Spring is right around the corner for those of us living in the south, but this cold snap around the country has left many of us staying indoors. If all of this time spent inside has you rethinking décor, you may want to learn a bit about color before you start redecorating. According to an article by the Pantone Color Think Tank, different colors can make us feel different emotions. Colors can be calming or provoking but did you know that the color of a room can also make you feel hot or cold?

“An executive for a paint company received complaints from workers in a blue office that the office was too cold. When the offices were painted a warm peach, the sweaters came off even though the temperature had not changed.”

Choosing tile in the right color is just as important as choosing the color for your walls, especially since depending upon the space, you may see more of the floor color than the color of the wall.

Natural stone is a great way to bring in earth tones that will warm up your space. To choose a stone that is warm in tone, look for stone tile that has shades of red, orange or yellow in it.

Take this bathroom for an example. The walls and floor are covered in our Torreon Stone Travertine. The pink/brown tones are warm, yet completely neutral so you can add pops of any color you like.

Next, take a look at this wall featuring our Scabos split stack. This stone is multi-colored, featuring warm tones that are perfect for a wall or fireplace surround or even a kitchen backsplash.

Finally, our Manhattan Marble Natural Stone Tile adds a clean, neutral foundation that coordinates nicely with any other colors or materials you choose.
