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.

Tiling Trends ‘19
This year the hot tile color is blue. From the deep dark, glossy, sexy blues to the white that is ever so slightly blue. This psychologically soothing color of nature is ever-present.
Retro Goes Art Deco
The decorative art style of the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes and strong colors, has hit the tile world hard this year. Elegant hues with classy shapes are bringing the glam back to all wall spaces, flooring, and focal points.

Soft, silky matte glazes are on all tile sizes this year, from slab to large-format to 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 tile, giving surfaces extra depth and dimension.
