No matter where you reside, we can all appreciate an outdoor kitchen to help embrace the beautiful outdoors. Subtle white and cream-toned pavers match perfectly with various natural stones and greenery to help bring your outdoor projects to life. Incorporate Tierra Ivory Pavers into your hardscapes to add a touch of refinement to your exteriors, so you and your loved ones can take in the terrace views.

With inspiration stemming from the great outdoors, the Forever Outdoors movement allows us to seamlessly move from outside scenery to the kitchenscape. This trend allows us to open our doors in a worry-free zone filled with porcelain tiles that are suitable to use inside and coordinating pavers out. Easy installation, maintenance and cleaning at its finest, so we can gather the troops once again in a welcoming and safe environment. 


Gathering around the fireplace just got better. This picturesque patio allows us to warm up next to the fire with a beautiful fireplace facade in Glacial Black Stacked Stone with Beton™ Antracite Arterra Pavers below the stairs, making a pathway to the garden. 

Enhance your exteriors by adding cozy textiles, comfy furniture and lush greenery to your patios to create an inviting atmosphere. The extra square footage outdoors is a bonus space that might just create your next dream staycation! 


Getting outdoors sometimes simply starts with opening the doors to a wandering path. Incorporating the essence of modern-day luxe in the kitchen with Grigia Porcelain Wood Tile adds a touch of sophistication to your interiors with wood-look planks and coordinating pavers outside to give your property a sense of natural beauty. Adding Black Polished Pebbles to the waterfront allows for enhanced exploration.

Design Tip: Porcelain pavers and wood-look tile can be applied to exteriors and interiors to help make a seamless transition from the inside out. Incorporate natural stone ledgers to vertical surfaces and matching pebbles throughout your yard. Don’t forget to coordinate furniture, greenery and appliances to complete the entire look.

Arched windows, blushed-toned walls and complementing furniture are design trends we can all appreciate, but what adds depth to our interiors is the flooring we see throughout the house. From the moment you walk in, Brianka Luxury Vinyl Planks will catch your eye with light creamy hues and darker knots and grains. Complete the look with a beautiful dessert hued kitchen island and quartz countertop by adding Calacatta Azai to your decor. 

Inspired by Mediterranean artistry, Global Spice encompasses a range of warm colors, from rich terracottas to rosy blushes and rich burgundy hues. The color palette adds soul to interiors, especially when paired with beautiful surfaces that bring alive the essence of natural wood, stone and brick. 


Whether you’re nestled in a countryside villa or simply like a worldly Mediterranean decor style, your kitchen should complement the rest of the home–especially when it’s the one room in the house where we all seem to gather the most. From washing the dishes to rummaging through the fridge, everyone in the household is sure to pass through the kitchen every day. With such high traffic, this area needs to not only have an appealing aesthetic but also needs to be durable and easy to maintain. With Midnight Corvo™ Quartz Countertops, you can achieve the look of having a sophisticated kitchen while ensuring it can withstand everyday wear and tear.

With the look of natural stone and wood, you can accomplish refinement for your interiors by adding quartz countertops and luxury vinyl planks. Complete the villa look by adding antique picture frames, vases, shelving and other Mediterranean-like decor.


There’s nothing better than the look of simplicity. With the creamy shades of Marza Pearl Subway Tile and contrasting dark rich browns in Estate Oak Wood Flooring™, create a room full of warmth. Add a touch of style with a sleek dining table and curved velvet chairs. Brighten up the room with a splash of color using persimmon, terracottas and copper tones for the ultimate Global Spice statement.

Design Tip: Create inviting interiors with wood-look luxury vinyl planks, stone-look countertops and brick-like tiles by using natural tones, so you can bring your environments to life. These neutral materials create a base color palette for you to layer on trending colors with paint, textiles, and case goods in your home.

Having a spacious laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer and shelving for laundry, soap, an ironing board and other gadgets allows you to get unwanted chores done with ease. Extremely durable and waterproof, complete the look with Calacatta Legend™ Luxury Vinyl Tile

Design Tip: To create the look and feel of More Than Mod, incorporate a variety of contrasting black and white tones to your surfaces and mix in blonde hued wood to bring the look all together.

This one-of-a-kind tile makes anyone feel welcomed with its approachable warmth and equally bold statement. From the kitchen to the bathrooms and beyond, add complementing decor in neutral golden warm tones to help make this shimmering tile shine even more than it already does.


There’s nothing more comforting than a desert hued home. Bring the vibes to life with Calacatta Leon Gold™ by incorporating this quartz into kitchen islands, countertops and backsplashes. Add matching golden brown cabinetry, furniture and decorations to complete The Golden Hour. This honey colored thick veined quartz slab is a showstopper! 

Design Tip: When working with warm materials, layering is your friend! A mix of blonde, cream, gold, cocoa, and honey can create a visual effect that feels like a warm hug. One key is to pair these hues back with bright white to keep the palette feeling fresh and new. Happy Mixing!

Taking in the city views from the washroom should be relaxing and tranquil. Achieve serenity by incorporating a watercolor glazed Renzo Jade Ceramic Tile accent wall, with Sande Grey Porcelain Tile walls and Midnight Montage Porcelain Flooring. Finish the look off with complementing shelving, mirrors and fixtures.

The mix and match of complex shades of green and punches of navy create an elevated pairing that is trending in a bold way. In bathrooms, materials need to be water-resistant and fortunately they come in all shapes, sizes and materials. Worry proof surfaces are top of mind and now offered in a variety of on-trend looks. 


Whether you’re reading a book or watching TV, a welcoming family room is a must in every home. You’ll require a comfy couch, ottoman and matching chairs to make sure everyone has a place to sit.
