Remodeling a Mid Century Modern home doesn’t mean you have to stick with the original plans, but considering the integrity of the design will create unity. Redesigning a Master Bathroom can be challenging to integrate both masculine and feminine touches, but this Mid Century inspired design has both guys and dolls swooning.
With New York sophistication, recreate this look by incorporating a linear veining marble, like Silver Cream Marble, and create a wall of mosaics in Zafu Silk to make this circular mirrors pop. Be sure to give the 60’s a nod, and repeat the circle motif by incorporating a Sputnik light fixture.
You’ll be toasting your Manhattans with a Mid Century remodel like this Master Bath!

Because basketweave mosaics come on mesh-backed sheets, they’re surprisingly simple to install. Even around curved lines and cabinet corners, basketweaves can work right in. Superior installers can make amazing canvases with these unique patterns, as you can see in this stunningly curvy kitchen.
We love the look of this bathroom that pays homage to the home’s time period in a thoroughly modern translation. The basketweave mosaic ‘rug’ is a lovely focal point and a fun contrast to the buoyant sea spray blue wall tiles. Married with crisp black accent tiles, black cabinets and white surfaces, this installation is quite memorable.
Convinced yet? Basketweave mosaics are great additions to your home, no matter the size or style of your space. And with Mission Stone & Tile’s current special on a seemingly endless selection of basketweaves to chose from, you have the perfect opportunity to weave in these beautiful mosaics wherever you’d like.

Here’s another idea for basketweave mosaics. These textural, dimensional patterns offer nice accents and great touches in the kitchen. This upscale homeowner designed an almost artwork-like backdrop for the stovetop, framed with a liner amidst coordinating field tiles. See more here.
Of course, few things update a kitchen like a tile backsplash, and a basketweave backsplash is a real trendsetter. Basketweave mosaics come in a wide variety of colors and combinations, so you’ll easily find the right match for popular granite countertops.

How to find a discontinued tile to complete your home improvement project.
How to Find Discontinued Tile
This week I went to a jobsite to help a builder friend of mine who was repairing a shower for a client. His client had a shower with half walls, and glass enclosing the shower to the ceiling. They desired to completely enclose the shower, and went ahead with the construction problem without first considering that the additional tile may no longer be available. The tile that is currently installed in the shower was also a very difficult to find size– a 16×24 gold limestone, that is 3/4″ thick. After searching through our tile store bone yard, and finding no solution, we decided to take the following steps:
We were able to salvage a scrap of the tile that was removed in the construction process and send it off to several vendors. We were able to find a good color match, but the size was not the same. Our solution was to insert a decorative border, at the transition, all the way around the shower (some people refer to this as an accent band or decorative border) to camouflage the new size difference, and slightly different shade in color.
If we can ever help you solve your tile problem, please contact us and we will search high and low for you!
