Earth tones are rising from the ash of blah-blah grays to showcase shades in warm, comforting tile styles. Creams and beige tones also provide a stylish alternative to stark whites in farmhouse decor and minimalist palettes.

Transitional spaces (those that marry decor features) benefit from the easy tones of beiges and browns that find common ground in all decor styles. Some design perspectives suggest that earth tones help “ground” a space to create a soothing environment. Ceramic tile options with freeze-thaw resistance mean you can use your tile of choice outside as well as inside. Of course, earth tones used in outdoor living areas coordinate well with Mother Nature and because ceramic tile is made of naturally occurring materials, you are not introducing artificial materials or toxins into the earth.
