Rich and nature-inspired hues of greens and blues are among the most popular color choices for interior design projects. And as we just celebrated Earth Day, a day reserved to call attention to our most important natural resources, we look at how these two powerful colors energize tile options and transform homes, both inside and out.
With its strong connection to the outdoors and eco-friendly design, green is a symbol of appreciation and love for nature. Rich greens pair effortlessly with warm neutrals and rusty terracotta tones creating an elegant moodiness, too.
When it comes to backsplashes, bold and beautiful colors reign – a green glossy mosaic from the Kaze™ series, for instance. Note the variance which only adds to a visual feast for interiors.
Looking for a way to create height in rooms? Take a classic subway tile and make it vertical. The beautiful pop of Verde green when incorporating Passion™ glazed porcelain tile makes this bath even more special.
Take advantage of increased interest in tile through texture and imperfect details with Inhale™ glazed ceramic tile. Using a color like Verde, which works so well with wood tone and black and white accents, complements most any wall décor.
Iridescent excellence! The best part of waking up is starting the day with your own version of spa living. Splash™ glass mosaic tile in Moss features the classic picket shape – surround yourself in green.
Blue tones have a wealth of both transitional and modern design options that can offer a cohesive and stylish look to any environment – especially when it comes to tile. With its innate connection to the ocean and the sky, blue embodies the elements of water and air and is associated with calmness and serenity.
When the design objective revolves around making a statement, consider stacked or kit-kat style glazed porcelain mosaics, like Souvenir™. If ever a look exuded both intricacy with uncluttered elements, it’s this, shown in a classic and beloved blue.
Pairing white cabinetry and navy blue backsplash equals an instant classic in the kitchen, shown here Estasi™ glazed ceramic tile.
Another approach to backsplashes is mixing glossy solids with trendy textures within an easy-to-install glazed ceramic mosaic tile in Nagara™ Navy.
Tiles for outdoor projects continue to gain significance as more individuals look to entertain, relax, and exercise in the open air. A refreshing choice for pools is the blue palette featured within the beautiful Immerse™ series of glazed porcelain tile.
Saturated blues are truly deep pools of color, and Mizu™ glazed ceramic tile in glossy blue creates great eye-catching contrast in design with its unique circle design adding an additional element of interest.
The options for a durable and visually appealing backsplash are endless when it comes to tile. An offset mosaic in brilliant blue serves as a the perfect foil to a neutral kitchen, shown here Regala™ glazed porcelain. Which backsplash in the above two kitchen scenes do you prefer?
