A Must See!

Last Friday afternoon I visited a local art gallery in Raleigh, the Lee Hansley Gallery on Glenwood Ave. I had been personally invited by an local artist to view his recent work.
WOW! Jon Kolkin Fine Art Photography is an incredible treasure and a must see for all.

I have known Jon for over 10 years now, first as a client and later as a friend. Jon is an extremely accomplished local hand surgeon who also travels the world teaching his skills to doctors in third world countries. Now he is also pursuing a creative role as a fine art photographer. Jon's images capture incredible simple beauty in the world around us and his images bring forth new dimension and detail to landscapes in which we have all experienced in our lives. I would strongly recommend viewing this incredible collection in Raleigh.

Inspirations for Creative Living

Walker Zanger’s natural stones and tiles are our latest inspiration for creative living. Schelfe and Associates was fortunate enough to have Angela Sutton and Sharon Whitehurst from Byrd Tile Distributors visit our office yesterday and give us an exciting presentation of Walker Zanger’s newest and most popular tile collections. Everything we saw was amazing!

Here are a few of our favorites:

Studio Moderne
Inspired by old Hollywood, Studio Moderne is a groundbreaking ceramic tile designed by Michael Berman. This collection features tiles with incredible dimension.

Vibe is a fresh new direction in wall tile. The collection’s bold shapes and extravagant hues will add retro pizzazz to any room!

Contessa brings together design traditions from Morocco, Italy, China, Spain and France to create a singular hand-painted collection. Choose from a selection of traditional patterns updated with contemporary colors, inventive graphic applications and exclusive metallic glaze.

High fashion hits the floor and wall with Walker Zanger Matouche Collection. This porcelain tile collection exhibits exotic textures with amazing authenticity.

Tracciato is taking decorative stone to new heights! Handcrafted in Italy, these stunning tiles are carefully etched to create a dimensional relief this is accented with hand-applied gold and silver leaf. Absolutely stunning!

Angela & Sharon

Tim, Caroline, Cindy and I had a great time learning about Walker Zanger’s newest and most innovative collections!
