Field Trip: Ann Sacks

On Tuesday my Materials class went to Ann Sacks, a tile and stone showroom.  It was beautiful! I could have spent hours walking around the space, drooling over all the tiles they have to offer.  We saw many collections from the talented Barbara Berry and Michael S. Smith.  So what am I waiting for??  Here's the showroom!


There's walls are all exposed brick which is a great back drop for the shelves and tile samples.  I didn't know where to look, everything was so pretty!




This would be perfect for a feature wall of a powder room:

love this Barbara Barry tile. It's simple, classic, chic and has lots of texture.
This farm sink is all marble. It's beautiful! But if this is your style, know you have rinse it out if there are colored liquids, or they'll stain.

I just adore all these mosaic tiles. I would die to put one of these as a backsplash or a detail behind a cook top range.


This was one of my favorite tiles.  It's simple but it has texture.  I think it'd be a perfect for for my all white dream kitchen (:

This is all the same marble material, just running different directions in order to create some visual interest. 


Do you like it? Or is it too much?


I wish I could have taken all of you with me to the showroom. It's gorgeous! I've learned I love tile, flooring, and countertops. There's so many options, and they're always able to customize in order to get just the look you're going for (:


Have you ever spent hours in a tile shop?

  2. Building the kitchen countertops of your dream makes sense if you are going to be spending a lot of time in this house, and therefore, this kitchen. Its long been recognised that bathrooms are a great selling point for a property.

  22. You get to go on such cool field trips! I went to school for interior design but we were stuck in Corvallis so there weren't a lot of field trip opportunities! The tile stores are so amazing! I have never been to Ann Sacks but have been meaning to go in Portland. Your photos have inspired me to make a trip ASAP!
