A few months ago, we at Emser Tile shared our exciting collaboration with Vern Yip, HGTV and TLC’s Trading Spaces Designer, as he remodeled his home in Rosemary Beach, Florida. In an interview with HGTV about the project, Vern expressed that he wanted his house to feel like a luxurious escape while remaining family-friendly. He was able to achieve this look through a variety of Emser Tile’s new collections. 

Today we’re thrilled to take you on a tour of Vern’s beach home:

In the master suite, walls lined with Emser Tile’s Winter Frost collection in small-scale chevron marry cool neutrals with a detailed pattern to create an eye-catching effect. Emser Tile’s Silver Marble collection in gloss finish adds luxury and sheen to this stunning space.

The carriage house floors are lined with the same Silver Marble collection tiles from the master bath, carrying the same luxurious themes throughout the house. The gloss finish pairs perfectly with the carriage house’s modern furniture and cultured accent pieces.

Within the carriage house, the guest bath features Emser Tile’s Winter Frost collection in a wide hexagon pattern. The shape is reinforced with a modern octagonal mirror, creating a play on geometrics.

According to HGTV, Vern’s home is one of the first in Rosemary Beach to have a second-story pool. The rooftop splash pool is finished with Emser Tile’s Esplanade Trail mosaic. Resistant to UV and sun exposure, this tile is an ideal choice for indoor and outdoor spaces alike. The natural stone aesthetic complements the wood floors of the rooftop deck, with the functionality of tile.

Lined with floor to ceiling beveled Winter Frost, and floors once again feature  Silver Marble, seamlessly connecting the aesthetics between the outdoor pool deck and the interior .
