They're all Sky Blue. Since the Fireclay tiles are all hand painted glazes, there is a lovely and subtle range of colors from tile to tile - not so much that they look discordant, but just enough variation to give them character.

Fireclay Tile is based in San Jose and that's where they manufacture their tile. They have a large showroom in San Francisco, but I don't know what they're doing elsewhere. They are set up for direct-to-consumer sales, so the web is their primary interface and they are moving away from distribution through other tile retailers.

I don't know the name of the engineered floor manufacturer for this project, unfortunately, but it was a raw, FSC-certified wide-plank white oak product. For other projects, I've started using DuChateau pre-finished engineered white oak plank floors that also use oil and wax for a lovely finish.

Oak & Broad
White Oak floors are great for custom stains and looks. We just sent a 10" wide White Oak to a client that gave it a natural finish since we supplied it raw/unfinished.
