Compass O a sis
The top hotels once took their cues from
wealthy homes. Today, upscale homes take
design ideas from lavish tourist destinations,
often featuring the same beautiful yet durable
materials, such as Rosa Gres tiles.

A prime example of the hotel-to-home design trend is the Cascade,
Turks & Caicos Villas, a touristic complex of luxury homes conceived
by Ron Shaw of R.A. Shaw Designs and executed by architect Ian
Vanwalleghem. Rosa Gres tiles were selected for their esthetic and
highly complete series of pieces and finishes. This characteristic
makes them unique and ideal for all type of surfaces, indoors and
outdoors, as well as pools. The ocean and intense Caribbean light
are the natural framework for the gray & white construction, which
uses one collection and one color — Mistery Grey — for terraces,
overflow pools, waterfalls, indoor flooring, kitchens, baths and
stairs. The result is a style unity that runs throughout the project
and achieves perfect integration with the environment. Feeling
