From world-respected tile and stone manufacturer Ann Sacks, here is an inspirational, beautifully illustrated sourcebook of ideas for using these materials in new ways throughout the home.

Color, texture, pattern, and arrangement are important considerations in crafting the overall effect of a room with tile or stone. This book sets forth the options-plain glossy or patterned porcelain, translucent glass or hammered metal, limestone or terra-cotta-and illustrates the possibilities with lush photos of completed projects. An understanding of the cultural origins of tile and stone also helps in adding ambiance to different rooms. Sacks explores the materials that will invoke a foreign flavor, whether it is Tuscan stone flooring in an entryway or hand-painted Moorish tile in the kitchen.

Varieties of tile and stone exist to suit every taste and budget. Ann Sacks Tile & Stone offers a comprehensive guide to using these materials on large or small scale to add a sense of luxury, culture, and character to any home.
