When we were designing out Black Lake, we knew that tile would be a main component of each space. We teamed up with our friends at The Tile Shop to bring bold, beautiful tiles into every room. One of the best parts about The Tile Shop is that they have so many options to pick from. And, in a world full of crazy lead times, they are quick and efficient in their ordering/distribution of materials. We’ll take you through each room in Black Lake and give you the why behind the selections.
For the laundry room, we chose the new Ragno Blanco Hex 25 cm black + white tile. If you’re coming in from the garage, this is the first thing you’re introduced to, so we wanted to make sure it was a statement. The fun part about this tile – you can lay it in three different ways to create different designs. Pairing this tile with one of our favorite green paint colors on the cabinetry and voila! The perfect space to do your laundry.
For the owner’s bath, we went big… including the size of the tiles. We used tressana blanco matte porcelain tile on the floors, bringing in white/warm tones. To contrast in the shower, we went with one of our favorites, the marmi classico nervo venato silk porcelain tile. As our design shifted during construction, The Tile Shop released the black herringbone tile and we knew we needed to incorporate it somewhere. We added in the black accent wall, and onto the shower floor with the herringbone.
Main Level Bath
For the main level bath, we wanted to keep our tile choices slightly muted, as we had already chosen to install this wallpaper from Anthropologie.
We selected the Annie Selke crosshatch pewter porcelain tile for the floors, and the Annie Selke sketch cream ceramic tile for the shower surround. The pictures can’t even do the tile justice as the texture is what makes this tile stand out.
The bar area was a smaller space in the home and we wanted to make it feel light & inviting – that’s where the picket gloss white backsplash comes into play! Another newer design from The Tile Shop, this tile comes in a few different colors. The gold accents and light fixtures throughout the bar helped make this space ready for the owner’s to enjoy a cold beverage right off the lake.

Lower Level Bath
You’ve heard us say it a million times before, but this bathroom might be our favorite of the whole house. The vertical stacked green tile, color market highland ceramic tile, makes the best kind of statement. We wanted to bring in earthy vibes into the entire home, being as though it’s on the lake. We thought – what better way to incorporate that than green tile?! As the shower surround became the statement piece, we went more neutral with the other finishes, including the tressana blanco matte porcelain tile on the floor.
