Locally headquartered island-lifestyle brand Tommy Bahama partnered with California-based Lunada Bay Tile to collaborate on a tile collection with vacation vibes that bring the exotic to the abode. Think seaside blues inspired by the turquoise waters of Raja Ampat (pictured), a remote archipelago in Indonesia. Or beiges and browns that recall the soft-rock palette of Cappadocia, a semiarid, rocky region in Turkey.

The idea, according to Feras Irikat, director of design and marketing for Lunada Bay Tile, is for homeowners to create their own sanctuary. “There’s a lot of noise and chaos in our world today,” Irikat says. “People are tired of feeling like they need to ‘keep up with the Joneses.’ When they close their doors, they want to connect to their environment.” Tommy Bahama by Lunada Bay Tile available at lunadabaytile.com.
