Series Episode II: Duo Kitchen Backsplash

Duo Kitchen Backsplash (Nickel)
The Duo Pattern is our second example of modern patterns in the Artisan Stone Tile Carrara line. Duo’s Nickel color scheme highlights this kitchen’s simple steely and minimalist styles. The grey and pearl tones create a 3-dimensional depth on the kitchen backsplash. Duo’s diagonal shifts and the alternating colors are distinct to this pattern creating a unique feeling of movement along its surface. I particularly enjoy this backsplash because of the green and red colors that draw the eye. This example really shows off how the Nickel monochrome color pattern can bring out the other colors around your kitchen.
Duo (Glacier)
Another alternative is our Glacier Blue color scheme. Glacier Blue is named after its nearly translucent usage of blues just like a glacier. The blues nearly fade back to the natural Carrara stone as you approach the center of each diagonal line. Though it departs from the monochromatic scale of the Nickel pattern, it retains the subtlety of its colors.

Duo is offered on 6” x 12” Carrara stone.

Artisan Stone Tile Series: Evolve

To celebrate the success of the showcase at Coverings 2015, we want to give our blog followers and faithful designers some in depth knowledge on the Artisan Stone Tile Carrara line. So, for the coming weeks, we'll post about some of our favorite new designs and talk about some insight from the artist herself, Melinda Earl!
Evolve (Oyster) on Carrara

Evolve, one of our most prominent new designs in the Artisan Stone Tile Carrara Line, is shown above. The unique negative space in this design creates a pattern similar to a budding lotus flower. The calming Oyster color allows the tile to sit comfortably in the background, accentuating the features of the room, without demanding too much attention. The Carrara stone has unique natural veining across its face, giving the subtle reminder of its organic origins. The Evolve is available as a large 12" x 12" tile, which is where the design is truly able to flourish!
