After completing several previous projects for these homeowners, we were very excited to work with them again to create a new wine storage room. Since we had plenty of height, I suggested that we consider a ceiling feature to bring the eye up, possibly a brick or tile. The client fell in love with the Hive Etched Cream tiles in our local showroom, and the rest of our design evolved from that selection. We were initially concerned about installing such a large, thick tile on the ceiling. The Realstone Systems rep was very helpful and gave us specific instructions on how to install the tile so our tile contractor was prepared for the proper installation. The trickiest part of the installation was getting a perfect circle cut into the tile to allow for a thick chandelier canopy to be countersunk into the tile ceiling. The result was stunning! The Hive tile imparts a warm limestone feel that complements the traditional tones and materials used in other parts of the house, but the shape and dimensional facets resonate with the clean modern lines of the chandelier. We couldn’t be more pleased with the final result or the service we received.
