TILE SIZE 4" x 4"
A spectacular ceramic tile wall mural greets guests lucky enough to use the powder room in the home of Paula and Brad Dickey in Homer, Alaska. The striking wilderness scene of snow streaked mountains coolly reflected in a lake was created from a photograph Paula took while on a trip to the Eagle River Valley, about twenty miles north of Anchorage. Wall mirrors on each side of the mural add a panoramic dimension to the image. As an artist and designer, Paula recalled reading about Imagine Tile and how they could capture virtually any image on ceramic tile. She contacted the company to further explore its custom capabilities and quickly retained Imagine Tile to create a one-of-a-kind mural for her home. The final product is composed of 154 individual 4″ x 4″ tiles, and installed by her general contractor husband Brad, using the accompanying coded pattern. Paula said, “The astonished reaction from our guests has been a source of great satisfaction for us.”
