Natural Texture

Natural, handmade materials with highly tactile textures that are charmingly imperfect add warmth and comfort to spaces. Tiles replicate the appearance of rustic stone, pitted concrete, textural brick, wicker and wood grains to add textural interest to surroundings.

We’re spotting pastels with colors like sage, mint, rose, and sky blue, which can add a soothing and organic effect to interiors. It also fits into larger color trends in the industry as paint companies explore sage-green colors of the year, such as Benjamin Moore’s October Mist and Sherwin-Williams’ Evergreen Fog.
