The tiles in the lanai
We shopped at Floor & Decor and the Tile Shop: both have wonderful stuff, and discovered a couple of Chee Hsin tiles: the octagram (8 pointed stars 八角星 QX #115/165) was one of them. We’ve been to this shop a few times but didn’t see the octagonal star tiles till today. The passed few times there, I only looked at the handful tiles that I needed, did NOT look around. … And on another visit for outdoor kitchen backsplash, I found QX #109/159!
Soooo… shopping is important -:).
QX #109/159, in marble too
We debated between two tiles, Sabbia Bianca which is 12×24 ($21.96 for 6 pc, 11.63 sf; glossy) and Andor Ivory Facet 8×24 ($26.55 for 9 pc, 11.65 sf; matte), using the octagram as accent. I’m glad we picked matte wavy 8×24. We used Acryl Pro adhesive and Permacolor grout 2585 almond color.
