Cool for the Summer: Mood boards inspired by summer vacation

Wouldn't it be nice to bring a slice of summer vacation home with you? We haven't quite figured out how to fit tropical beaches, salty breezes, & bright blue skies into our luggage, but there is another way to infuse your home with summertime flair—with tile! Available in all sorts of summery colors & materials, like sea glass, mother of pearl, & teak, tile can be used to create a refreshing, relaxing, & joyful space that makes you feel like you're on vacation all year round.


Try one of these juicy hues to liven up any space! Watermelon & citrus make for delightful accent colors. Sure, they're a bit daring, but we can't help but smile when looking at them.

Island Paradise

We can't get enough of this lush, island-inspired palette. And if we came for the color, we stayed for the texture! Rich woodgrains, high variation ceramic glazes, & off-the-beaten-path patterns make these spaces extraordinary.

Freshwater Resort

Glass, stone, & river rock take us right back to weekends at the lake, but these tried-&-true elements are at home almost anywhere. Natural materials like stacked stone & mottled glass add warmth & life, a welcome relief from sterile whites & greys.

Breath of Fresh Air

Whether you're designing a beach house or a house in the suburbs, these oceanic-inspired tiles are a wave of serenity. And what better way to evoke white sand beaches than with materials pulled right from the sea?

Which of these mood boards speaks to you? Which of these tiles would you like to use in your next project? Let us know in the comments below!
