The Royal eatery, situated in a historic Washington, D.C. area, uses three different color blends of Hexagon cement tiles. One color group with contrasting light and dark warm tones is used for an accent wall by the bar. A warm blend of different red colors is found in the men's bathroom and assorted grey scale colors provide a neutral palette for the women's bathroom.
Arabesque is a unique line of Spanish tiles that can be used as pavers, flooring tile, or for wall coverings. The collection pays homage to a deeply rooted and rich heritage of traditional Moorish and Spanish tiles that feature interlaced geometric patterns and non-rectilinear formats. Each tile is hand-crafted and exquisitely designed here in the USA. Available in traditional bisque colors as well as softer, contemporary shades, these unique formats, including hexagons, octagons and pickets, are sure to enhance any setting.

In the case of The Royal eatery, located in Washington, DC's historic LeDroit Park neighborhood, the accent wall by the bar features 200 sq. ft. of 8" hexagon in a hand-selected blend of the following colors: Mission Red, City Hall Red, Cotto Dark, Cotto Gold, Natural Gray, Antik Gray, Hacienda, Hacienda Flash. Designer Lucia Windsor Freeman of aggregate architecture+design captured the look and feel of the neighborhood's ambiance and historical perspective with the materials she chose and specified.
Moreover, the geometric theme of this split-level, 45-seat gathering place was carried through to the restrooms where 90 square feet of 8-inch Hexagon tiles were used for the women's restroom in a color blend featuring City Hall Red, Hacienda, and Cotto Gold.

With its simple yet creative fare, this second project from restaurateur Paul Carlson, has been open since late spring 2015. The restaurant's concept combines Carlson's international background together with his love of cooking, good drinks, and spending time with family and friends.
