Saltillo tile from Mexico fills my home.
Traditionally created from the clay of the clay pits around the area of Saltillo, Mexico, it is a beautifully rustic
12” x 12” tiIe.
I have it throughout my home(with the exception of the bedrooms), and I have always loved it.
I faced a decor dilemma a few years ago, when it was time to select a new kitchen counter top.
All of the trending kitchen counter solutions , although beautiful, were just not me.
Finally, one day while standing in my kitchen, I hit upon a typically quirky White Spray Paint design solution:
Kitchen counters and kitchen flooring are like a handbag and shoes.
I selected my new countertop (the handbag) based on the accompanying shoes (the floor).
Why does this method work?
It is not, I assure you because I think things must ‘match’.
For me it is about creating a design pathway to a decision.
It is that moment of design creativity that allows me to envision a right result.
My shoes and purse don’t always match , but there is a plan.
I decided to use the same framework process for my kitchen.
This all makes sense, right?
