By Bedrosians Tile & Stone | 1/25/2018

Be brave, be bold, be COLORFUL! Pantone and the most popular paint companies have declared the colors of 2018. There is no doubt that color can energize or soothe, creating a feeling of warmth or coolness in a room. Whether you bring these colors in with paint, furniture, rugs and accessories, or with your wall tile, countertops or floor tile, your space will amaze and reflect style.

Pantone - Ultra VioletPantone - Ultra Violet evokes mindfulness, spirituality, creativity, experimentation, and non-conformity. But it can be a challenge to introduce to a room. To successfully add it, try paint, rugs, pillows and art and choose tile or counters that complement purples.  Below is a selection of mosaics that can used on a fireplace or backsplash.  Use soft earth-tone porcelain on the floor and warm grey quartz on your counters.
