Get Tropical with Chaine Femme

Designed by Austin-based Interior Designer, Kelly Laplante, our Runway collection features chic patterns inspired by timeless fashion trends.  One of our favorite Runway patterns is Chaine Femme.  Effortlessly chic, Chaine Femme's chainmail-inspired design features interlocking geometric silhouettes that are perfect for alternating contrasting shades.  With warm weather approaching we're feeling inspired by this couture inspired pattern in all of our tropical hues.  Keep reading for ideas and inspiration on how to add a little coastal couture to your space with Chaine Femme.

Chaine Femme in Sea Foam offers just the right amount of tropical color without going over the top.  The muted, yet fresh green hue is ideal for creating a colorful backsplash or shower wall.

For something a little more vibrant try out Chaine Femme in our saturated green hue, Emerald.  This crackle glaze features just the right amount of teal and will take your tile design from ordinary to vacation-worthy.

To keep from overwhelming your space with tropical color, try lining only half of your bathroom wall with Chaine Femme.  Keep the bottom half neutral with a traditional wainscoting detail in a neutral hue such as white.

Pair this runway ready pattern with a variety of tropical hues for a truly coastal look.  Blend shades of blue and green to achieve a look that looks layered, textured and unique.

Or for a more traditional inspired style use Chaine Femme in a single coastal hue and pair it with white finishes similar to the kitchen below.

For a tropical look with some edge choose Chaine Femme in a slightly darker blue hue such as Cerulean.
