2020 Detroit Home Design Awards

March 27, 2020

Big thanks to Hour Media's Detroit Design magazine for recognizing two Pewabic installations in their recently announced 2020 Detroit Home Design Awards.

"Pewabic's creations are outstanding and it was great to see that the judges, too, recognized great tile when they saw it,” explains Detroit Design Editor Megan Swoyer. “I was excited that Pewabic won for Interior Use of Tile, but also their creations won in Use of Color (blues, in this case) in a fabulous Birmingham home."

The tile recognition features our 2x6 Smoke tiles in classic subway tile and herringbone patterns, putting a modern twist on a kitchen stove back and backsplash.

A Pewabic fireplace surround and hearth blending blue field tiles, signature iridescent blue trim and our sculpted comedy and tragedy tiles is a focal point in the blue parlor of Kathleen McGovern Studio of Interior Design, garnering accolades in the Color category.

 

An Ode to Blue 

We give a nod to Pantone’s color of the year “Classic Blue” with a collection of Pewabic’s signature blue glazes. From poolside tile to your cottage up north, blues are perfectly Michigan.

If you’re interested in incorporating some of this magic into your own home, contact our Design Studio today at design@pewabic.org

Pewabic’s Standard Runs give you the opportunity to jump-start a DIY tile project you’ve been putting off, with somewhat less lead time than a custom job.

Our tile studio is currently paused, but hopes to be back in operation April 14, as we comply with Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order regarding COVID-19. Be sure to check here for updates.

Belle Isle is one of our favorite places to visit on a bright sunny day! We miss driving over on our lunch breaks to stroll through Detroit’s 982-acre island. Not unlike Pewabic, Belle Isle Park is a historic nonprofit and cultural resource enjoyed by Detroiters and visitors of the city for generations.
