Tile File

You’re a parent, so there’s no escaping adulthood. Which means it’s time to replace your dorm room movie poster decor with sophisticated works of art.

Start with personalized wall tiles from Palette. The handmade wooden slabs are painted by local artists Anna Conklin and Genevieve Smith, then coated in resin for a glossy finish. Assembled individually or in groups, they look chic in the kitchen, bathroom, nursery, or baby’s bedroom.

Choose from shades like lime green and chocolate brown accented with persimmon or bronze. Add a letter, select an image — bird, airplane, butterfly — or emblazon with your baby’s name and date of birth.

With a couple of these on your walls, you’ll still be a poster mom.

Available at Lavish, 540 Hayes Street, between Octavia and Laguna Streets (415-565-0540 or shoplavish.com); online at paletteartwall.com.
