The ocean is calling and we must go – if not in person, by bringing the color inspiration of the beautiful blue and green qualities of the ocean escapes into your home! We have gathered some of our favorite images from beach homes and a palette of ocean hues to help inspire your next project. Brighten up your kitchen with a beach house inspired look by using some of our brighter blues like 1056 Aqua Fresca! Blues and greens can be great for creating tranquil bathrooms whether you’re using our 1017E Sea Mist Moroccan Fish Scales to create a spa-like shower or you use our Deep Sea Blend for a complete seaside experience! Here are some design ideas that coincide with these blues and greens for your space! Keep scrolling to download your free Moroccan Fish Scales wallpaper for your phone or desktop!
Deep Sea Vibes: High Contrast Color Palette
These colors all together are a great recipe for beach happiness. The deep blues of our Cobalt glaze are on two different clay bodies here, red sculpture clay and white sculpture clay. This brings out more of that beloved variation that comes naturally in handmade tile while keeping the colors very consistent! The blend here reminds us of the deep see with its deep dark blues contrasted with lighter hues of blue and green! We suggest this look for a shower wall or a bathroom floor.

Calming Spa: China Sea Subway Tile
Subway Tile is very traditional for kitchen backsplashes—why not make it a little more modern by using an ocean blue green? 108 China Sea is one of our favorite glazes for using one color in a tile project because it has a gorgeous range of variation. See how Bluestone Lane Coffee, a high end cafe in New York City, uses this exact look! Whether you are by the sea or in the middle of a landlocked city, the lovely color and crackle of China Sea is undeniable.

When in doubt: Moroccan Fish Scales!
One of our favorite beach homes we have worked with, this homeowner lives in the Florida Keys and wanted to bring in the colors of the ocean into her kitchen. Moroccan Fish Scales are absolutely perfect for interior design with ocean elements. The shape lends to the blue green colors perfectly! She chose to go with a horizontal layout of her colors in a fading gradation of blue green color—like the sea fading to the sky.

Last but not least, we have our most popular Moroccan Fish Scales shower wall! Using just one glaze color, 1017E Sea Mist, this wall is full of impact and variation! Just like taking yourself to the spa or to the ocean itself, the rich color and shape give us calming and happy feelings.
