Soothing Slate and Stone

When Ashton Ford, principle at AshtonForDesign, was tasked with revitalizing a historic 1907 Craftsman home in Portland, OR, she set out to celebrate and preserve the original early 20th century style while also creating a modern and relaxing home for her client. Working with a smaller footprint for both the main and master bathrooms, Ford was able to visually expand the space using contrasting patterns and colors from Pental Surfaces’ extensive tile collection.

Pental’s UP tile in Black was used for both the main and master bathrooms and throughout the floor of the updated mudroom. “I’m not one to exhaust a product on multiple projects,” says Ford, “but I would use this product over and over again. It has a great range of color and application.“ From floor to wall, the stone-look of Up tile in a large 12×24 size creates the smooth and clean look of slate with the durability of porcelain that is suitable for high traffic areas. Warm, mid-century wood tones that move throughout the remodel are echoed in the vanities of both bathrooms. Matte black hardware, sconces and plumbing fixtures reflect the dark tones of the tile and lend an industrial and modern aesthetic. For a shower that naturally massages the feet and creates a serene and spa-like atmosphere, Island Stone Pebble tile in Medan Charcoal was used on the floor, bench and alcove in the master bathroom.
