modwalls Designer Spotlight: blake eames design
With her background in art and painting and love and appreciatation for color, modwalls® is happy to put the spotlight on colorful artist/designer Blake Eames of blake eames design in Lexington, KY.
Blake has a keen eye for color (which we love, of course), and began her business in 1997 focusing on color consulting, re-purposed furniture and paintings, though she soon found her niche in interior design.
We love Blake’s design philosophy that, “Every client is unique. I do not have a cookie cutter look to my work… Their home should reflect their own personality and flair.” We couldn’t agree with you more, Blake. That’s exactly why we stock distinctive glass tile in solid colors and tile blends that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s also why our Brio® Custom Tile Blends are such a fabulous option (if we do say so ourselves). The custom color options are endless, which is great for cool designers like Blake who proudly states, “You won’t find a Blake Eames Design Project without color infused into the plan.”
Blake used one of our popular stock Brio® blends, Cool Pool, and modwalls® lovely, glossy Lush® 3×6 subway tile in the color Sky, in one of her most recent projects. We were pretty jazzed when we saw the pix from the Jennings residence, and this super fun shower is really the kicker!
We love when designers mix old and new, and Blake’s designs are a perfect example. The Jennings residence was a charming 1920s era cottage that Blake gave an entire facelift. All of the materials had come together and Blake was still considering wall finishes, “I immediately saw glass tile in the color of the sky. I had come across modwalls® in my search and realized I had my dream source for beautiful glass and unique tiles… (I) had samples to show my client within days.”
Tile the color of the sky, you say? Yep, modwalls® has got some options for you. Blake continued, “It was a matter of which tile to choose from now, not, ‘Am I going to be able to find what I want?’!”
And what does her client think about the new tile?
“She wanted this home to sing… and sing it does! When you walk in your eye is immediately drawn to the Sky blue glass backsplash tile in the kitchen… then you get a glimpse at the Brio® Cool Pool blend in the bath… it takes you to the beach where the ocean and the sky morph into one amazing color… it’s spectacular!”
We’re looking forward to sharing more exciting installations from this talented designer in the future. Please follow this link to contact Blakes Eames of Blake Eames Design: http://blakeeamesdesign.com/
