1 Series, 4 Ways: Esplanade

Posted by Barbara Haaksma on Jul 7, 2017 9:46:24 AM

Travertine is a popular limestone material used in construction dating back to 3,200 BC. It continues to thrive in today’s spaces, providing a range of aesthetics from rustic Italian retreats to polished and contemporary. Taking on the design appeal of travertine, our Esplanade™ series is revealed through large format, glazed porcelain tile with four alluring, neutral tones: Alley (light-toned), Hall (beige), Pass (earthy), and Trail (gray-toned).

From a midcentury-inspired home to a regal Sheraton Four Points hotel, see the versatile series shine in four unique spaces.

Follow the trend of carrying design from the interior to the exterior - connecting the living areas and visually leading into an outdoor retreat. The New American Home 2017 in Florida does just that, taking on sophisticated resort living with midcentury panache. The light tone of our Esplanade collection allows the pool to be the focal point, while complementing neutral outdoor furniture and accents.

Moving indoors, set the tone for a peaceful hideaway and accentuate the refined interior elements of this luxurious bathroom retreat in The New American Home 2017. You will find Esplanade carried up from the floor to the wall and throughout the shower shelves. See more of the series throughout the modern home featured in Pro Builder. 

A regal hotel

Consider a large format glazed porcelain tile to fill the space of a larger hospitality environment, such as a regal hotel lobby. Esplanade was the perfect choice for the Sheraton Four Points hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas. Large format tile planks floor the 7,000-square foot space, lending an authentic travertine aesthetic.

Pair the timeless limestone-look with both rustic and modern accents at home for a beautiful contrast. Seen here, the travertine design forms a sleek foundation for the room, allowing an ornate fireplace, rustic coffee table, and contemporary chair to work together in the same space instead of compete.

How will you use Esplanade to inspire endless interior and exterior design possibilities?
