We are all so ready to say goodbye to 2020 – and despite it’s many challenges for ourselves and our clients, we at Bella did have the opportunity to design many beautiful spaces for our clients during the year of Covid-19. So we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of Bella Tile & Stone’s favorite projects from this past year. In a time when we all have been home more than ever, living in spaces that are fresh and new can make all the difference. So sit back, enjoy the tour, and warmest wishes from all of us at Bella Tile & Stone for a happy, healthy 2021!

#12: A Fireplace For All to Gather Around: I mean, how beautiful is this fireplace? The warmth of the wood mantel combined with the marble herringbone which brings a sophistication to the entire space – we can’t get enough of it! This living space is part of our great Partner Miller Marriott’s 2020 Model home which has now sold – how lucky are these homeowners?

#11: Looks Like Wood Parquet but it’s Porcelain: This lake house lower level has the most fabulous porcelain wood look floor – it looks like fancy wood parquet but it’s the most durable, practical large format tile you can imagine – with the style of a high end parquet floor. Walk in wet from the lake and no one’s going to be mad at you – these floors can take pretty much anything and they will last a lifetime!

#10: Lake House Fun For Everyone: We simply cannot get enough of these adorable lake house bathrooms using ceramic penny tiles to customize the floors with kitchy verbiage (not to mention the amazing Whale wallpaper)! We always say that having a lake house allows you to get creative and bold – do things you wouldn’t do in your more formal spaces – and this pretty much tops our list of favorite ways to have some fun with your space.

#9 Getting Creative : Our clients wanted to figure out a way to use a tile they absolutely loved but could not afford to use in a large way, or even in a small way – so we all put our heads together and came up with a way to implement using just one 6×6 tile in the niche of their Master Bath – a special pop of beauty that really stands out.

#8 Let the Sun Shine In: When we suggested a black floor tile for this sun porch the owners took a big leap of faith that we knew what we were doing – and we are proud to report that they are so glad they trusted us on this one! We knew that the amount of light coming through the black trimmed windows in combination with painting the brick white would be a stunning backdrop for this floor. Set in a herringbone pattern it brings a whole other level of cool to the space.

#7 So Fresh and So Clean: The white & Blue patterened hexagon floor (which is so cool!) paired against the blue subway tile and white vanity and walls gives this room such a clean and fresh feel – what a light and bright space! Photo cred for this gorgeous bathroom goes to @Christinagphoto

#6 Who Cares How Much Laundry You Have? Doesn’t matter how many loads of towels, sheets and clothes pile up in this house – the homeowners get to be in this awesome space to get their laundry done – no complaints here!

#5 Cocktails Anyone? This design included the bar area with the antique mirrored subway, and a full lower level of wood look porcelain set in a herringbone pattern on the floors. We love the pop of red on the bar chairs to give it a speakeasy vibe!

#4 Calgon, Take Me Away! The standout in this room is the feature wall of dimensional ceramic pickets that surrounds the large soaking tub – dreamy and soothing on a dreary or a sunny day! The warmth of the porcelain wood look floor brings it all together.

#3 Old Meets New: Look at this stunning floor – made from recycled glass they are tiny hexagon tiles that make up this beautiful patterned mosaic. The texture of the floor is pure luxury – so soft on the feet! We love how this tile brings an updated, fresh feel to an old school classic. The fun blue and white theme carried out in the shower and the bathroom walls makes for one spectacular lake house bathroom!

#2 We Can’t Even….. Believe someone gets to live in this house and have an entire spa and sauna all to themselves! The standout of this design was both the amazing wood look porcleain wall feature – we used it on both the shower walls and the vanity wall to make quite a big impact, and the stone floor – in such a large space the stones are quite dramatic and gives such an earthy, natural feel to this entire space. We are quite proud of this one!

#1 Kitchen Dreams Really Do Come True! This kitchen is everything. From the beautiful rustic custom hand painted spanish tile backsplash to the stunning range hood and light fixtures – we don’t want to be anywhere else but here for the rest of 2020 and beyond!

That’s a wrap on our 12 days of Tile Countdown, not to mention a big goodbye to 2020. We look forward to designing more amazing spaces together in 2021! Cheers!
