Hand Finished, Hand Made, Brings Details Together For Small Bathroom
Waiting for the details you like for a room is well worth it. So often it is evident that a room is “rushed” with whatever the “deciding forces” gather together just to have it all finished. That “hurry up and finish attitude” often lacks a little vision. To me, it’s worth waiting on something that you know you are going to like and ENJOY!
Take the tiles in this small bathroom for example. They were selected to compliment the clay walls and woodwork which tied together the entire vanity area in a pleasant way.
The room has a lovely American Clay finish (Clay type:Loma, pigment- Amber Grain).
It is a joy to live with – as it breathes with the humidity beautifully. The mirror had been positioned on a “temporary” wood brace, just waiting for it’s friendly art tile to arrive one day.
Well, the tile recently arrived, as we ordered from one of the talented artists at The ARCH.
We simply drew a line in the clay, scraped off with a scraper the area where the tile would fit within.
We taped off a few areas and installed the tiles. Any slight touch ups in the clay can be made with the original clay- just re-hydrate what came off the wall(!), or we will use some from a container saved from the original application.
So there you have it, a small area revitalized where all the natural elements work together.
