Tile Color Spotlight: Add a Splash of Tropical Color with Hawaiian Blue

Tile Color Spotlight: Add a Splash of Tropical Color with Hawaiian Blue

Tile color shown: Hawaiian Blue

In April, we all start dreaming of sun-drenched beaches, the endless blue sky and a vibrant turquoise sea. Why not channel the look year round with Hawaiian Blue's tropical blue hue? Immerse yourself in the color of crystal clear waters highlighted by a high crackle glaze and rippling variation, or just add a feature wall in this amazingly azure colored ceramic tile. No matter where you use it, backsplash, shower, or hearth, Hawaiian Blue truly conjures up images of sparkling waves and deep lagoons.

Hawaiian Blue is a color that is right at home in vintage settings. Paired with this antique wallpaper the aqua color adds a splash of vibrant color to the traditional space.

This watery hue is a calming and serene choice for any kitchen, but bold too. The mosaic tile below is refreshingly cool, while the white cabinets and stone counter add a key warming factor.

To get a rich textured look with a Moroccan vibe try our Star & Cross pattern.

This aqua sea blue hue can have a real modern effect on a space, in part because the color is a go to for many Mid-Century designers.

Pair this bold blue with white for a refreshing and rich contemporary look.  The tile on the hearth adds a bit of individual character and charm without overwhelming the neutral feeling of the living room.

Total immersion in this confident, beautiful shade inspired by the sea is the order of the day in the bath below. The variation in the glaze keeps the monochromatic surface treatment from becoming heavy or boring, each little tile sparkles like a sunlit wave creating a dreamy get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

This blue feature wall in the shower draws the eye to the end of the room, enlarging the space visually. A blend of installation patterns creates interest and texture, and choosing the straight set pattern for the colored wall underlines the design element.

Hawaiian blue is a great choice for the clean bright look of the tile backsplash below. Again, the counter and floor contribute to the essential warming tones, while the pristine white cabinets frame the watery blues for an expressive and personal vibe.
