Jodie Rosen does it with Stainless Steel tile!

Monday, October 22, 2012


I love capturing images for Jodie Rosen of Jodie Rosen Design. She always wows me by presenting something unique in her interior design. This time the WOW was the stainless steel tile!  I had never seen stainless steel tiles before. But I now see it is being used more and more frequently.  When I asked Jodie about it, she told me the stainless steel mosaic tiles are a relatively new material for her as well. She loves how durable they are for a kitchen backsplash.  She says,  “it’s a super sleek look with a high level of reflection, which is a nice bonus for such a dark colored material.  In this kitchen, it provided a great backdrop for the ‘statement’ stone used on the countertop and waterfall edge of the island”.

Another great aspect of this interior is the stone fireplace, which, Jodie tells me is called Erthcoverings (that’s the right spelling, not a typo!). She continues,  “It is a random installation which is done with love by the guys onsite.  The result is a more modern take on the ever-present split face slate frequently found on fireplaces.” She says she loves how it quietly makes an impact in the space without fighting with the kitchen.

Finally, I learned a new design term. The cabinetry is considered transitional in style, Jodie tells me “It’s a classic shaker panel but the profile is a little more clean than a traditional shaker.  It warms up the white painted finish – this house is a really nice mix of modern without feeling too stark and sleek.”

She is right about that. Even though this was a new build, and thus empty, it still had a very warm and welcoming feeling. Both of us felt that the new owners would be very happy here for a long long time.
