Tile and Tapered Columns!

We headed north to Charlottesville yesterday and spent the day trying to find some stone pieces for the chimney top and column caps.  We pretty much confused ourselves and rather than narrowing things down, we got more choices all of which require longer lead times than we currently have available.

But it was another successful few hours at Sarisand Tile.  With owner Pete Sandfort's help, I made some final decisions on downstairs flooring as well as all three bathrooms.  Still not quite settled are the half bath, laundry room sink area and the utility room dog sink/shower.

I'm like a scattered kid in the candy store when looking at tile.  I see so many possibilities that I have a hard time making a final decision.  Pete was invaluable and I felt like he was really listening to what I had to say..... it was a pleasure working with him.

Here's a sneak peak...

Downstairs Tile Floors (funny that I saw this tile over a year ago at Halpins in BR and snapped this photo of it then)....since I was still drawn to it when I saw it again yesterday, I decided to risk it being a little dark and go with it.  It's a porcelain tile with the design done digitally so there aren't exact repeats in the tiles)

The stone crew has been doing a good job on the columns!!

Now if we can just get that roof!!!


  1. It's all looking wonderful!! I absolutely love the stonework... AND your selection of tiles. So similar to what we have put in This Old House and the house previous to this.

    Great job, guys! .....

  2. love the stone column work. i have a hard time visualizing tile until it's all laid!

  3. It's really coming together, Grace!

  4. The column work looks gorgeous! Those tile stores are like being in a candy shop! So many wonderful choices. I want , I want, I want!
