Classic Subway Tiles Reinvent Themselves

FROM HOUZZ.COM:White 3-by-6-inch tiles, commonly known as subway tiles, are a staple of kitchen and bathroom design. It’s no surprise that homeowners and designers both love this classic tile: It’s affordable and uncontroversial — and best of all, it’s usually in stock.
White subway tile is ever popular, but a style that has been gaining in popularity in recent years is to pair white subway tile with dark gray grout in a running-brick pattern. The resulting look defines the outlines of each tile, adding depth and interest to a space. The wider set the tiles are, the more pronounced the outline effect becomes and the bolder the look.
Gray grout is also a wise choice because it is easy to maintain, unlike white grout, which can easily yellow or stain. Here are 10 interiors with white subway tiles installed with gray grout. From kitchens to bathrooms to laundry rooms, it’s a versatile look that would fit right into many homes.”

Well Designed Houses Make Good Neighbors

A Traditional Front Porch By Soorikian-Architecture


From Houzz.comA house that is a good neighbor engages the world around it — even when it’s different. So what does that mean? How does a house engage the world, and why is it important that it do so? To engage the world, a home should have an in-between space that beckons to the passersby while providing shelter and a perch from which to watch the street. This is a space, such as a porch, from which you can see the street, and the street can see you. Creating such a space is more than good manners and neighborliness — it also helps keep a neighborhood safe, as crime typically takes place in the shadows. The in-between space is best when it’s large enough to be a room of its own. A place for comfortable chairs, a table or two, maybe even a hammock. Remember that it is a room that’s part of the home, so treat it with the same attention to detail as the other rooms. In fact, since this is the room that presents your face to the world, maybe treating it a little better than the other rooms is in order […..].
