Details of a Simple Craftsman
By AlysEdwards | 5/11/2021
Clean simple lines and timeless charm are the key to designing your dream Craftsman inspired space. Built in elements like bookcases are a signature of the Craftsman interior. In a bathroom, consider adding little appeal by tiling the back of the built in shelves. Here we selected the Rock Glamorous Animate 2" x 6" to complement the same marble selected in the tone on tone octagon for the bathroom floor. A stained glass window is a great way to show old school artistry. To add a centuries old flair with a modern twist, try incorporating a stained glass mosaic like Gigi’s Groovy Stix as a kitchen backsplash or a shower wall feature. The beauty of the Craftsman style is that it showcases the craftsmanship of artists through the simplicity of natural materials. Straight lined wide trims such as wood molding showcase the workmanship and are often used throughout this style. You can also achieve this by layering natural stone moldings like the the Anamite cornice, which can be used as a base or crown. The beautiful rippled texture of Abitare La Terra’s wall tile makes it a great selection for shower walls or a kitchen backsplash, and provides texture to your space. A fireplace is a living rooms' central feature in a Craftsman style home. Create visual interest by using a carved stone like the Suave Due Canapa on the face of the fireplace. The subtle detail of the linear lines are beautiful on their own or incased in a wood surrounding. Round out your design by adding some greenery to enhance the earth tones. The Craftsman style stands the test of time, simple and timeless, yet full of endless detail.
