Sneak Peek: A Colorful English Home. "The moment I stumbled across this sink, taps and marble stand on Salvo’s website, I knew I had to have it! We had many discussions regarding the best tiles to accompany the sink but we got there in the end. The marble tiles are called blanco hexagon tiles and sourced from Walls and Floors. They were installed using Bal grout in Smoke." #sneakpeek
want a penny floor, but the idea of sitting for over 8hrs painstakingly gluing pennies to the floor makes your heart sink? Well - you can, over time, glue pennies to square mesh, so on the day of flooring, you just have to glue/grout down the mesh, and then fill it with grout, which seems to me, a more reasonable undertaking :)...
"I used Weldbond Glue to adhere each penny, individually, to my floor. ALL wax was removed from the floor before I started. To be just a little crazy, I made each penny heads up & facing the same direction. Here and there, I would throw in a dime.... and when I found a cool penny (like a wheat penny), I put them tails up. It gave everyone something to look for. As I finished a section, I grouted them. I used black, sanded grout. Kept dirt from finding it's way into the cracks & looks finished."
