One of those partners is Stone Impressions, an elite artisan stone tile design company based out of San Diego, California. We love Stone Impressions – not just for their outstanding products, but that all their designs and products are made in-house in their own San Diego production facility and design center.

From the Stone Impressions website:

Based in San Diego, California, StoneImpressions creates stunning patterns, motifs, murals, flooring, accents and listellos on natural stone. Not a decal or a heat transfer, the StoneImpressions’ process produces an image with greater depth and clarity, and a better range of color and consistency than hand painting.

StoneImpressions creates a captivating image on any porous surface, such as natural stone or cement. Choose from a growing library of hundreds of images or create a completely custom look. Our products decorate kitchen backsplashes, master baths, offices, libraries and dens, entryways for wineries and office buildings, and serve as accent pieces and borders for all parts of the home.

Stone Impressions is founded and operated by Melinda East, who is not only a talented designer but a wonderful person. We utilize Stone Impressions’ beautiful stone tile in many of our projects, and can be seen in our state-of-the-art Stratta, the Tile Boutique showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

What Inspires Us: Gorgeous Ammonite Fossil

At Stratta, the Tile Boutique, we are constantly inspired by the world around us. Nature often presents us with gifts that are more beautiful than anything we could hope to create. That’s why Stratta is committed to sustainable design, “green” design strategies, and renewable resources.

Case in point: check out this stunning close-up photograph of a multi-colored ammonite. Ammonite is the scientific term for “those beautiful ribbed spiral fossil thingies” – but whatever you call them, they are absolutely breathtaking up close.

(You can find more beautiful inspiration like this on Stratta’s Pinterest page!)

ammonite-close-up-fossil

Did you know that ammonites are ancient cephalopods, which means they are distant relatives of the octopus and squid? Pretty cool. Ammonites serve as design inspiration for all kinds of tile and interior design projects: glass tile, stone tile, mosaics, and even tile and other surfaces made from fossilized remains and ammonites themselves!

Stratta Wishes You a Happy Mother’s Day

Stratta, the Tile Boutique loves blending sustainable resources with beautiful design. And nothing is more sustainable and beautiful than our moms. (That was a little sappy – but it’s Mother’s Day, you can’t blame us!)

We’d like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, and women who sacrifice so much to care for us and those around us. This beautiful quote about mothers from Dorothy C. Parker sums up our feelings perfectly.
