{within-spiration | metal accents}

Happy May!
We are currently in love with metal accents everywhere. Our favorite spot right now is to put them in floors. Just a little metal can go a long way! Take a look at these inspiration images. I love how such a crisp gold can really offset the warmth of a limestone, marble, or wood floor. Gorgeous.
It's not that difficult to recreate these looks. But you will need a tile installer that you trust. Some companies sell the metal already mixed with the stone. You can also find some delicate trims to finish off installations.

You can find metal accent tiles in sheets like these from United Tile:

There are also many vendors that sell steel liners that you can purchase. Daltile sells them, click here. You can also find them here at Marazzi Tile.

Another way to go would be full on metal tiles...gorgeous!
The exterior of this studio was finished using metal tiles. An acid wash gave them a blue hue for a compelling ombre effect.:

Look at this insanely gorgeous tiles from AKDO:

Have a fantastic Monday!
