Tile medallions can recreate vacation memories in your home

Just like fewer people are traveling, there are fewer people who are building homes these days. The friends of mine who are working in the construction fields still talk about work being slow.  It seems that more people are putting extra effort into beautifying their existing homes instead of building. That makes a lot of sense to me.

If there is one thing that any homeowner can add to their surroundings to instantly make old rooms seem new its art. Tile Medallions by Emerald Isle Studio in Arvada, Colorado can add drama and flair to any space.

Their art pieces are essentially mosaic designs on a large scale. As with any hand crafted item, no two pieces will be exactly the same. Even if the pattern used is the same, there will be subtle differences in the stone or tile that will make each tile medallion unique.

You can have almost any design or scene created. Can you imagine traveling to a distant land (or even closer to home) and enjoying a stunning mountain vista? Or taking that beach getaway and reveling in the sunlight dancing on the waves?

Sure, you can take a photograph of the moment, have it printed and display the picture in your home. Over time the photo will lose its appeal because the ink will fade or it will be moved among your other vacation souvenirs.

The nice thing about Emerald Isle Studios is that you can bring the scene to life in your home where it will be a permanent travel memory that won’t fade. Of course, you can also have logos and other artwork customized to your needs.

With tile medallions almost anything is possible. No matter what style you choose you are sure to have added enjoyment to your home or office for years to come.
