A homeowner in Hill Country, Texas contacted us this spring. He was looking for decorative accent tiles to grout into a stone wall that surrounds his pool. He had heard about our work from his pool salesman.
He looked through our Tile Catalogue and picked these tiles.
According to the homeowner, "the designs we saw on the website were just what we were seeking...perfect colors, suitably artistic and subtle. A great complement for our stone."
However, he wanted the tiles to be bigger: "Customer service was excellent beginning to end. The tiles shown on the website were 12" squares which were a bit small for the size of the wall. A quick call to Ellen and the problem was solved ... she informed us that they could be made in 14" squares. Moreover, she helped us understand the exterior mounting options and procedure."
Here is the image of his pool, showing two of the tiles, grouted into the stone wall.

I asked him how he likes the final product. Here's what he said: "The tiles are beautiful! They really add just the right accent to our pool. Everyone, including our pool company president, who sees the pool is suitably impressed. The tiles turned our Hill Country pool into an artistic statement. We love it!"

There are two tiles in this picture, one on either side of the waterfall.
