A Designer Chooses Cuban Tiles for her Bathroom

A few weeks ago a Manhattan designer, Celia Reiss, called to purchase some more Cuban Heritage cement tile samples. She mentioned that the Cuban Tiles she purchased at the beginning of this year had been installed and she was really pleased with the design. I am, too! Here's the results.

I smiled when Celia informed me that she installed the tiles in her home. She went on to explain, "The tiles were installed in my own home to be able to show my clients how fabulous it would look." All of the design and photo credits go to Celia Reiss Interiors. For more photos of this project read her blog post, Bathroom with a French Moroccan twist. Don't miss her most recent projects on the Celia Reiss Kitchen and Bath Blog.

One design element that I love is that the floor tile wraps up to the bath – carrying the pattern on both vertical and horizontal surfaces. This creates a very sophisticated look. The bath tile is in perfect balance with the floor tile. The antiqued wood vanity with marble top creates a sumptuous, but comfortable space.

The cement tile pattern is Cuban Heritage Design 140 with the contemporary colors Light Turquoise, Brown, and Caribbean Blue. The cement floor tiles are all 8" x 8".

I was intrigued by the vanity. Celia informed me that, “The vanity I got at the major flea market in Paris, Le Marché aux Puces. We had it shipped back. The handles say Paris on it. The sink itself is actually two sinks. The top one is like a basin without a hole, and it tips into the second sink, which has the drain.”

You can see more images of this project on her blog at Bathroom with a French Moroccan twist. There are wonderful images that detail the vanity, pulls and sink - not to mention the tile.

Cement tiles are an excellent way to add interest and style to a bathroom floor. Thank you so much for sharing your style and photos, Celia. Your bathroom is stunning and I love the personal touches. There is no better "seal of approval" than a designer using a product in his or her own home! We’re so glad we could help achieve this stunning look with our Cuban Heritage tiles.
