Color Spotlight: Go Rustic Chic with Birch

Color Spotlight: Go Rustic Chic with Birch

Our Tile shown in Birch

Inspired by peeling bark and the light wood grain of our favorite bare trees, Birch has us dreaming of the outdoors.  Highlighted by a rustic crackle glaze and a creamy white undertone, this nature-inspired hue is the perfect starting point for any neutral interior, creating a sense of casual elegance sure to calm the senses.

With endless subtleties in tone and texture, Birch will provide visual interest to any space.  Try this neutral favorite in an offbeat kitchen backsplash pattern such as herringbone, or as a soothing wall covering in your bathroom.

Mimicing Birch's natural state, we suggest pairing this rustic neutral with other naturally neutral hues that fall within a similar color family.  We suggest complementing the rustic tan hue with a soft, creamy white such as our color White Gloss and a warm charcoal gray, such as our color Keystone.

Our Tile colors shown in White Gloss, Birch and Keystone

We love how this contemporary kitchen adopts a similar naturally neutral color scheme.  The dark charcoal floors and white cabinetry highlight the wood inspired backsplash.  Recreate this rustic chic look by creating a Herringbone floor pattern with our field Tile in Keystone, and a classic offset backsplash in Birch.  Pair with creamy white finishes and contemporary fixtures to complete the look.
