Color Spotlight: Keep It Cool with Crater Lake

By Kali |


Fireclay Tile Inspiration Gallery: Emily Henderson's Big Reveal

Tile Shown: Ogee Drop in Crater Lake

This refreshing blue tile's claim to fame is being featured in Emily Henderson's very own master bathroom remodel. Crater Lake, an engobe glaze tile with a bit of crazing for a refreshing take on traditional pastels. Whether it's paired with bright white cabinets, warm wood finishes, or chic, gold-finished hardware, this cool blue tile lends a reviving, bespoke, and decidedly sophisticated look to your kitchen or bath.

Crater Lake adds a polished splash of color to bright neutral palettes. In the kitchen below, this soft blue herringbone pattern makes an upscale textural statement.

Crater Lake is also a take on classic baby blue, effortlessly transitioning from traditional to modern to even farmhouse-inspired kitchens. Consider using it to accent a stovetop backsplash--we love how this kitchen's hooded stove uses tile to frame its recessed shelving (because stylish storage is always a design win).

The designers for Coastal Living's 2016 Showhouse used Crater Lake and Caribbean for this pool house kitchen's backsplash and Hexagon floor tile. Tile is also a smart design solution for spaces where you can expect plenty of water foot traffic.

Tile Shown: 6" Hexagons in Crater Lake

This bathroom tile's refreshing take on baby blue lends softness to this space's heavily linear design, while a square straight set pattern helps to reinforce contemporary elements. Mix in golden hardware and warm wood finishes to add thoughtfully contrasting textures.

For your consideration: Pickets in Crater Lake. We think this shape, color and pattern combination would be incredible as a wall or floor application:
