The 31 Best Residential Design Blogs Featuring Awesome Cement Tile (A Definitive List For Encaustic Tile Enthusiasts)

Granada Tile

If you’re a connoisseur of stunning interiors looking for a list of interior design blogs featuring beautiful cement tile images, practical advice on installing and incorporating cement tiles into residential and commercial projects and insightful tips on how to make the most of this popular material, you’ve come to the right place. While a Google search of “interior design blogs” may offer a staggering amount of results (the last time we checked, we received over 69,900,000 hits), we’ve done the work for you, separating the gold from the dross to showcase the 31 best home interior design blogs that feature super cement tile. As I’m sure you know, in the last few years, cement tiles have grown in popularity not only for their beauty but also for the durability and easy care that’s long made them a popular decorative element in the piazzas, public buildings and cafes of Europe, South American, North Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Yet, despite garnering the admiration of everyone who comes into contact with their remarkable beauty, many of the interior design blogs give them short shrift. In contrast, the blogs we’re presenting here offer the tips, insights and inspiration about incorporating cement tiles into residential spaces in ways that can really make a home sing. Tip: Cement tile goes by many names. When looking for articles, search for “cement tile”, “concrete tile” and “encaustic tile” to ensure you’ve covered all the bases.

Although their concrete tile coverage, which mostly focuses on new products, is limited, what they do spotlight is both beautiful and intriguing. Launched in November of 2006 by Marcus Fairs, Dezeen spotlights high-end design and new projects, many of which are still in the planning stages. Along with its founder, the first digital journalist to be awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects, this forward-thinking architectural and design site has garnered numerous awards for journalism and publishing (Time Magazine cited it as one of the “most influential forces in global design” ) Based in London, with an office in New York, Dezeen largely trains its lens on Europe’s greatest innovators. Remodelista was started by four friends — Julie Carlson, Francesca Connolly, Janet Hall and Sarah Lonsdale — with eerily similar design sensibilities. Their collective design DNA drew them to rooms that were well-designed and well-edited, beautiful and functional, with quality winning out over quality. Their 10 point manifesto, which riffs off of William Morris’s credo “Have nothing in your house you do not consider to be useful or beautiful,” favors the classic and livable over the trendy and transient and streamlined interiors over cluttered environments. The interiors showcased here are minimalist but not monastic. We’re big fans of their round-ups, found under the heading “10 Easy Pieces”, and their advice on remodeling, cached under “Remodeling 101”. Favoring well-designed products over mass-market, disposable goods, it’s no wonder that cement tiles are a mainstay of the richly-layered yet calm spaces that they feature. Design*Sponge was founded by Grace Bonney whose resume includes work as a contributing editor at Domino and House & Garden and as the Style Editor of HGTV’s Ideas Magazine. The New York Times dubbed it “Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials”. It attracts a diverse group of devoted readers across the globe reaching over 2 million readers per month. Focusing on the creative community, with the goal of making the art and design world personal, Design*Sponge believes that the idea of “home” stretches beyond our four walls, touching on the struggles, concerns and larger cultural issues that affect its readers. Its unique and personal voice focuses as much on the people involved as it does on the objects (including cement tile). Interior designer Emily Henderson has a vintage-inspired style that is approachable and attainable. The bubbly Los Angeles-based Henderson was first introduced to the world via HGTV’s Design Star. A Target Home spokesperson, she focuses on creating homes that are quirky, attainable and filled with her favorite color, blue. Her motto is “Perfection is boring; Let’s get weird.” In her hands, weird is definitely wonderful. A long time cement tile fan, Henderson used Granada Tile’s Buniel cement tiles for the patio of her Los Angeles home, the backdrop to many of the entertaining and home stories she shares. Her blog is inspired by her own experiences creating comfortable spaces, offering her best resources and tips to bring her secrets into your home. Of all of the design blogs that cover cement tile, we give the prize to Justina Blakeney’s Jungalow for being the most colorful. The L.A.-based Blakeney, author of the New York Times best selling book The New Bohemians credits her multiethnic family, her degree from UCLA in World Arts and Cultures and extensive travel for her boho aesthetic which she shares with over 1.5 million followers on social media. For Justina, decorating is about feeling free, having fun and “decorating wildly”. Her company, Justina Blakeney Home offers soft goods, rugs, furniture and wallpaper, so her followers can bring the Jungalow aesthetic — color! pattern! plants! – into their life and homes.

In addition to their adorable animated logo, Desire to Inspire brings a truly global perspective. A modern online interior design love story of sorts, founders Canadian Kim Johnson and Australian Jo Walker have never met in person. First encountering each other on Flickr in 2006, Johnson and Kim soon realized they’d found their kindred design spirits in each other. Interior design junkies, they go weak at the knees when they find that perfect room. For a bit of a break from the seriousness that can often invade the home design blogosphere, we love their Monday series, Pets On Furniture, which spotlights submissions of readers’ furry, feathered and scaled friends in their homes. Kim used a glorious cement tile in the remodel of her kitchen. An elegant and savvy take on all things design, from easy-to-wear fashion to comfortable interiors, Jacquelyn Clark, an interior designer from Toronto, has a deep and everlasting love affair with all forms of design. Her blog, Lark & Linen, which curates the best of the best from around the web, began as a passion project. In 2012, Style Me Pretty tracked her down and asked her to help launch their new site, Style Me Pretty Living. She then left to launch her own interior design business, fulfilling a lifelong dream. She shares some very helpful, informative and inspirational posts about cement tile, including a handful of projects that feature Granada Tile. Thank you, Jacquelyn Clark! Founded by Cassandra LaValle in 2007 as a way to share her stylish obsessions, Coco Kelley is a lifestyle brand devoted to fresh takes on the classics. Led by LaValle’s personal style, which is rooted in the classic, but with a strong eye for trends, and an imagination that enjoys pushing boundaries and disregarding rules, the website’s urbane eye captures the essence of effortless sophistication in a style that could be dubbed “West Coast Refined”. Their zippy motto is “Life is in the details. Style Accordingly.” Fortunately, one of those details is cement tiles, a recurring theme in the stunningly photographed tours of homes, restaurants, coffee shops, stores and hotels she shares on her blog. What started out as a small interior design blog, focusing on documenting Amber Lewis’s experience as a first-time homeowner, has since morphed into a successful design/build firm with clients from all over the country, a line of furniture and home goods, an e-commerce business, a brick and mortar retail operation, and a social media following with an audience that reaches into the millions. Lewis’s casual, laid back, Southern California-infused style, which introduces a soupçon of bohemian elegance into all of her projects cozy, eclectic, and unique. Light filled rooms, colorful textiles, natural elements, earthy textures and brushed metals define an Amber Interiors -designed home. She approaches interior design with gusto and the results (which frequently include encaustic cement tiles) are captivating. The brainchild of Kate Arends, a St. Paul-based creative and marketing consultant, Wit & Delight is everything its name promises. Dedicated to a life well-lived, the name arose from Arends’ experience of discovering and developing her personal style. After finding herself in credit card debt at age 24, surrounded by things she wasn’t sure fit into her life, she launched Wit & Delight as a way to discover who she was. Filtering her cravings through the blog, it served as a platform for documenting her style evolution. In the decade since, she’s forged a look that resonates with customers, creating products for Target aimed at hosts and party throwers. She has covered some interesting cement tile stories, including her own home.

The Savvy Home aesthetic is influenced by a love for coastal destinations, mixed with a sleek modern edge and classic American design. Savoie, who now splits her time between Montreal and New York, brings a touch of Paris to the cement tile scene.

Chung started the blog as a way to chronicle her everyday musings while transitioning from fashion design to interiors. Her articles, written in her warm, approachable voice, are grounded in the real world challenges she encounters as a busy design professional, often referencing the projects — like Pasadena’s prestigious Showcase House of Design — she’s currently working on. Chung is constantly on the lookout for new trends, including of course, cement tile (check under both cement and encaustic tile). Her coverage of the top design shows, from International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) to Coverings, is spot on. It’s true that this award is for residential design blogs, but this blog’s unique cement tile contributions merit inclusion here. This unusual blog focuses on the people driving the trends in retail design, from interior designers to visual merchandisers, providing them with up to the minute news and information.

Coco began CocoCozy with a simple goal: provide design and style inspiration with a personal and sometimes humorous approach. Her approach proved irresistible. Katy Perry and interior design guru Jonathan Adler cited CocoCozy as one of their favorite interior design blogs in InStyle magazine. In 2011, she launched a line of textiles that includes luxury pillows, throws, bedding, drapery, and rugs all designed by Coco and manufactured (all or partially) in the U.S. While she’s at it, she has a thing or two to say and share about cement tile, with quite a few images we haven’t seen before!

Umansky draws from her architectural background to create a cohesive, collaborative work environment among the design, building and installation teams.

Pulp is a collaboration between two experienced female designers, Beth Dotolo and Carolina V. Gentry, based in Seattle and Dallas respectively, specializing in defining their clients’ personal styles and transforming their homes into spaces that feel uniquely personalized.

Their insightful “Splendid Living” approach ensures that the results are both beautiful and functional — just as useful for entertaining large groups as for enjoying a book and cup of coffee on a weekend morning or wrangling small kids in the before-school rush. As you might imagine, they have some interesting things to say about cement tiles. Albert Hadley wrote, “Design is coming to grips with one’s real lifestyle, one’s real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well-being.” It’s upon this sentiment that Massachusetts-based Julie Richard, “a slightly aesthetically obsessed interior designer, design instructor, blogger and mommy” founded her blog. Shelter ranges over all aspects of design from interiors to architecture, art to fashion, stationery to landscaping. The through-line that runs through her design sensibility is one that, although classically rooted, is modern, colorful and always a bit unexpected. Her posts highlight how design can enhance one’s life, both functionally and aesthetically. “I love, love, love all things beautiful and functional,” she gushes, including, of course, cement tiles. DeaVita.net — “living well” — is a comprehensive online magazine.

Considered one of the internet’s benchmark of good taste, it’s an inspiring source of original ideas on the latest products and trends in modern architecture and interior design. Not surprisingly they have some very interesting content on cement tiles that encompass the practical as well as the purely beautiful and inspirational. Founded in 1987 as a non-profit charitable organization, the Tile Heritage Foundation is dedicated to promoting an awareness and appreciation of ceramic surfaces in the United States, serving the need for a historical perspective regarding all ceramic surfacing materials, both past and present. In addition to aiding in the education of the general public about the rich and varied history of tile, the organization has become a major voice in the preservation of existing installations of rare and unusual ceramic surfaces while enhancing the visibility of contemporary tile work as well. While the use of the word “ceramic” may throw cement tile enthusiasts for a loop, in this case it encompasses all tiles made from variations of clay, whether fired or dried. Apart from being extraordinarily knowledgeable about ceramic tile, they make available “La Cubana”, a 41-page full color book of historic cement tile designs made in Cuba by a large factory founded in 1903.
