Seize the Mediterranean

By AlysEdwards | 10/5/2021

Romantic aesthetics, natural surroundings, inviting spaces... The Mediterranean design is a historic style that emphases many of the worlds most breathtaking regions.  Light earthy tones like the Ivoor 2x4 provide a neutral backdrop in any space.  Each hand cut piece can add a little extra character to a backsplash or shower wall.  Sticking with the neutrals, mix things up with the Fleece Talking in Circles from the Blendables collection. Make a simple statement by installing these on a bathroom floor or an entry way.  Patterned tile is a key element to a Mediterranean design. The Moorish Red Porto-guese Flor Tile can provide a rich pop of color on a fireplace surround, accent wall or a power room floor.  Rather than using a natural stone on the floor opt for a porcelain stone look such as the Terra Dolce Silver.  The ink-jet technology of this tile allows for perception of depth in the linear veins and markings of this travertine look but with a high durability and low maintenance, which is especially nice when tiling large spaces.  Add a modern flair with clean lined furniture pieces or hardware.  Bring in elements like wooden beams or a wood accented chandelier not only provides natural elements but warms up your space.  Create a dream space that is rustic yet elegant, modern yet old world with the building blocks from AlysEdwards Tile & Stone.
