From Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic, owners of Heath Ceramics—this year’s winner of the 2015 “Corporate and Institutional Achievement” National Design Award (NDA) and the beloved California home goods company whose down-to-earth appeal spans continents and generations—comes a captivating and unprecedented look at tile. Tile Makes The Room is about exceptional spaces and places—the kind you want to step into and examine every detail of—where tile is the main ingredient, though not the entire meal. Explore the dwellings of notable designers and everyday homeowners; take a look at the making of tile; gain surprising perspectives on color, pattern and texture; and take note of public installations around the world to visit and enjoy.

Get inspired by an exploration of more than fifty extraordinary projects around the world. Modern installations span the familiar to the unexpected, but in each case, tile does make the room.

Whether it’s a daring kitchen in a New York architect’s abode; the stunning ceiling of an entry foyer in Vancouver, British Columbia; hotels in Sorrento, Italy and Tokyo, Japan; gardens and patios in Los Angeles; or stunning restaurants from Los Angeles to Mexico City to Copenhagen, the book provides a world of inspiration.
