Every colour has its own meaning and representation that creates a certain feeling or mood. In this post, we focus our attention on blue - a colour that is strongly associated with tranquillity and calmness. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. Research has shown that it slows the human metabolism and produces a calming effect. However you’re styling your space, rich emerald greens and deep moody blues can work for many different trends in the home. See below for how blue tiles can work for you.
This beautiful mosaic is a perfect example of how blue tiles can create a calm, relaxing atmosphere. Its unique shape and definition create a focal point perfect for bathrooms wanting a spa-like feel or kitchens with an ocean view. The blue colour palette is subtle, with a white metallic finish to add a little sparkle to the room.

This range combines beautiful pieces of art with a distressed, handmade look which is sophisticated yet simplistic. Available in 3 formats: Alchimia Elisir Hex, Alchimia Mix 1 and Alchimia Mix 2. Each of the formats has a subtle colour whilst still being a neutral palette.

The Frammenti collection is an original interpretation of classic Venetian paving, created using a special glaze to give the look of modern terrazzo. The range is inspired by minimalism, light and pattern and creates a very contemporary and chic feel to a space. While the collection is also available in white and two shades of grey, the blue stands out with its cool, crisp feel that's very on-trend.
