Design Tips On Using Farmhouse Style Patterned Tile In Your Home!
The iconic Fixer-Upper Style created by Joanna Gaines is something we can all agree has that combination of fun and timeless! Mixing different colors, patterns and textures is always a must when it comes to designing an interior space. Our clients are mostly inspired by farmhouse style elements, but they also want to go out of the box and make it fit with the style of their home! So we gathered a couple of tried and true Modern Farmhouse tile designs that we featured in our renovations that you can purchase to recreate the same look in your home!

CREATING NATURAL TRANSITIONS IN A FARMHOUSE STYLE KITCHEN:
This kitchen served as a connecting space between the dining, living & family rooms to create an open concept. Because of that, we decided on a traditional white arabesque porcelain tile as the main back splash and this gorgeous porcelain patterned tile (that kept the same arabesque motif theme, but elevated!) for around the vent hood. The white background creates a seamless look between the two tiles, and having the distressed look with large gray arabesque and black flower detail was a perfect way to incorporate modern farmhouse style elements into the space! Using the black, white and gray patterned tile only behind the vent hood was our way of creating a focal point. By framing the pattern tile on both sides with the traditional arabesque we were able to keep the back splash simple yet pretty. Using these two different installation techniques side by side adds subtle interest to the overall design!
PLAY WITH PATTERNS USING CLASSIC FARMHOUSE STYLE COLORS ON A FLOOR:
We kept to a classic 8×8 square porcelain tile with a white, beige and dusty blue color palette to give this kids bathroom a fresh look! Using this classic color palette is true to the farmhouse style, and it also allows for all kinds of additional accent pieces to be added in seamlessly (like a blue hexagon accent tile in the shower!). The kaleidoscope pattern repeats throughout the floor, but doesn’t feel busy. Because this pattern tile has mainly a muted background with the pops of blue in the center, it flows effortlessly while still being fun for a kids bathroom!
INCORPORATE THE HOME’S ORIGINAL CHARACTER IN A RUSTIC FARMHOUSE KITCHEN:
This home was built in the 1920’s and had an addition that was originally a barn. The bones of the house were great, but the layout needed reworking along with some TLC to bring it back to life. We knew this house screamed classic Americana Style and this distressed blue star back splash is a tribute to that. Our client loved the look of the farmhouse style reclaimed wood and wanted elements of that throughout the space. This gorgeous tile has that hand crafted look that serves as a stunning backdrop to her new hand made wood counter top!
