Bay Area designer Noz Nozawa loves tile, referring to it as “built-in artwork for your hard surfaces spaces.”
As Sunset Magazine’s 2020 Best Designer of the West, Nozawa knows her way around this versatile and dynamic material. She frequently uses local favorite Fireclay Tile in her bathroom and kitchen designs, like in this two-toned kid’s bathroom that offers interlocking hexagons in a “Playful Picket” pattern to invigorate the senses.
Equally compelling but with a more subdued vibe, the rectangular Caribbean Blue tile evokes harmony and balance.
Moving on to the kitchen, this backsplash of small format hexagonal tiles is busy and buzzy like a bee, yet its calming and cool palette is suggestive of the sea.
And White Mountains has a stacked and orderly feel that’s perfect for this spacious rustic kitchen.
Noz and Fireclay Tile are currently offering the Noz Design Sample Pack—eight of the designer’s favorite shades in 2x4 ceramic samples.
