Southern Highland Glam Living Areas November 9, 2018 By Stacey Ranieri Tiled Curved Staircase WallTiling the curved staircase wall, leading into the kitchen, with the same mosaic glass sheet tile as the kitchen backsplash, is a subtle, yet stunning, accent to the home. The flooring in the entry, formal rooms and office is a high gloss marble look porcelain tile. The homeowner changed their spindles to wrought iron and stained the banister a deep espresso. The wall tile, continued from the kitchen backsplash, is Taveuni Brick Glass Mosaic from Floor and DecorCustom Iron WorkThe custom wrought iron piece was fabricated to fit the opening between the office and the formal living room. The homeowner wanted some privacy, and a focal point, without closing the space. The high gloss marble look porcelain tile flows into the office as well.Tiled Entry Shelves AfterEntry Shelves Before4 Panel Slider Wall AfterThe new 4 panel sliding glass door allows light to flood into the kitchen. When the large, panel doors are open it brings the outside in, yet screens keep bugs and critters out. Previously, the window with stained brown shutters, made the area very dark.Slider Wall BeforeBar Area AfterThe kitchen, family room and bar area focus on modern elements with a splash of glam. We left the, previously earth toned, stacked stone walls but painted them white to blend with the new, modern feel. Granite countertops, glass front white cabinets, and the sparkly, glass mosaic tile backsplash match the kitchen. The beaded pendant lights t add a little more glam.Bar Area BeforeMarble Tile Wall in the OfficeTiling walls is fast becoming a popular design choice. The office wall, with marble 12x12 tiles, brings warmth in the traditional portion of the home. We installed the TV mount, then installed tile butting up to it, so all that will be seen is tile, no matter what angle the TV is turned. Glass and metal wall sconces give another option besides the oil rubbed bronze chandelier.
