Scandinavian design emerged from the climate and culture of the countries that make up Scandinavia. The Nordic palette includes neutral colors and clean lines that reflect its natural landscape. Our Diamond Tile is an obvious choice to illustrate this design aesthetic. Through simplistic colors and geometric grout lines, here we highlight some of our most successful mid-century modern installations.
The Diamond shape derives from, you guessed it, the precious gemstone, the diamond. This paired down 2-dimensional shape has been used throughout history in varying patterns and styles. Here we showcase the cube pattern, one of our most popular designs. This geometric pattern provides depth and dimension, while allowing flexibility across color and feel.
White Diamond Backsplash
Using white is always trendy in interior design. It offers a clean palette to showcase multiple elements in a room. By using all white tile, the emphasis is put on the subtle design rather than the color. Here you can see the texture our Cube Pattern Diamonds adds to this kitchen remodel. The dark wood and chrome fixtures complete this bold and modern kitchen.
This chic and modern shower utilizes the clean simplicity of chevron-style diamonds. Again, using all white plays to the natural pattern of the diamonds, showcasing the clean lines. This minimalist look is the perfect nod to modern Scandinavian design.

Two-Toned White Diamonds
Another way is to diversify our Diamond Tiles is to use two different tones of white to create a subtle pattern. Here you see a slightly darker white in a radial pattern of diamonds. The monochrome look is great for adding visual interest and creating a diamond tile pattern that people will remember.
Here’s a peak behind the design of a recent backsplash that was inspired by the above kitchen! When we help you select your colors and the tile shape that you want, we put together a digital CAD design for you to help visualize your kitchen.
Even though this specific pattern looks like you would need a Michaelangelo to install, we created mesh-mounted tile sheets that are extremely simple to install with our straightforward instructions.
Another way to use our Star Pattern, this easy and breezy two-toned Diamond install mirrors the crisp cold climates of the North. Paired with mid-century modern furniture, this kitchen is a perfect example of form meeting function. We also love how the windows frame the natural landscape, bringing the outside in.
