TINY HOUSE STYLE

When homeowners Aaron and Meredith relocated to Austin, TX to expand their urban winery business, they decided to jump on a growing trend in urban America: the tiny house.

FYI's Tiny House Nation and interior designer, Kim Lewis partnered up to create the 400-square-foot tiny home to much acclaim.

The homeowners wanted a modern space with Bohemian flair that would fit on a parcel of land a stone’s throw away from their winery. They wanted to decrease their footprint and downsize their lifestyle all while having room for their two dogs and a space to entertain clients. It was a tall order, but Kim Lewis was up to it.

Kim turned to Daltile for the stylish yet, classic look the couple was going for. In the kitchen, a black subway tile wall grounds the bright colors and gives depth to the whimsical design. She used Daltile's Rittenhouse Square™ in Black 3 x 6 matte (K711) tile over the entire wall that backdrops the kitchen.

Extending the tile all the way to the ceiling instead of just in the backsplash area highlights the tall ceilings and make the room feel roomier. It also makes the room feel larger because the color is continuous instead of broken up. The choice of matte tile softens the bluntness of the grid pattern and the black color.

In the bathroom, a custom design really sets the floor apart and continues the unique Bohemian vibe. Black and Arctic White one inch hexagon tiles from Daltile's Keystones™ series were used to create the "You look good" bathroom mat-style design makes the bathroom a highlight of the home.

The crisp black and white color scheme gives the eyes a break from the colorful elements throughout the rest of the house but the custom tile floor retains the fun design.

This beautiful interior design proves that any space, large or small, can take on the personalities of its inhabitants. Daltile offers designers complete creative freedom. Whether you go custom or select one of many stylish tiles, embrace the unique with Daltile.
