My home is my sanctuary. Never has this been truer. Today we are constantly bombarded about devastating turmoil around the world through 24/7 news cycles. Droughts, famine, wars, austerity imposed due to a poor economy, unemployment, all creating a broad sense of malaise. The news doesn’t report enough of the positives. It’s not all bad news. In the US, families are cooking more often and eating together at home to save money. Friends are gathering to socialize at each other’s homes, rather then at clubs or restaurants. At the end off the day I take refuge in my home.
Over the past 14 years, I’ve designed my home in ways that embrace me. Terracotta floors in my kitchen, tumbled eggplant slate on my bathroom floor, and tumbled Rosso Verona marble accents a lovely Italian porcelain tile in another bathroom. It’s a form of nurturing for my family, my friends and myself.
Begin to invest in your home, but design it for you. Find a look that fits you and your family. Using natural stone tiles throughout your home creates a soothing atmosphere, and works with any style design. This website will help you to form ideas. We can help with the rest.
Selling your home may not be an option in the near future, so forget ‘resale value’ and enjoy your surroundings. Make your home an extension of you. You’re adding value to your home, and creating your own sanctuary.
