It’s the fourth week of our National Tile Day celebration and countdown to Coverings 2022.
After so much time spent indoors the past couple years, people are gravitating toward earth tones and a desire to connect with nature. We’re inviting more natural colors into the home and onto the walls, floors, and other surfaces. At the same time, many homeowners are looking to add a luxurious vibe to the spaces in which we spend so much time.
Enter earthy jewel tones.
Jewel tones that you can find in nature — including amber, clay, brick, aquamarine, teal, and emerald — are popular on tile palettes for 2022. These earthy colors give us a grounded connection to the outdoors while the saturated jewel tones add a regal quality.
What better combination?
The color amber spans a range of yellow, orange, and brown hues. This variety gives you a number of choices to fit with your home’s existing aesthetic while still incorporating a vibrant earthy jewel tone.

Clay has traditionally been reserved for rustic and Mediterranean looks, but modern interior decor is finding the hue to be much more versatile. Whether you go with a terracotta or a more reddish tone, clay tile adds warmth and richness to any space.

Love the drama of red tile but wonder if it’s too much for your space? Brick is an excellent alternative.
Brick-hued tile comes in options with varying levels of red, pink, and brown undertones, so you can choose a shade with just the right amount of boldness.

Reminiscent of tropical bodies of water and the sky on a clear summer day, aquamarine tile instills calm in any space.

Teal tile blends the calming sensation of the slightly lighter and bluer aquamarine shade with the regality of a peacock. If you ask us, there’s no color that better combines the best of earth tones and jewel tones than teal.

The height of luxury, emerald looks just as good on a tile wall as it does on our fingers. This emerald tile plays up its natural elements with variegated coloring.
