Designer Celia Reiss of Manhattan, NY-based Celia Reiss Interiors recently combined her love of cement tile with her talent for design when she with incorporated the two into her own bathroom.
The 8" x 8" cement floor tiles used in this project are from our Cuban Heritage Design 140-2B 8 x 8 series. They incorporate the contemporary colors of Light Turquoise, Brown, and Caribbean Blue. Celia wisely chose not to use the border pattern for this design because the bathroom isn't big enough to accommodate both a bold border and intricate pattern. The field pattern uses only Light Turquoise and Brown.
Notice how the floor tile wraps up to surround the bath. The tiles carry the pattern on both vertical and horizontal surfaces creating a very sophisticated look. The bath tile is in perfect balance with the floor tile. The antiqued wood vanity with marble top creates a rich, but comfortable space.
Cuban Tile patterns are characterized by elaborate designs, bold colors and prominent borders or double borders. The Cuban Heritage cement tile patterns are from cement tile installations found in old homes or estates in Cuba.
