Modern Rustic…hmmm

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Can these two styles work together?  Can you fuse modern and rustic in a single, unified space?  Natalie Guenette and her design team of 6 at La Cuisine in Sudbury, ON, have done just that, merging both styles together as they designed the kitchen space for the 2014 Sudbury Kinsmen Lottery Home.  Combining modern design and style in the cabinets with the rustic elements of weathered, self-adhesive barnboard (YES, self-adhesive!) for the bar face and backsplash, the Kinsmen kitchen is clean, fresh and open with the barnboard features of warmth and earthiness to ground it.  Give us a call to discuss how our self-adhesive barnboard can work for you!

The Elegance of Pearlamina

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

When the Best Western Plus Brant Park Inn and Conference Centre in Brantford, ON made the decision to update their lobby they chose the Pearlamina Bronze tile to add that touch of sophistication and elegance to welcome their guests.  Consider this graceful, hand laid classic tile, produced from the Capis shell, to give your design a charming and refined quality.


Fireplace Envy!

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

When Jason, a design architect from Canada’s leading retail architectural firm, wanted to update his condo, he designed a contemporary fireplace to add visual interest to the small space.  He selected SlateFlex #600 Silver Nature to give his design natural texture and punch. With the addition of glass panels flanking the electric fireplace the room appears double in size.  With Jason’s design savvy and a unique product from Surface Innovation, he has transformed his condo into a relaxing oasis.  Check out the room before he started.  Awesome job Jason!Jason-D-Before-med

Backsplash Bling

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Cathy was looking for a little “splash” for her backsplash in the kitchen and our Pearlamina AP-06 tile gave her the punch she was looking for.  Easy to install, the tiles went on quickly and with a couple coats of Benjamin Moore Stays Clear Satin, no worries about a little overspray when dad or the kids are doing dishes. Available in additional patterns and colours.  Click the link to Pearlamina.

Jillian Harris, one of Canada’s celebrity designers, recently selected Surface Innovation’s stunning Capiz Shell wall tile, Pearlamina, for a custom bathroom wall covering in a prestigious lottery home, through our BC dealer, The ECO Floor Store.

“My favourite space in the PNE Prize Home is the romantic ensuite. We wanted to design a luxurious spa-like retreat for the homeowners. Our choice of environmentally friendly surfaces, from the understated elegance of the capiz shell wallpaper to the timeless opulence of the marble, creates a space that is truly special.” – Jillian Harris
