Judge and Perez of Kelle Contine Interior Design aligned on a plan for a modern farmhouse with a twist – drawing from a limited color palette, dialing up interest with raw materials, bold tile, textural wallcoverings, sculptural lighting selections, and concrete sinks and bathtubs by Native Trails.

    5 Reasons to Fall for Our One-of-a-Kind White Finish

    Farmhouse Quartet Design by Nancy Blandford, featuring Farmhouse Quartet

    Since the introduction of our NativeStone® sinks and tubs in 2014, they have been available in three finishes: Ash, which provides the traditional mottled gray color you think of when you think of concrete; Slate, a much darker gray, nearly a charcoal; and Pearl, a one-of-a-kind white finish that is practically perfect in every way.

  • How to Get White Right in the Kitchen and Bath

    An Interview with Designer Kishani Perera


    When Kishani Perera was a teenager, the eclectic bedroom she created for herself landed in a local newspaper feature about cool teen rooms. Today the Los Angeles-based interior designer receives press that is much grander—think Elle Decor, Lonny and HGTV Magazine; but the subject is the same: Kishani’s otherworldly talent for pulling together layered spaces filled with whimsical accents, statement tile and vintage furniture. She has to divorce herself from a lifelong compulsion to collect the latter—read on to hear why.

  • 10 Wow-Worthy Wet Bars

    These spectacular cocktail-making stations all feature an artisanal bar sink

    Wet Bars

    Though a wet bar is a mainstay in most luxury homes, its design, size and location within the home vary widely. The general compactness of this space—and the loosening-of-the-necktie and kicking-off-of-the-heels that it implies—mean it often becomes a showcase for a designer’s creativity. Continue reading

    The Americana Vanity is newly available in a 48” size and with a coordinating NativeStone® vanity top

    Americana Vanity 48" Americana Vanity in Whitewash with NativeStone Palomar Vanity Top with Integrated Sink in Pearl

    “They don’t make them like they used to.” You’ve probably heard that a time or two about products these days. But in this era of fast fashion and hours-of-assembly-required furniture, one of our company’s founding principles was to make things like they used to be made: by hand, and in deference to tradition. We believe that’s the only way to achieve one-of-a-kind character.

    It’s also the way we build our best-selling Americana Collection. Continue reading

  • How to Keep Your Copper Sink Looking Like the Day You Bought It

    Mojito Polished Copper  

    Meet MetalProtect™, Our Innovative New Protective Coating That Preserves Your Metal Sink

    One of the best things about life? We are all deliciously different, with home design tastes and preferences that vary and shift—not unlike the patina of our hand-hammered copper sinks.

  • Designer Michel Smith Boyd Tells You How to Nail the Rose Gold Trend in Home Design

    Copper and Rose Gold  
    Designer Michel Smith Boyd Michel Smith Boyd

    Metallic accents define Michel Smith Boyd’s aesthetic. Well, metallics and moody textiles. OK, and layered accessories. Boyd is no minimalist, and he’s not shy about going all out with glamour, even in the most utilitarian of spaces—the kitchen and bath. The Atlanta-based designer, who has appeared everywhere from the pages of Elle Decor to this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has become known for artfully mixing metals and spiking his designs with rose gold.

    After Boyd absolutely killed a Palm Springs powder room in the Christopher Kennedy Compound show house during Modernism Week last year—making a rose gold faucet its unexpected centerpiece—Vogue quoted him as saying: “In the world of hardware finishes, rose gold became the new rock star. Entire bath designs have been inspired by and built around the distinctive color. Hardware is literally jewelry.”

    Consider These Bath Trends to Elevate Your Bath This Spring

    Elevate your bath Avalon Freestanding Tub, Interior Design 2016 Best of Year Award Winner


    Lately, on Instagram, we’ve noticed a tale of two bathroom design trends: The rustic bath and the glam bath. While there are some bathrooms that meet in the middle, most tend to lean either one way or the other. Unfortunately, either design style can easily veer off track into cheesy - or gaudy-ville if not completed with premium materials and a design game plan.  Whether you want to create a glamorous bathroom—one that conveys you’re of good stock, old money, and high class (even if you’re absolutely none of these things)—or a rustic bathroom that will have visitors convinced there are rolling hills with wildflowers and cattle just outside the window (even if there are only brownstones and designer dogs), we have some tips:

  • Nickel, Perfected.

    A Hammered Nickel Sink; Perfectly Luxurious, And Perfectly Livable

    Mojito Bar Prep Sink Mojito bar/prep sink in Polished Nickel

    A nickel finish sink? So beautiful, yet so many questions! How is this finish achieved? How does it hold up? Is it easy to maintain? How does it compare with stainless steel? Why would I choose Native Trails’ nickel over a traditional stainless steel sink or another luxurious alternative?

    The short of it - Yes! Our nickel is extremely durable and super easy to maintain. Due to the hammered texture, it is incredibly forgiving. Those nicks, dents, and scratches that occur during everyday use make a stainless steel sink look beat-up over time. But with Native Trails, they are practically invisible in a hammered Brushed Nickel sink, or in a Polished Nickel sink coated with MetalProtect®, our new sealer. Our nickel finishes are considered more luxurious and eye-catching than most stainless steel, and our processes for achieving these finishes are a significant reason why they maintain their luxe appeal over time.
