This HGTV Star’s Geometric Entryway Tile Is the Warmest Welcome
Erin and Ben Napier are famous for bringing a dose of their homey, grandmillennial style to small town homes on the HGTV show “Home Town.” It comes as zero surprise that the Mississippi home the designers share with their two children is the perfect intersection of modern eclectic and traditional, Southern charm.
This week, Erin shared a photo of her entryway on social media, revealing some charming geometric tiles. “It’s screen door weather,” she captioned the snap in which her husband and two children could be seen sitting on the front porch.

While the tile embodies Moroccan style, there’s a laid-back charm and Americana vibe to the space, thanks to the gorgeous wooden door with original trim and screening.
In case you want to steal their style, the exact tile in Erin and Ben’s home is Granada Tile Fez 928 A, available for purchase on the brand’s website for $7.24 per tile.
“Since I was old enough to know I loved home design, I’ve loved cozy Americana, worn wood, linen, slipcovered sofas. So I started making my dream home a real one,” Erin explained in interiors photographer Alyssa Rosenheck‘s new book, “The New Southern Style: The Interiors of a Lifestyle and Design Movement.”
The couple wanted their home to give off a casual vibe. “The art may be formal oil paintings, but it’s just to dress up the casual outfit the rest of the house is wearing,” she explained.
She also pointed out that every home should reflect the owner’s individual style. “I wish people wouldn’t worry so much about how other people are styling their homes. It removes the individualism, which is what makes home so comforting.”
Erin recently shared another photo of new baby Mae’s tiny toes in front of some pretty big and impressive built-in bookshelves. And, true to her word, they aren’t over-styled. Instead, they actually store real books, with a few framed photos and other odds and ends.
And so, as Erin might say, go for the blue geometric tile if it feels like it reflects your style. After seeing the Napier’s entryway, who wouldn’t want to give it a whirl?
