Rustic Color Palette Tips
There are two main color groups: plain or solid colors, and flash colors. Plain colors will exhibit slight variation in color that is clearly distinguishable from tile to tile; but, they will have all have the same shade. Flash colors provide moderate color variation and the amount of color may vary considerably from tile to tile. This variation in surface color provides a weathered, worn, or antiqued look to the tile. Additionally, blends of colors can be created using different colors and textures.
You'll notice many of the colors take their cues from the look they represent. Classic colors provide the classic look of clay bisque or terra cotta. Colors like Cotto Gold or Mission Red have the look of traditional clay bisque used to make Spanish pavers, terra cotta, and red clay tiles. Our Saltillo-looking tiles are a group of colors that provide the look of Saltillo. Our plain tiles provide a more contemporary color palette with colors like light gray, bone, and green. By the way, the term 'rustic' refers to the style of the cement tile. Rustic and Arabesque tiles are made with slightly irregular sizes, rough edges, facets and chips that make the tile appear weathered and aged. The amount of color shade variation is shown in parenthesis: V2, V3, or V4. Tiles designated as V2 exbibit slight color variation; V3 moderate; and V4 is random color variation.
Tile colors are shown with standard or smooth finish. We recommend installing with a 1/2" grout joint to accommodate the irregular edges and dimensions.
