A condo in Portland, Oregon's historic Alhambra Building (ca 1926) undergoes a startling transformation by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design.  The original narrow galley kitchen was expanded by removing a wall adjacent to the family room and opening the wall to the dining room.

To grace the floor, "Badajoz-912" cement tiles (8x8 inches) were selected from Granada's Echo Collection, an assemblage of more than 140 distinctive patterns for bath and kitchen floor tile designs.   A pulsating pattern of black and white,  the Moroccan-inspired "Badajoz" floor tiles set the overall tone for the room's decor.

According to Jessica Helgerson, "The bold decision in this space was to embrace high contrast, both in the dark cabinets playing against the pale ceiling and in the highly patterned floor tiles."  A well planned and executed design, indeed!
