Current Projects: Details Are Everything at this Home in Apex

Details are everything at this spacious home in Apex.  Situated on a private wooded lot on the shores of a lake, this spacious retreat reflects our client’s bold sense of style.

My favorite detail is the family room fireplace.  It features a modern curved surround covered in glass tile.

The Master Bath is generously-proportioned and bathed in light.  A sculptural tub sits under a huge picture window next to a shower with glass tile accents.

A spiral staircase leads to the home’s most unique feature: a room at rooftop level with a panoramic view of the surrounding treetops.

At ground level, there is a fully-equipped glass studio for the home’s creative inhabitants.

Even the bathrooms and mudroom receive a special touch with custom cabinetry.





Guest Blogger Series: Eco-Friendly Tile

Decorative tile can be environmentally friendly and still look beautiful! In our final post of the Guest Blogger Series with Triangle Tile & Stone of NC, LLC we bring to you a new way of thinking about tile. Triangle Tile and Stone of NC, LLC represents Medicine Bluff Studios, a small artisan studio that takes corporate social responsibility to a new level.

Within the interior design industry the manufacturing stages of  the production process are constantly being redefined as the demands from consumers has increased to purchase environmental friendly products.

Triangle Tile & Stone - Medicine Bluff Studios (3)Medicine Bluff Studios is a small artist driven tile studio that has always used environmentally friendly methods during production. Since the company was started, owners Debbie and John have used locally purchased clay to produce their beautiful decorative pieces and they donate leftover clay to local art programs for use in their classrooms.  They also utilize lead-free glazes and rely on air drying their tiles before they are fired in electric kilns, which cuts back on fumes and harmful gases. Another step that Medicine Bluff Studios uses in order to achieve an even smaller carbon footprint is using recycled packaging materials. They even shred documentation and use it to package their tiles. This company truly is nice to the environment and nice to the eye as well!”

Do you work for or know of a socially responsible company worth mentioning? What is unique about them? What are you doing to help create a livable space while also being eco-friendly? We would love to hear!
