Spanish Home in Rancho Santa FeMediterranean Living Room, San Diego

We transformed this room from an outdated southwest style space to this elegant Spanish style living room. The fireplace was redesigned and an arched passage to the dining was added to better define the spaces. The balance of materials that help create this space are the old world terra cotta tiles, smooth plaster walls, hand carved stone fireplace and rough wood stained ceiling.

    I assumed as much but was still hoping to get color/plaster info. Is it venetian plaster or something different?

    It's a Venetian plaster that starts with a couple different colors that I select from a paint fan deck. Then the artist combines them in different amounts and application to create the finish. This was done a couple years ago so I really have know way of confirming those starter colors at this point.

    Are you still available to answer questions about the floor tile? I'm not in San Diego, I'm in Seattle area. Thank you!

    Thanks. This stain color is a custom mix we created with several samples. If you are near San Diego I'd be happy to help you with your project.

    Hello, thanks for the question. This fireplace came from a local source (Mexico). It was custom. Truth is, this particular vendor did a great job on the finished piece but was a challenge to work with because of lack of response, etc. I would have a hard time using him again because I expect from my vendors the same thing I give to my clients---great service.

    Where are you located? I will give it a quick look and see if there might be a source near you for something like this.

Though it can give a room a rich feel, there are considerations when using natural stone tiles for flooring. Stones like travertine, limestone, slate, granite, quartz, onyx and marble all perform differently when exposed to moisture. They often need protective sealers, which wear off over time and need to be reapplied, Bettiga says.CTM terracotta tile in basketweave pattern: San Diego Marble and Tile
