Tauska is one of the most creative designers I have ever worked with. I had the pleasure of helping Tauska bring to life 2 residences in the South Bay of Southern California for all tile and slab needs for kitchen and bath. Tauska has an amazing ability to make rooms come to life that speak to her clients esthetics preferences but with her discerning eye and vision that creates unique and exquisite spaces. Also, she is REALLY fun to work with and you will definitely have a laugh or two.
