Amalena Meadow Cement Tiles Celebrate Global Design

Villa Lagoon Tile designers bring a global perspective to every new tile design, finding inspiration in the shapes, patterns, colors and textures of different parts of the world. Sometimes, that inspiration results in the merging of influences to create one-of-a-kind patterns in handcrafted cement tile. The Amalena tile series blends the bold energy of Cuban design with the intricate details of antique Turkish rugs, making it perfect as an accent wall by a soaking tub or an outdoor living room.

Lively floral and geometric forms that are the hallmark of Cuban tile design marry with delicate domes, arches, and minarets that epitomized the architecture and textiles of the Ottoman Empire. The result is a lush, tropical vibe with a twist.

Because the Amalena series takes inspiration from Turkish textiles, it is also an ideal choice for creating the classic rug-like effect with a border tile surrounding a field tile on the floor. This type of installation creates a sense of drama in both hospitality and residential projects.

A single row of border tiles will add a finishing touch to a cement tile floor, but if the room is large enough, a border made up of two, three or even more rows of tile can create an opulent and unforgettable impression.

The Amalena series is available in a choice of four colorways that combine our most vivid South Beach Colors. Or, make the look completely your own with our easy-to-use cement tile design tool that allows you to customize your color palette.

These dynamic tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Similar to natural stone, each cement tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product. Installing cement tiles is similar to installing natural stone, with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.

Cement Tile: A Statement-Making Solution for a Historic Home Remodel

Julie and Barret Blondeau wanted to make a statement when they updated the bathroom in their 90-year-old home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. To achieve their design goals, they selected cement tile from the Caprice collection from Villa Lagoon Tile to replace the outdated flooring in their bathroom.

Julie was kind enough to chat with us about the new bathroom design and her experience with our cement tile. 

What prompted you to start the bathroom renovation? What were some of the aesthetic design choices that went into creating this bath?

In November of 2017, we bought a 90-year-old home with lots of beautiful historical detail. We wanted to update the house to match our style in a way that would not conflict with its unique character. When we were ready to remodel the bathroom, I knew I wanted to make a statement, and my instinct was it needed to be the flooring. 

I found Villa Lagoon Tile cement tiles and loved the look. I also thought the artisan look would blend seamlessly with the rest of the house. I tend to go neutral with walls, floors, etc., and almost went with the grey and white tiles, but I kept coming back to this black and white design. It’s a perfect fit in our bathroom and makes a beautiful design statement, but it’s also timeless, which is one of the things I love about cement tile. 

Have you used cement tiles before? What do you like about cement tiles? What did you find different about working with cement tiles? 

I’ve never used them before. I like the thickness and the fact that each tile is unique with slight color variations, which is the sign of an artisan-made product. Stone and Tile Works by Manny laid down the cement tile floor and did a beautiful job!

I’ve learned that while cement tile requires a little more care during installation and cleaning, they are made to last. I am also very pleased with how well they clean up, especially because the bathroom is regularly used by my teenage daughters. 

Would you recommend Villa Lagoon cement tiles? Why or why not?

Yes, I would! They are beautiful and unique and there’s a wide range of styles and colors. Everyone who I dealt with at Villa Lagoon Tile are truly cement tile experts and couldn’t have been more helpful and pleasant.

Tell us a little more about your business.

We have lived in Louisiana all our lives and love our area–we take a lot of pride in making it a better place. We enjoy helping others make it their place, too. We own Cottonwood Properties and Realty in Baton Rouge, LA, and we handle both rentals and investment properties. Barret is a Broker/Realtor and I am a Realtor. We are passionate about home life, and the benefit of working with us is that we are involved in every aspect of real estate, so we bring a lot of knowledge to the table.

California Restaurant Glows with Villa Lagoon Tile

Red O Restaurant LogoCement tile floor, from Villa Lagoon Tile, at Red O's new Newport Beach, CA location.

Rick Bayless, the celebrity chef and host of the Emmy-nominated show “Mexico: One Plate At A Time” on PBS, has developed the menu at Red O Restaurant (think red onion) at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA. This is Red O’s second location, the first being in Los Angeles. Another location in St. Monica will be opening soon. Red O restaurant features a dramatic interior paired with high-end Mexican food. Designer Martin Lawrence Bullard chose Villa Lagoon Tile’s “Castle” pattern cement tile for much of the floor. The tile was made in Mexico so it was a fitting combination. Rumor has it that the food is really special and we wished we lived closer!

People often ask us if our tile is suitable for commercial spaces. Cement tile is WONDERFUL in commercial spaces as it often brings “heart & soul” to an interior, and with proper sealants, the constant foot traffic should be no problem.

Our friend Adam Esparza at ALE Tile created this short video that outlines a few of the reasons why cement tile is such a great material to use in high-traffic hospitality spaces. 

As you can see from Adam’s demonstration, cement tiles are made with a thick layer of pigment that is made to last! No printed-on color here.

Bringing the Colors of Summer Home All Year Long

If summer is your jam, take your cues from these hues for your home to make every day feel like summer vacation:

Summer color #1: Yellow It’s no surprise that sunny hues are the best way to feel summery. Bring the summer sunshine indoors by adding a touch of gold to walls, floors, and decor. If saturated, bright yellow is a little too much summer, go deeper into golden tones or use yellow as an accent color to brighten any room in a more subtle way.

The deep yellow cement tiles in the Colorful Patchwork Collection bring a subtle glow to this cheerful bathroom.

The hints of gold in this colorful installation of large-format Troika triangular cement tiles imbue this restaurant space with a bright and sunny atmosphere.

Inspired by the colors and patterns of Cuban tile designs, the Tango Vals tiles showcase a summery, energetic point of view.


Did you know summer colors can be mixed and matched in limitless combinations using our Tile Design Tool! Give it try, it’s fun and so easy to use.


Summer color #2: Green From fresh and minty to deep and grassy, we agree with Paul Simon that the greens of summer make you think all the world’s a sunny day. 

This cool green and gold custom tile installation at Phillipe Stark’s SLS Hotel in Las Vegas brings the perfect eclectic vibe to an outdoor pool and bar.

Green hexagonal cement tiles add sophisticated and summerlike pop of color in this cafe.

Rippling with free-flowing color, these green tiles from the Villa Lagoon Tile Watercolor Series evoke the play of sunlight on a body of water. 


Summer color #3: Coral. Living Coral was named the Pantone Color of the Year 2019, and it’s the perfect shade for summer. This warm, lively hue brings a playful vibe to outdoor patios as well as any indoor living or hospitality space.

This dining room exudes warmth and elegance, emphasized by the earth tones of the Lisbon Primero tile on the floor.

Every day is a vacation in the Caribbean with this brightly-colored, island-inspired patio space.

Bursting with summer color, Caprice June cement tile brings the outdoors inside with details inspired by plants and flowers.

“Here on the Gulf coast, we do feel a little of that endless summer vibe,” said Melissa Adams Dillon, who leads the Villa Lagoon Tile design team at their Gulf Shores, AL US headquarters.”That’s why I think about yellows, greens and corals for indoor and outdoor decor for anyone who wants a space that feels like summer all year long!”

Cement Tile: Not Just for the Floor Anymore!

HGTV Magazine Cober july/August 2018We at Villa Lagoon Tile are all aflutter about the current issue of HGTV Magazine. In this July/August 2018 edition, you will be sure to spot the hippest little mid-century pad that just so happens to rock our cement tile! Owners Dave and Brennen together with the online design company Laurel & Wolf reimagined their condo right into the 21st century.

Pick up or download a copy today so you can tour this amazing home!

Our favorite feature of this home (yes, totally biased!) is the 10ft long kitchen peninsula dressed in our Solid “Seaside Blue” Hexagonal Cement Tile. The natural tonal variation seen from tile to tile introduces an organic element to the space’s modern design by giving it movement and character. We absolutely love to see our tile on verticle surfaces like this! In fact, both homes in the “House Tours” section of the current HGTV Magazine feature cement tile on the wall.  It’s a great way to up your design game by reinventing the boring backsplash or highlighting the sometimes overlooked design elements in your space. For your next project consider adding cement tile to a bar front, fireplace, alcoves, stair risers, or hello, who doesn’t love a good feature wall?  Villa Lagoon Tile can make a thinner version of almost all of our tiles making the verticle application of cement tile even easier! HGTV Magazine House Tours article image from page 106 featuring our teal hexagonal cement tile on the from of the kitchen bar.


To help inspire your next project we’ve put together this collection of installations starring our cement tile on the backsplash and beyond!

Using Cement Tiles Outdoors: The Importance of Using a Top-Coat Sealant with UV Filters

sls-green-patchwork-pool-vlt

Introduction
The presence of cement tiles as floor and wall covering indoors is established and continues to grow as architects and designers find new uses that enhance their projects. To a lesser extent, the uses of these versatile, colorful tiles outdoors are slowly being discovered. Their use on building facades and walls creates a work of art that compliments the building architecture and design. Cement tiles are prominently used outdoors in a few hotels such as the SLS Miami and SLS Las Vegas as pool decking. The stunning addition of patterned tiles in those areas creates a bright colorful background to the pool designs as bathers and sun worshippers relax sipping Pina Coladas.

An important factor to consider when using cement tiles is the use of the appropriate sealant for indoor or outdoor installations. We have conducted tests that provide clear evidence that the use of a top coat with UV filters is vital to maintaining the vibrant colors in cement tiles. Without the UV filters, the colors can noticeably fade in as little as four to five months.

Testing Method

stain-proof
Dry Treat Stain-Proof Impregnating Sealant

vlt-grout-release
VLT Grout Release & Top-Coat Sealant

A colorful cement tile was selected and prepared by marking off spaces where two sealant treatments would be applied. A Control section on the tile with no sealant was allotted. The test articles were:

  • Dry-Treat – Stain-Proof, a premium Impregnating/Penetrating sealant.
  • Villa Lagoon Grout Release and Top-Coat Sealant, a co-polymer top-coat sealant containing UV Filters.

The products were applied as directed by the manufacturer. Two coats of the VLT Grout Release/Top-Coat were applied and allowed to dry for 24 hours. The Dry-Treat/Stain Proof was applied in succession 3 times and allowed to dry for 24 hours.

On May 9, 2016, the tile were placed outdoors in an open space, no shade or covering. The tile was exposed to all weather elements present in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The weather there is typically hot, humid, lots of sun and lots of rain. Temperatures ranged from 70 F to 95 F with heat indices of >105 F. The tile was not maintained or cared for in any manner. The tile was often in direct all-day sunshine from May 9, 2016, thru September 21, 2016. Periodic rain and thunderstorms occurred, no hail or other weather events were present.

Results

  • Initially, on the test tile just after application of the Dry-Treat a slight change color (enhancement) was noticed but faded over the course of the 24 hour drying period.
  • The VLT Grout Release/Top-Coat Sealant showed a marked color enhancement that continued through the entire test period.
  • The test tile was brought inside on Sep 21, 2016, after 19 weeks+ 2 days exposure.
  • The tile was allowed to cool to room temperature prior to observations being recorded.
  • The test (Treated) tile was compared to an identical tile (Control) that had been stored in a sealed box in a warehouse. It had never been exposed to sunlight.
  • The Treated tile showed obvious effects of weather. On the Treated tile, the Control section where no sealant was applied showed fading in all the colors except for the white portions of the tile.
  • The VLT Grout Release/Top-Coat treated section of the tile showed no fading and the color remained vibrant and rich.
  • The Dry Treat/Stain Proof/Impregnating sealant showed comparable fading as in the Control (no Sealant section).

Discussion

  • The results of this simple test demonstrate that for outdoor use of cement tile, the VLT Grout Release/Top Coat co-polymer sealant with UV filters prevents fading and we consider it to be a superior treatment than the Dry Treat/Stain-Proof product for outside use.
  • The use of the VLT Grout Release/Top Coat co-polymer sealant provides an appealing color enhancement effect on cement tiles.

The UV filters prevented the colors from fading when exposed to bright sunshine for a long period of time. Though not tested in this experiment, we believe the VLT Grout Release/Top-Coat co-polymer sealant will prevent staining from bird droppings and other organic stains from leaves and natural debris.

Mossy Fan Vine & Tea–Perfect Match

Alfred, the well known brand of LA coffee shops has opened a new tea shop in Melrose Place with the most relaxing decor. Read about it in Hollywood Reporter. 
Owner/ designer Joshua Zad came back to us once more for the perfect tile for his vision for Alfred Tea Room.

Designer Melissa Adams at Villa Lagoon Tile came up with this soothing, fun fantasy vine exclusively for Villa Lagoon Tile and it is a lovely compliment to the pink decor in the new Alfred Tea Room.

Stop in for a refreshing sip and let them know that you noticed the tile :o)
