Color Spotlight: Add Matte Sophistication with Carbon

Posted by: Kali • Oct 17

Color Spotlight: Add Matte Sophistication with Carbon

Image: This Old Apartment

For a lot of us, black is what we feel most comfortable in.  Black has become a neutral, its our go to sweater in the closet, or favorite pair of shoes, and recently a popular choice for interiors.  Darkly dramatic, our tile hue, Carbon offers a deep graphite shade that is subdued by its smooth matte finish. There is a simplicity to Carbon, it goes with every other color there is, elevating them to a level of sophistication they just can't get to on their own. Black even goes with other blacks, absorbing light rather than reflecting it, adding depth and volume to any room.

The Dramatic matte hue similar to Carbon in the kitchen above highlights the warm yellow and white tiles.  The dark hue helps make the pattern pop, turning the backsplash into an instant focal point in the room.

Carbon is the perfect backdrop for textured wood, and metal, making it an ideal choice for any industrial setting.

Getting creative with subway tile grabs attention, while a Straight Set pattern adds modern expression to an installation. Above, the choice to use 2x6 tiles in a matte black amplifies the white-washed texture of the wall. Below the 3x12  tiles are a welcome change from a traditional 3x6 size and lend a slightly more polished look to the open kitchen design.

Love this dark hue, but prefer a little pattern?  Try a bold flooring statement or accent wall with our Handpainted pattern, Kasbah Trellis in the Dark Motif.  The design's Carbon glaze with its contrasting dry line will give your space the perfect amount of graphic appeal.
