Color Spotlight: Black, White and Classic

Color Spotlight: Black, White and Classic

How can one color scheme be, timeless, classic, modern, and on trend, all in the same heartbeat?  Black and white is a combination that defies all classification. Far from limiting, black and white is the quintessential minimalist palette that unlocks a rich world, inspiring tasteful spaces of any genre.

Tile colors shown: Daisy and Black

For a modern aesthetic, try white tile with a distinctive black grout.  For an even more modern look, use a square Tile shape in a Straight Set layout.

For some graphic appeal, our Kasbah Trellis pattern from our Handpainted Moroccan Collection would look stunning on a floor or wall.

Or try the look below with our pattern, Jardin Fretwork.

Black and white can even be used to create graphic appeal with standard field shapes.  We love how this staircase creates a bold statement by placing standard rectangular field tile in a thoughtful layout.

Black and White can be elegant, versatile, practical, and even playful.  This palette is calming yet liberating, ageless and accommodating.

For a cool, modern look try an oversized subway tile in a glaze color like Daisy, paired with our 3" Hexagon in Carbon on the floor.
