5 Perfect Palettes Inspired by Colorful Interiors

5 Perfect Palettes Inspired by Colorful Interiors

When dreaming up new tile ideas, we find inspiration in many ways but one thing we cannot deny is our love for color. Everywhere we turn we are met with color inspiration. We are always on the search for the perfect palette and what better way to gather inspiration than to pull from our favorite bloggers, designers, and influencers? We decided to pair our tile with inspiring interiors to create 5 perfect palettes and show how to flawlessly use them.

1. Colorful Eclectic

Our new Instagram friend and obsession - The Colour Tribe, Natasha Webb, of Melbourne, Australia, describes her beautiful brown brick 1980s era home as "vintage meets contemporary". We absolutely adore all of the rich, warm tones of her eclectic home and can't help but think about warm hued tiles seamlessly fitting into this palette. 

Our vision for the palette

Floor it! In their intrinsic nature, warm colors evoke feelings of happiness, optimism and energy. We love the concept of warm hued tiled floors because who doesn't want to feel like they're walking on sunshine?

Medium Moroccan Fish Scales - 65W Amber.
2"x6" Subway Tile in Herringbone - 112 Saddle Clove.
Large Diamonds - 130 White, 3W Lemon, 24 Dandelion.

2. Southern Chic

This pretty-in-pink powder room designed by Tori Alexander is giving us all the springtime inspiration. Tori's style is timeless and classic and she always takes a fresh approach to traditional design. As a Nashville, TN native, Tori nailed this chic design. We can't get enough of this soft pastel palette.

Our vision for the palette

With Pantone's Color of the Year being Living Coral, it's no surprise that shades of pink have taken over in the design world. Our 309E Grapefruit is a dreamy, soft hue of coral that would be welcomed in any powder room. Go for a classic herringbone pattern or get creative with a pink flowered floor. This perfectly varied shade of pink is taking tiled bathrooms to the next level.

3. Rustic Farmhouse

An all-time favorite blogger of ours, SF Girl by Bay is a total dream. The woman behind this eye-candy, Victoria Smith, is known for her Bohemian Modern style. As a San Fran girl, Victoria is a self-proclaimed design junkie and extroverted introvert who happens to be hardwired to share. This hand-built kitchen in East Sussex uses all recycled and reclaimed materials and is bursting with color inspiration.

Our vision for the palette

As a small, handmade tile company, we take great pride in being a roll-up-your-sleeves, dig-your-hands-in kind of place. We love the idea of something being built from scratch and it only makes sense to pair earthy hues of grey and blue to that notion. With our tile being 100% handmade, it naturally comes with perfectly imperfect variation. Here are three of our favorite high variation, earthy hues that reflect our handmade craft.

Regular Hexagons - 1013 Demin.

4. Bold Bohemian

We can't help but fawn over a palette of rich blues and greens. We fell in love with this bold bohemian space by Drummonds Bathrooms the minute we saw it. Known for their high quality powder room products, Drummonds flawlessly executed all the details in this small space. The gorgeous Anna Glover wallpaper is the icing on the cake.

Our Vision for the Palette

The impact of a teal tile can be underestimated. Whether it's two sq ft for a simple shower niche or a floor to ceiling fireplace, this palette is powerful in any quantity. This bohemian palette represents self-expression, bright colors, layered textures, and bold pattern. To get this look with our tile, we recommend deep green glazes with patterned shapes like Herringbone Subway TileMoroccan Fish Scales, and Hexagons.

5. Beachy Modern

Our Minnesota neighbors, Bria Hammel Interiors are an incredibly talented group of women who have designed gorgeous homes around the Twin Cities. They are known for their sophisticated, trendy and sleek style. This home is located right here in Minneapolis, MN so it's no wonder we were immediately drawn to it's coastal palette of cool tones.

Our vision for the palette

This color palette full of coastal vibes is dying to be a statement backsplash. We are firm believers in choosing glazes that make you happy so we always urge our clients not to shy away from a little color. When deciding the design of your backsplash, Mercedes, our mover and shaker, offers this tip 

"When choosing colors and designs for your home, always remember that colors and trends will come and go, so create a space that makes you happy and your life will launch off that."
