Tile Color Spotlight: 3 Looks with Shetland Wool

In the world of decorating, neutrals play well with others, and Shetland Wool is no exception. Beloved by all for its ability to bridge the gap between classic and contemporary, this versatile hue can fit into almost any mold. Lending itself to a laid-back elegance, Shetland Wool’s in-between gray-beige hue (i.e. greige) strikes the perfect balance between luxe and comfort. Today, we’ve highlighted three ways to decorate with this sumptuously subdued hue.

Marbled Magnificence

We love marble, and it’s even harder to resist when paired with Shetland Wool’s earthy greige hue. It’s warm and inviting undertones elegantly grounds marble’s luxurious surface. And because they’re both sturdy materials for kitchens and bathrooms, marble and greige tile make for a perfect pair.

We love the imaginative use of a marble backsplash under this kitchen’s gray hood, anchored by a greige tile backdrop.

The beauty of Shetland Wool tile is its ability to offer an elegant backdrop for almost any hue. Gold and blue especially lend greige a splash of color that feels timeless.

Just a touch of gold in your kitchen fixtures or hardware can be enough to elevate greige from subdued to sophisticated.

Cottage Comforts

Shetland Wool tile inevitably evokes a sense of softness and comfort, which is why it looks so at home in country-chic bathroom and kitchen designs.

To keep a greige tile wall or backsplash feeling cohesive, consider accenting other pieces with matching paint. This freestanding tub does the job beautifully.
