Color Spotlight: Antique
We recently brought this classic glaze back from our archive and with richer tones on the rise, the timing couldn't have been better. Antique brings to mind Terra cotta rooftops, cobbled streets and weathered clay floors; its earthy brown hue makes it the perfect rustic detail to add to your space. We're sharing design inspiration below, but if you'd like more ideas, head to our Pinterest Board.
Antique is a V4 glaze, meaning that it has the most color variation (we love this about this color, read more about variation here and here). The textured finish of this glaze makes it ideal for tile floors. From the kitchen to your bathroom, this color boasts a traditional look that you'll always love.
