5 Ways to Wear White After Memorial Day

Fashionistas will tell you, it’s only acceptable to wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The fashion industry often influences retailers; did you see our post about the 2019 PANTONE Color of the Year?

Now that Memorial Day Weekend is here, it’s time to kick off the unofficial start of summer with 5 tile collections, available with Architectural Ceramics of course, that feature white in a big way.

No matter your style, you’re sure to find the right fit for your residential or commercial tile project.

Candango Collection

Using white marble in a space, like putting on a pair of pointy-toed heels, is always a timeless choice. But what if you want to mix in a modern aesthetic as well? Like opting for leopard-print pumps, our Candango Collection marries tradition and modernity.

Illusion Collection

It’s not an illusion, our next collection features glossy and matte white decorative tiles in three subtle textures. Used the right way, the quiet textures from our Illusion Collection can make a loud statement.

The 10″x30″ field size and the three patterns make the otherwise white ceramic wall tile unique. While traditional white 3″x6″ subway tile is timeless, our Illusion Collection gives it a fashion-forward update.

Want to give your master bathroom the illusion that you’re stepping into a chic hotel bath? Try using the Line Deco pattern, shown below, to achieve a modern feel.

Invisible 9 Collection

Is it OK to mix patterns in fashion? In tile, we say yes! Our Invisible 9 Collection does just that. The trick, is that the glossy white pattern which is printed on a matte white porcelain body, goes almost unnoticed until light is reflected off of the tile’s surface.

Each pattern, shown above, is printed on a 9″x9″ decorative tile. When placing an order, it’s important to note that the mix of patterns is always a varied ratio.

Prime Collection

Our next glossy white tile collection is a prime example of how a subtle texture on a traditional tile shape can change everything. Our Prime Collection, is a machine-made ceramic wall tile with a soft undulating surface that makes it feel like a hand-made product.
