Villa Bonita Project Reveal with Fireclay Tile

Today, I am so excited to reveal more about our recently completed Villa Bonita Project, a custom build in St. George, Utah. Villa Bonita is a classic home with clean modern lines and layers of organic textures. We used warm woods, steel windows, and incredible tile from a favorite source, Fireclay Tile. Fireclay tiles are made to order and handcrafted for a finish that makes a space. I wish you could see these rooms in person to experience for yourself how the Fireclay tile adds dimension. It’s so pretty. And although they have the best selection of shapes and color, even their simple white subway tiles elevate the design. Take a peek below to see how we used their tiles throughout this build. For more, read this Villa Bonita Progress post and check back soon for more details about each space. Enjoy!

Kitchen Nook

In this kitchen nook, we wanted to add depth to the fresh white walls and warm rustic wood. We chose the prettiest Fireclay tile, Ogee Drop in Pitch Black. The crisp black defines the space, gives it a polished look, and compliments the black steel windows. The shape and sheen adds texture and interest.

Although this is an open concept home, we like the idea of the tile creating a defined dining space in the nook. The tile also obviously makes clean up so easy.



Master Bathroom

Two different Fireclay tiles create a high-end look in the master bathroom. We chose 2″ x 6″ Field Tile in White Wash laid in a timeless herringbone pattern. On the shower floor we used a 2″ x 2″ tile in French Linen. Layering these beautiful neutrals creates interest and depth and ties in with the other patterned cement tile in the space.


Bathroom 1

In the guest bathroom we played with pattern to create wow factor. We kept the floor monochromatic for a clean modern look but decided to use Fireclay’s 3″x12″ Field Tile in White Wash placed in a cross hatch pattern for an updated twist on traditional subway tile. Keeping to a simple color palette of white, washed wood, and black accents, puts the emphasis on pattern and texture for a beautiful organic vibe.

For the shower floor, we kept the same White Wash color, but went with a smaller 2″ x 2″ tile. The color creates a seamless transition, but the shape change adds another pretty layer of texture.


Bathroom 2

Oh this Ogee Drop tile in White Wash is so good. It creates a white bathroom that is full of texture and anything but basic. I love how it turned out here when used from floor to ceiling. I also like how it’s a pattern repeat from the kitchen nook. It makes the house feel cohesive.


Powder Bathroom

In the powder bath we worked to create interest while keeping the space fresh and neutral. We transformed a traditional shape into a statement by alternating Fireclay’s 2″x6″ Field Tile in White Wash and French Linen. Both the pattern and the high quality, hand-crafted tiles make the space unique.

In Villa Bonita, we wanted a beautiful organic feel where textured neutrals created the interest of the design. The handcrafted tiles from Fireclay helped us achieve the aesthetic we were after. The color and shape are seemingly simple, but the quality and craftsmanship create dimension and the high-end feel we needed for a custom build.
