My First Sale Staging: Insights from an intern

I am so excited to share with everyone that I have made my very first independent design. I have been working with a client at Capozza who was looking for something different in his bathroom; he showed me pictures of wood-styled tile that had a bluish hue to it, with some warm browns and tans incorporated in it, as well as the kind of accent piece he wanted.


I decided to pull the Citrus: Ocean, a porcelain wood look tile option on our sales floor, since it had the texture and color he was looking for. As for the accent piece, he pulled quite a few designs that would have been a little too busy with the wall-to-floor wood board look he was going with, so I showed the blue frosted glass tile to calm down the pattern and give the eye an anchor within the shower, but also ties in with the blue in the Citrus: Ocean tile.


Once we decided on the design, we chose a grout color that would make the wood look tile stand out without being abrasive. I sent him home with the design as well as some color swatch recommendations for the walls. I cannot wait to see this tile installed! #insightfulintern #teamcapozza #designideas
