Vintage-Modern Tiles Are Made To Order In Colorado

Julep Tile Company

When Julep Tile Company launched in 2010, the Louisville, Colorado-based business established by Peter and Kirsten Sharp made a splash with its vintage-modern tiles.

Intricate designs influenced by textile, wallpaper and stencil patterns are made to order: Julep’s artisans hand-press each tile, then mix and apply one of 36 earthy toned glazes by hand.

Recent debuts include Two-Color tiles inspired by tone-on-tone flocked wallpaper, and a line of decorative tile inserts is in the works.

A new online shop lets customers order from home, rather than visit a showroom, and receive tips from the Sharps themselves. “We really enjoy working directly with our clients,” Kirsten says. “It’s always fun to hear about the home-renovation projects they’re working on.”
