Designer Spotlight: A Chat with Karen Vidal
Designer Karen Vidal, whose Los Angeles–based firm Design Vidal has over 70 projects to its credit, is a kindred spirit. She loves cement tile just as much as we do here at Granada Tile. In many of her projects, which range from apartments, to compact bungalows, to smashing Spanish-style homes, the material takes a starring role.
It all started about 10 years ago when she ran across some concrete tile and decided to inset it into the stucco exterior of a Spanish-style building. “I immediately loved it: the pattern, the format, the color,” she says. From that discovery, she began doing more research on cement tile, exploring it as a versatile, durable medium, and incorporating cement tile installations into many of her projects.
