Pinhoti Peak
The Pinhoti Peak mountain home features several Daltile products.

Dallas, Texas—Expert craftsman and celebrity designer, Chip Wade, recently completed the year-long design and build of his ultimate show home, “Pinhoti Peak,” in the North Georgia mountains. Grounded in the principles of livability, sustainability and modern design, Wade’s newest structure embodies the popular design trend of “Tender Living.” Tender Living focuses on creating spaces that are comfortable, inviting, and peaceful.

“The interior of Pinhoti Peak rests in the soothing vibe of today’s Tender Living design trend,” Wade said. “I used warm, natural materials, like wood, ceramics and stone, to create a cozy atmosphere—and we incorporated lots of soft textures such as pillows, blankets and rugs to make the space feel comfortable and welcoming. Grays, greens, sage tones, even eggshell textural touches throughout nod to a biophilic and Scandinavian minimalism that is undeniably comfortable. We also used porcelain, ceramic and glass tile throughout the spaces to add a touch of elegance and durability.”

Laura Grilli, director of product design for Dal-Tile, added, “In his use of our Daltile tiles and countertops, Chip infuses the overall comfort of the Tender Living aesthetic with just the right amount of ‘relaxed elegance.’ The look of raw marble in popular triangular shapes in the ADU bathroom is joined by the juxtaposition of matte and glossy finishes for added visual texture in the master bath tiles. The kitchen subliminally brings in a black and white color blocking between countertop and accent tile wall that effectively melds with the adjacent living areas’ shapes and designs of Native American touches. The butler’s pantry intriguingly adds in the modern touch of gold accents while staying true to cultural patterns.”

Wade added, “In creating Pinhoti Peak, I wanted to check all of the boxes with the materials I selected: beautiful, sustainable and virtually maintenance free. I achieved all three of these objectives with the kitchen and bathroom tiles and countertops selected. I am a big fan of putting high quality products in high wear areas like bathrooms and kitchens. Daltile is a product I return to time and time again.”
