Renovating 1930’s Art Deco Home – Local Project Selection

We often meet with clients renovating old period homes…

It’s important to learn as much as possible about the character defined by the era of the home you’re renovating.  Colour schemes and design elements are important when renovating a period home, so if are unsure of the right direction to take, it’s best to consult a professional designer.  Put your trust in someone who has the knowledge to help you make the right selection for your home and love the result!

Today we look at a CONCEPT CONSULT with Tracy, resident Interior Designer at TILE junket, and her involvement with our client’s ensuite selection for their 1930’s home.  Over to Tracy…

The Project

Today’s clients are renovating their 1930’s home; they are starting with their ensuite.  The ensuite is on the smaller size, so we had to keep this in mind when searching for tiles, especially ones with lots of pattern and colour.

The Design Brief

Our clients wanted to be sympathetic to the 1930’s style, which is classed as art deco.  Keeping in mind the 1930’s style and old charm left in the home, our clients love to be different.  They wanted an accent wall in their shower which will be separated from the rest of the bathroom by a glass wall.

The Selection

Since the space is small, the couple chose to splurge on a marble herringbone patterned floor!  We also chose a bevelled light grey subway tile for the rest of the walls and a hexagon tile with blue and grey patterns; this will be used at the accent wall.

Making the right interior selection for a period home can be a beautiful way to pay homage to our past and share it with future generations.  We hope to share with you the end result when the project is complete!
