Flip or Flop’s Christina and Tarek El Moussa are taking materials into their own hands.
The HGTV stars have released a new line of tile with TREND Transformations, and yes, they plan to use them in their own renos.
“Our collection is called The Diamond Collection, which I like because I like diamonds,” Christina says with a laugh. “Who doesn’t? We’ll use it in all of our flips.”
When it came to designing the line, which will be available at Granite Transformations/TREND Transformations locations beginning in October, the couple considered modern sizes, chic color schemes and plenty of glitz to go around.
“Christina likes bling-y, of course,” Tarek says. “Honestly, it is the coolest countertop, the best colors, the best bling. Christina did a super good job picking them.”
A particular favorite element for Tarek, who welcomed his and Christina’s second child in August 2015, is the care the team took in finding the material. “They actually went to Italy and they went into different mines until they found this specific quartz,” he says.
And although they have a little shimmer in them, Tarek still considers the options fairly gender neutral.
“It’s a little bit darker, a little bit masculine,” he says.
Christina adds, “Plus I think kitchens — no offense to the men — but I think women have more of a say. I think quartz all around, is not too feminine. It’s more of a modern, simple look.”
