look at those colors!
That 6" Signal Tile backsplash was all I ever wanted (and totally elevated the Ikea kitchen that had to be hacked to be ADA-compliant).
Figuring out which pattern / orientation I wanted for the Signal Tiles
For the bathrooms, because they are commercial (and I wanted the build-out to be minimal for sanitary reasons)...I always envisioned tiling all 4 walls floor to ceiling with a contrasting tile floor for a dramatic effect. I loved mixing the two different colors (Painted Sky / Blue Velvet and Limon / Hunter Green) + two different shapes with similar proportion (3" squares on the walls and 3" hex on floors) to keep things from feeling too serious. Throw in some Brass fixtures and chic lighting. Done!
