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.

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!)

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!

Natural stone tile is a great way to create a clean, earthy and stunning look in any space. Whether it’s polished or honed, the natural variations in every slab ensure that your stone tile will truly be one-of-a-kind, unique to your home or office. Stratta, the Tile Boutique has a wide variety of natural stone from which to choose.

Here are great tips to care for all the stone tile available at Stratta - including beautiful Galway tile from Stone Impressions.

But many people shy away from using natural stone in their interior design plans because it seems difficult to maintain and hard to keep clean and undamaged. This couldn’t be further from the truth – you just need the right information!

Using the right cleaners, knowing what not to place on stone surfaces, and how to properly maintain your stone tile surfaces is important, but not difficult. Follow these simple maintenance tips for caring for stone tile, and you’ll never have to worry about keeping your one-of-a-kind stone surfaces looking well-kept and beautiful.

4 Simple Maintenance Tips to Care for Stone Tile

1. Use the right cleaning products. Make sure the cleaning products you use on your stone are marked specifically for use on natural stone surfaces. Otherwise, the cleaning products may damage or etch your stone. Also, be very careful when using glass cleaner near your stone surfaces, as it may damage the stone.

2. If you spill something, blot it up. This applies to virtually any spill, but especially for heavily acidic or basic spills like tomato sauce, vinegar, citrus juices, tea and coffee. Rubbing your stone surfaces after a spill (especially of this nature) can cause damage to the surface, as natural stone’s composition will react with acids and bases. Instead, gently blot out any stains and spills.

3. If you own a shore home, be extra diligent. Abrasive materials like sand and dirt can do damage to (and mildly erode) your stone over time. If you utilize stone tile in your shore home’s design, it has the potential to look brilliant – just be aware that you’ll have to pay special attention to its care and maintenance.

4. Every time you clean, rinse gently with clean water. Frequent damp mopping can help keep your stone tile looking brilliant and brand new. When you mop using a gentle amount of non-pH soap or natural stone-approved cleaning products, follow up with a damp mop using only clean water to eliminate any soap or cleaner residue.
