Project Spotlight: Modern Design with a Classic Twist

Starting with a clean yet classic design, Hoboken based J Patryce & Company Design mixed Nemo Tile’s honed Carrara and Thassos marble for a timeless look in this stunning waterfront home in Weehawken, New Jersey.


For the main floor, Nemo Tile’s honed Carrara in Fosso Large Herringbone was used. Coordinating trim pieces, including the Fosso Base Trim, were used to create the look of a tile rug by bordering the mosaic. On the walls, 12×24 Thasos Directo was used in a running bond pattern, balancing the mosaic patterns on the floor and focal points.


With plenty of space to work with, a freestanding soaking tub was added alongside the large built in shower to make this a truly luxurious space. Framed behind the freestanding tub is the mini version Nemo Tile’s honed Carrara in Fosso Herringbone which created a beautiful focal point.


For the built in shower, Nemo Tile’s honed Carrara mosaic in Fosso Small Herringbone compliments the larger herringbone mosaic outside the shower. Another beautiful focal point is created on the shower wall by framing the small herringbone mosaic behind the sleek fixtures and in the shower niche.

The use of materials and the layouts, marble and classic patterns, spoke to tradition yet the built-in millwork and modern features including multiple shower heads and heated elements spoke to the client’s request for hotel-like luxury.

Principal interior designer of J. Patryce Design, Joan Enger’s style could best be described as “classic modern”, blending clean lines with traditional twists. She believes that a well-executed interior includes an interesting mix of materials, finishes and textures. The firm’s direction points anywhere from transitional to modern, but despite the specific style that is requested, each space that they touch feels unique, layered and timeless.

Project Spotlight: Ultimate Spa Bathroom with Sweeten

After over a decade of living in her Central Park West apartment, Leslie and her husband were ready to say goodbye to the outdated, 80’s-influenced master bathroom and adjacent powder, and hello to serene spa-like oasis combining the two! Working with Sweeten, a free service matching renovators with vetted general contractors, they started their transformation with Nemo Tile!


After gutting both bathrooms, their Sweeten contractor started to transform the space with double sinks and minimalist wall-mounted faucets, a lacquered vanity, gorgeous recessed lights and a full-length medicine cabinet. To complement the tawny lacquered vanities, Nemo Tile’s porcelain Oxy Triblend mosaic were used on the floor as an accent to the Oxy 24×48 large format tiles in Royal White!

Oxy is a unique porcelain tile that mimics painted sheet metal and the effects of oxidation on real metal. This unique tile turns ceramics into a furnishing element with a futuristic look that is both feisty and full of character. The Royal White color chosen for this space creates the perfect serene, spa-feel the owners desired!

For the modern wet room—an open shower space without a shower curb—Nemo Tile’s Oxy Triblend mosaic creates beautiful detailing on the floor and shelf insets, while the large format Oxy tile provides great balance. The enormous wet room, which Leslie notes as the best design element, can serve as a steam room, shower, and bathtub. Leslie said about the renovation: “I wanted the space to feel like a spa, and it does!”

Sweeten handpicks the best general contractors to match each project’s location, budget, and scope, helping through project completion. Follow the blog for renovation ideas and inspiration, and when you’re ready to renovate, start your renovation on Sweeten!

Project Spotlight: Two Inspired Bathrooms

Inspired by their honeymoon trip to the Puglia region in Italy, the Rubinsteins set out to Nemo Tile’s Red Bank showroom to create a serene master bathroom that incorporated all their favorite Italian design elements with a modern twist!

Drawing inspiration from the architecture, colors, and patterns their first selection was Nemo Tile’s Build Effect in Ivory. This unique porcelain tile has a alternating concave and convex linear texture that creates the illusion of subtle movement. The glazing also features a variance of ivory shades to add depth and expands design pairing possibilities. The natural light from the skylight in the enclosed shower plays beautifully on the texture of this tile.

To create the serene shower space Nemo Tile’s Pebble Beige Marble was chosen for the floor. Mimicking natural stones, it brings the perfect amount of nature for a truly serene spa feel.

To complete the space Nemo Tile’s Alta 12×24 in White was chosen for the floor and the vanity wall. Installed on the floor in a herringbone pattern pulls the movement from the textured Build Effect tile throughout the space.

We are thrilled we could help bring another design dream to fruition at Nemo Tile. Here’s to many years enjoying this harmonious, serene space!

Guest Bathroom

The inspiration for their guest bath was none other than the Beverly Hills Hotel! The homeowners loved the idea of using the same wallpaper from such an iconic hotel and needed the perfect flooring to make it pop. When they saw Nemo Tile’s Gramercy Hex in Bianco D/EXA in our Red Bank, NJ showroom they knew it was the perfect fit!
