Why American Clay is PERFECT for bathrooms!

Hi Friends!

This is one of my favorite bathrooms I did for a client.

Adding American Clay to the walls of her gorgeous home was just icing on the cake.  My client chose the American Clay product Porcelina.

"Porcelina is often compared to the Venetian plasters of Italy.  It is truly closest to quality of "porcelain" ceramics for which it was named.  Satin smooth, easily blended for marble-like surfaces, Porcelina casts a spell of beauty…with an edge of contemporary, crisp lustre.which is the smoothest of all the clay products and closest to the look of Venetian plaster".  (from A.C. website)

For those that are thinking about doing American Clay in their bathroom you made a GOOD CHOICE! We did our own bathroom in American Clay and every time my husband takes a shower he feels like he is at a spa because the clay naturally absorbs water vapor and then releases this amazing clay smell back into the air!

Our own master bathroom done in American Clay - I also made the clay swirl art piece above the tub :-)

 Don't forget that the clay is completely natural (no VOC's)  100% "green" and mold resistant. :-)

The color my client chose was Amber Grain - one of my favorites!

Pardon the dust!  We did this home right in the middle of all the construction process, in fact we did this entire home in American Clay - top to bottom including the garage!

Come see my HOME TOUR - I did all my walls in American clay! Even my little girls room in PINK clay :-)

  1. Just "touring" some bathrooms from Thrifty Decor Chick. The wall looks great, but that window! Oh my goodness, that is one of the most lovely stained glass examples I have ever seen in a home!! It is simply beautiful!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! YES - the stained glass bathroom window was from Europe, my client had exquisite taste. I think the American Clay Plaster walls accent it perfectly. They are so subtle but full of depth :-)

  2. I will be building soon in the Hill Country of Texas. I want my home to have a French Farmhouse " always has been there" rustic/organic feel with wood beams and recycled wood floors. Would American Clay be a good product for my walls? Thank you

    Kind Regards,

    Pamela Wilbanks

    1. Hi Pamela,
      Yes, the American Clay would fit in beautifully. It has a very European feel. Feel free to contact me if you want anymore information or search the blog for other examples
