7 Favorite Color Blends Created for You, by You

7 Favorite Color Blends Created for You, by You

The beauty of blends knows no limit when it comes to tile. Whether it’s two glaze colors or ten, we want you to create the best blend that matches your unique style. Try mixing different finishes, contrasting glaze colors, going totally monochromatic or playing with accents. Whatever it may be, the world is your oyster for that one perfect blend. The blend that is made by you, for you. To get the gears turning, we’ve put together a list of 7 of our favorite color blends that we just can’t get enough of.

1. Onyx Blend

Drum roll please...introducing our signature Onyx BlendStarting the list out with the boldest of the bunch, our Onyx Blend is all about dimension. Mixing different finishes adds a layer of texture that's downright hard to keep your eyes off of. The Roxy Hotel in NYC chose this dramatic look to give their Oyster Bar that luxurious cocktail lounge feel. For this particular blend, there's an even mixture of our 366 Satin Black and 613 Black for the perfect glimmer of gloss and flawless touch of sheen.

2. Foxwell Blend

Fox Homes hit the ball out of the park with this blend. So much so that we had to name it after it's location at their Foxwell Shoppe. They worked with our designers to come up with this cozy Scandinavian inspired blend to match the personality of their curated local home goods shop. This perfect palette is an equal mixture of 130 White, 77E Grey, 60 Silver Lining, 65W Amber, 61 Navy,155 Steel and 205 Cider. Use it as tile for a fireplace, or wrap your kitchen or bathroom with this blend to add the final touch of comfort.

3. Eichler Blend

Another fan favorite that's inspired everything from mid-century modern kitchens to cheerful fireplace surrounds is our Eichler Blend. Named after this jaw-dropping Eichler home in Palm Springs filled with handmade tile, it was more than deserving of it's own title. Rather than using an equal mixture colors, this signature blend features a neutral base of whites and greys, with a special accent of yellow and teal to create a one-of-a-kind look. Our Tile Artisans have mastered the math of an accent color, so whether you want 5%, 10% or 10.5% of an accent, we've got you covered. And no need to worry about installation, your tailored color blend comes in easy-to-install-sheets!

4. Denim Blend

This past year as many people settled into their homes, we saw clients shy away from minimalist designs and embrace bold blends as a way to bring personality and comfort into their spaces. We're excited for more vibrant blends whether it's this specific Denim Blend or a blend you've dream up of lively yellows, romantic pinks or emerald greens.

5. Shades of Grey Amplified

This gorgeous kitchen made it on our list of favorites because it's the perfect example of a blend that was made specifically for this lively family. As a building block the clients started with our Shades of Grey Blend but soon came to realize that their family kitchen blend needed a bit more unique dimension to suit their personalities. Working with our designers they created their own mixture of hues and textures to give the backdrop of their family dinners, pancake breakfasts and morning coffees the attention it deserves.

6. Moroccan Blues

Starting from scratch, these clients had an idea in mind to create a Mid-Century Modern Moroccan oasis. Loving this direction, our design team quickly got samples over to them to get the ball rolling. Picking and choosing exactly which glaze colors they wanted, they landed on the dreamiest even mixture of blues and greens. What a perfect color palette for this shower oasis!

7. Bungalow Blend

We couldn't resist adding this hot off the press Brownstone Boys entryway floor to the list! Known for their polished yet rustic allure, Craftsman Squares give off a pureness that goes totally unmatched. Craftsman Squares are historically celebrated for their quality materials, integral lines, and honest charm. And if we're being honest, authentic Craftsman tile is hard to come by nowadays. That's why we want to pay homage to this historic and monumental style by helping you create the perfect nature-inspired blend that your "old-home" deserves.
