We definitely have a soft spot in our tile hearts for the color blue. That's why we were so excited to find out that Pantone's 2020 Color of the Year was Classic Blue. The perfect hue that's both vibrant and mellow, Pantone's Classic Blue reminds us of our vivid 23 Sapphire Blue. Here are 6 ways to use this Classic Blue with our 23 Sapphire Blue glaze in your home...
1. Shower Niche
One of the best places to experiment with color is in the bathroom. Smaller spaces thrive when bright colors are introduced into the design. This is a bold and impactful design, so choose a space where the shock factor won't wear off. This vibrant hue is the perfect choice for a posh and polished look without being overwhelming.

2. Flower Pattern
Bold tile combinations transformed this project from a small bathroom into a master bath. One of our newest, one-of-a-kind signature patterns is creating a repetitive flower pattern with small hexagons. While black and white tile in this pattern is definitely a classic look, try experimenting with different glazes. Choose your own colors according to your taste or use our recommended 23 Sapphire Blue glaze to liven up your design.

3. Blended Monochromatic Backsplash
What's better than one blue glaze? Five blue glazes! Monochromatic designs are some of our favorites because we think the more the merrier when it comes to glaze colors. To achieve a monochromatic color palette, simply add various amounts of white, grey, or black to a single base hue. This design idea creates depth and flow to tile installations. Why settle for one glaze color when you can add five more of a similar hue to create a one-of-a-kind backsplash.

4. Craftsman Square Fireplace
The fireplace is meant to be the centerpiece of your home, so why not add extra attention with handmade tile? Brilliant blue Craftsman Squares next to a bright white mantel and yellow accents is the perfect way to make a statement. One thing we particularly love with this colorful fireplace is the mixture of shapes from the hearth to the surround. Not sure what mixture of shapes and glazes will look good in your space? Just ask!

5. Bold Subway Backsplash
Our Sapphire Blue glaze is the perfect opportunity to channel your love for farmhouse design. To add a modern twist, consider a variety of finishes leaning towards deeper tones in your cabinetry. The color of the cabinetry makes a huge impact on the appearance of the tile. We love how the vibrant blue contrasts with the warm tones in the wood.

6. Blue Ombre Backsplash
An ombre backsplash is the way to our hearts. It creates a cascading effect that is trendy and eye-catching. This backsplash is considered custom because our tile elves lay out each tile from deep blues to bright whites to make sure the design flows. The general rule of thumb of whether or not your design is custom is if it can be repeated.
