Custom Terracotta Staircase in Western Living

Posted on January 22nd, 2019


Our latest editorial in this month’s Western Living is a beautiful example of thoughtful design in an area that is often overlooked, the staircase. Designer Ami McKay of Pure Design chose a custom pattern from our terracotta specialist, Tabarka to elevate her client’s stair risers. In a house of bright whites and plenty of natural light, this stunning tile pops with its subtle design lending Spanish flare to this family’s home.
