Thanks for your question. In this instance, my client presented me with some idea sketches and I worked up some designs for him to choose from. This was the winner. My material is aluminum with stainless fasteners.

Texas style may be hard to define, but you know it when you see it. It is a reflection of the palette and the spirit of the place. Look to the cultural history, the materials at hand worked by traditional artisans, and an authentic style true to place will come through. Austin’s palette is as different from El Paso’s as Corpus Christi’s is different from Dallas’. Or for that matter, from Dime Box. When clients tell us that tiles and sconces seem authentic to Texas, we feel like we’re on the right track.

Growing up in Galveston, Texas style to me, besides being comfortable and cool is the beach; warm sun, sand and a nice breeze off the Gulf. Don't forget to add a few shells to your décor. I have a little bit of everything in my home here in Missouri; blues, aqua greens, shells, the Texas flag and a set of longhorns. Oh yeah, I'm forgetting the Texas shaped stepping stones in my garden and my Texas star. You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can never take Texas out of the girl.

Know exactly what you mean, ticklepott...My Sis and I spent years in the the K.C. area, raising our respective families...now back in TX...grew up in various parts of the state...El Paso, Dallas, San Antonio and Hill Country...just spent 3 years just north of Corpus...10 minutes from the Island (Port A./North Padre, that is)...now in the deep Tx. woods. I do truly miss the Gulf...never thought I'd love it as much as the Hill Country, but there's something about the salt smell, the wind, and the cry of the gulls that just gets into you!

The rangey hues of natural terra cotta love to team up with deep wood tones. The dragonflies here stand out in terra cotta against a satin finish glaze. The 2x2 in. trim tiles are
