Even with the holiday season fast-approaching, Granada Tile‘s clients and cement tile fans have been hard at work. They’ve been experimenting with color and pattern and posting them for fellow tile-philes to see on our Share Designs site. As an aside, this was a particularly great month on Share Designs, with folks going for really interesting and unusual color combinations and a wide range of tile designs. This month, the name of the game was contrast, with lots of tile design ideas that play up a range of shades to create some serious visual pop. First up is a take on one of Granada Tile’s newer cement tile designs, Firenze. Designer Jennifer Hamelet came up with this intriguing combination of colors, blending contrasting neutrals with a bit of aqua to create just a bit of color. It’s the perfect balance for a tile design that’s heavy on pattern.
MaryKay Pisciotta incorporated a range of colors into her interpretation of Chantilly, a cement tile design that blends geometry with some more free-form elements. Here, a sage ground provides a stunning backdrop for the gridded pattern of stars and quatrefoils. This would be a fantastic combination anywhere you want to stand out, such as a focal point-tile backsplash.
Moving to something a lot more modern in inspiration, we have Kathleen Franza’s Leda cement tile design. We love the mod, space-age feel of this concrete tile—and love its versatility. Just about any combination of colors will look stupendous, like Kathleen’s idea to use aqua inside a white circle all juxtaposed against a gray ground. Its mod presence would jazz up a bathroom effortlessly, creating a dynamic wall tile installation.
