We love this bathroom design from Meghan Grimbert Design. The clean white walls and furnishings in this room let the deep color of our Nola Blue Cement Tile stand out. Bringing this design home is as easy as tiling your floor and adding a few hanging plants for a splash of green to compliment the blue tile.

We’re awestruck by RT Design Studio’s use of our 2” x 8” Blue Cement Tiles in this stunning design. The room’s simplicity exemplifies how pared-back materials can transform a space with a bit of thought. The deep blue herringbone pattern with white grout gives us the perfect balance of blue and white to conjure images of Greek vistas and limestone cliffs. Adding this design to your home couldn’t be simpler.

Whether you’re getting home from the beach or coming back from the gym, this shower by Anne Berlucchi will make you feel like you’re stepping into a bungalow on the shores of Mikonos. This shower is another simple design that reminds us how sometimes, less is more. This design uses our 2” x 6” Zellige Natural White tiles and spaces them farther apart than traditional Zellige for a bold and striking look.

Of course, you don’t want to limit yourself to only having that beautiful Mediterranean look in your bathroom. This mantle space by LL Desing Co. shows us how easy it is to bring these styles into the rest of the home. This fireplace looks gorgeous with our Maya White Cement tile set against a solid blue wall. One of the things we love most about our Maya tile is its vast pattern options. You can face the tiles towards each other like we see above to make a diamond pattern or try different rotations for an astonishing variety of looks. This design looks even better with green accents, so add a large leafy plant as you see here, add a bright green painting above the mantle, or pull up your favorite green reading chair and get cozy by the fire.

What impresses us about these looks is how they showcase the versatility of the El Fenn Blue Cement Tile. Using the same material, they all achieve different looks. First, it warms our hearts to see our tile surrounded by happy diners at Eat Kubeh in New York City. The color and design of El Fenn help foster a vibrant and welcoming space that can work anywhere in your home, from the front door to the back terrace. For example, just look at how Benni Amadi Interiors used El Fenn to create a stunning bathroom. The matching shower and floor tiles stand out wonderfully against the walls and ceiling, bringing comfort and warmth to the space. You could also go the route of Garance Doré and let El Fenn embrace an entire room. This works exceptionally well if you have a rectangular tub, as you see here, to compliment the clean lines and right angles of the tile’s design. This level of boldness creates an encompassing atmosphere that will transport you to an Athenian spa the moment you walk in.

Fall might be here, but we’re fighting to keep hold of any last bit of summer we can. These Mediterranean looks help transport us to the warm shores of Greece, all using our tiles here in Texas. Tag our tiles in your projects so we can highlight your work in upcoming blogs. You can also order samples from our website to try out different patterns at home.
