The search for something new

When it comes to interior design, I am constantly on the lookout for something new.

When you consider that whatever you are selecting is six months to a year, or more, away from installation, you want to always be selecting the latest and greatest look. On the flip side, it’s hard to know if your guess as to the next “latest and greatest” look is really a trend or a passing fad.

What I have seen popping up a lot these days – and personally love – is cement tiles. These have been creeping onto the scene for several years now, but this year, cement tiles are everywhere. Maybe it’s because larger format tiles are all the rage and cement just suites that look. Or maybe it’s because glass has run its course and we are all looking for a new texture when it comes to tile. Either way, I really love some of the cement tiles showing up in local stores and online.

Here’s a look at some of my favorites from the online tile source, Cle Tile.
