A passionate love for porcelain and ceramics. Since the day we started our company it has catered to those looking for something unique, refined and artful. Debbie and her Partner Eric had completed many high-end residential kitchen and bath remodels with work prominently featured in many design magazines. As interior designers they encountered many issues finding the right tiles for clients projects - so they started designing and making their own one of a kind ceramic and porcelain tile creations. Many the company still makes to this day.
Founder, Debbie Montrose has had a love affair with art since she was a child - and still has a set of colored art markers from her childhood, proudly displayed in the studio as a reminder of how far her artistic journey has taken her in life. Like her, everyone on her design team holds that same passion for making long lasting art for the home. Our team has the expertise to handcraft many complex bespoke designs for nearly any size tile installation.
What makes us different? Our team of artisans has created a unique “secret” method for painting tile that is like no other - and it’s noticeable in every tile we hand craft and paint. We take pride in our craftsmanship - and our clients have noticed. Because at the end of the day we are creating artistic decor designed to last a lifetime.
All of our tiles are custom made with exclusive original artwork by hand in our southern california design studio. We make the tiles that help put that last bit of design magic on your project.
At the end of the day, art is beautiful and makes people happy - it means a lot to us that we are able to bring unique art into people’s homes.

User Experience Design Immersive Program
500+ hours of instruction and workshop time learning UX skills such as user research, usability testing, information architecture, user interface design, and interaction design.
Ask a lot of questions! Gain knowledge of context, users, & business goals. Research competitive products & conduct interviews. Identify objective & conceptualize. Gather data and collaborate to synthesize. Get them post-its notes ready!
Create user flows to help gather a holistic understanding of the user experience. Wireframe for constant feedback & quick reiterations. This helps save the business money by preventing revisions in the latter half of the product cycle!
Develop paper prototypes and/or hi-fidelity mockups (InVision, Axure, Balsamiq) will help identify any blindspots or interactions that the user missed. Evaluate design with stakeholders and gather feedback from usability testing.
Complete final design and prepare the deliverables for all stakeholders. But, the work isn't finished yet. The whole product experience starts here and will only benefit from constant feedback and making improvements.
