Inside Out Architecturals
For centuries, builders and architects have used architectural elements to set their creations apart. Those who are successful dare to use elements differently, creating new standards and opening the door for further evolution. We are fortunate to live in a time when technology and creativity merge to create more comfortable, functional, and creative spaces. Inside Out Architecturals’ provides a variety of materials to create a custom environment for every individual.
Leah Wynn, owner of Inside Out Architecturals, developed an appetite for decorative and historical tile in college while conducting research for a fireplace and tile company. This research stimulated her desire to open a store in Utah where others could experience such unique details and component parts of architectural design.
Representing over 50 unique decorative tile lines, IOA has a collection of the most intriguing tile options: from one-of-a-kind stones and large-format glass to the greatest of traditional flooring and historical ornamentals used for their charm throughout the years. They carry the handiwork of today’s artisans in metal tile, glass, and dimensional tile that are best described as “art.”
It is hard to resist a passion for tile once you visit the Inside Out showroom and view the possibilities. With over 65 years of combined experience in assisting both professionals and homeowners, the staff can provide each client with the details that will make their project sing.
“Clients need the opportunity to visualize decorative tile in its field and location before it is installed. We provide drawings and assistance in tile layout design to ensure that our clients love their selections. When a complicated layout is drawn beforehand, we can address questions and finishing details for both client and installer before the installation begins,” says Wynn.
Inside Out Architecturals is a playground, where creativity with tile can run wild. Visit the showroom and realize the full artistic possibilities of your project. Share the synergy of those who love what they do and are excited for the unique opportunities each project provides.
Terrazzo a Go-Go
This look, with its stone and glass chips in all sizes and colors, brings to fashion a wonderfully sustainable and versitile product that can be used in all areas where you would install tile.
A more subtle berry pink tone is being a favorite this year and is helping warm up palettes and give them a cheery punch of color. We are finding that variations of this color are not only being used for Accent, but also for the majority of the room.
Mad about Mattes
Soft, silky matte glazes are gracing all the sizes in tile this year, from large-format to the tiny mosaic pieces. What is also fun is the mix of textures with the matte finishes. Fabulous is the mixture of the glossy with the matte, giving surfaces extra depth and dimension.
Playfully Laid Out
Using a monochromatic color scheme and creating texture and interest through the use of different lively patterns in the same or analogous colors creates wonderfully simple yet elegant spaces. Try using a contrasting grout to give the space even more texture.
The old jewel tones of the ‘80s go bold this season. Fresh and playful pastels create interest in tile and room palettes. This includes fixtures this year, keeping everyone on their toes.
Large patterns and dimensional tiles are hitting it big as they are used more and more to create texture and interest in specific areas. These are often becoming art features for both interiors and exteriors alike.
It’s Good to Be Square
Square tiles are back, baby. They are being mixed with other shapes to create interest. We are seeing them offset and set on point in many spaces, bringing that traditional, clean balanced space back in style.
