Warm up: 
Warm tones can sooth just as much as shades of blue. These muted, desert-y hues are sure to give your space the zen-vibe you've been looking for.

Tile Shown: Sparrow, Chickadee, Oriole and Falcon 

All 24 colors are available in a gloss or matte finishes and when paired together, the effect has beautiful dimension. Consider a stacked pattern in a larger size for an unexpected twist on glass, like the kitchen backsplash below:

From the rich Falcon (shown above) to softer tones like Chickadee and Oriole (below), we love the cheery feeling yellows bring to a space:

Pretty in Pink
With three shades to choose from, these hues offer up the perfect dose of pink.

Design tip: Our Glass Tiles pair easily with our Ceramic Tiles. Go for Glass on your walls and ceramic on your floors in a specialty shape:

One of our soft pink hues in a classic square size offers the perfect take on the currently trending pink bathroom:

We're very into pairing a shade of pink with our hand painted tiles in White Motif. Complete the look with brass finishes and soft neutrals:

Spa-vibes: 
Soothing blues and greens are forever favorites in both bathroom and kitchen installations, and our new refreshing hues in glass are sure to be popular.

A lot of people envision mosaic sized tiles when they think of glass, but we love the idea of reframing that conception. Going for a larger field size, like a 4x12 makes for a compelling alternative to a mosaic or subway sized glass tile:

Gone Coastal: 
Classic coastal style is easily achieved with our paler shades of blue and green. Pair with other subtle colors or light neutrals to complete the look:

We'll say it again: we love how our Glass looks with our Ceramic tiles. For a truly coastal look, go for a light blue like Partridge and pair with our beloved Ogee Drop:

Neutral territory: 
While we love all of the saturated hues, we also totally understand the appeal of neutrals. 

From bright whites to dark grays, these easy neutrals can fly solo, but also play well with each other:

Design tip: create a mood board of all of your materials to make sure everything feels cohesive.

Simple and sleek, our brightest white glass tile is Egret. For a more modern look, go for a straight set pattern in a larger size, like 3x12 (you can see all of our glass sizes here).

Going Mid-century? Patterns like straight set, parquet or Escher are often the way to go. Consider pairing a Glass field size for your walls and choosing a mosaic size for a feature wall or floor:

Going dark and moody? Our darker glass tile colors have got you covered. Consider a matte finish for a modern look:
