Shape Spotlight: Star and Cross

By Jamie Chappell

Shape Spotlight: Star and Cross

Today's shape spotlight is: Star and Cross. Featuring an interlocking eight-pointed star and X design, our Star & Cross pattern takes from Spanish colonial architecture and sumptuous Moroccan salons. Embracing both the traditional and the exotic, this geometric design adds a graphic touch to your decor. We also offer this classic tile pattern in both a large and small format. We're sharing inspiration on how to use this dynamic duo below:

Above is the Large and below is our our mini version:

This pattern makes for fantasic floor tiles, both the large and the mini version. Go for Star and Cross in a bold color like Justina Blakeney:

Tile Shown: Mini Star and Cross in Adriatic Sea

Go for a more subtle look in a white or neutral and pair with a matching grout:

Tile Shown: Large Star and Cross in Daisy; wall tiles in 2x6 in Sea Foam.

Our founder Paul Burns, opted to do the Large size on his masterbath floor and shifted into the Mini format for the shower pan:

Accent walls:
From bathroom walls to kitchen backsplashes, Star and Cross makes for a compelling tile installation. If you want to accentuate the pattern go for these shapes in two colors, like this:

Tile Shown: Mini Star and Cross in Glacier Bay and Lapis; floor tile is 3" Hexagons in Glacier Bay.

Star and Cross can also just be a nice pop of pattern, as you can see from this shower niche:

Star and Cross also makes for charmiing backsplash material:

Water features:
Working on a pool or fountain? These tiles are right at home in a water feature in our Recycled Clay Body and pair easily with classic handpainted patterns.
