MIAMI, June 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Classical blue and white hues, which were used so frequently in the past, are making a return to center stage in inspiring the latest interior design trends and adding a touch of Bohemian style to interiors. This color array was formed in the Delft Ceramic School in Holland during the 17th century and has proven to be a timeless pair. Here's a look just some of the 125 Spanish tile manufacturers represented by Tile of Spain that have fresh and elegant ceramics to match this blue trend.
The Historical and Traditional Style
After being inspired by the Delft Ceramic School, blue and white was brought to the historical kitchens and bathrooms of palaces in the 17th century. The materials were bought from China, and then constructed into tiles by Italian immigrant artisans. In addition to flower motifs and traditional geometric styles, prominent design schemes in the tiles also included landscapes with windmills, plains and seas. The Oporto series from Tile of Spain manufacturer Fabresa is an excellent example of ceramic wall tile that fits this historical style.
Harmony Between Traditional and Modern Style
With this classic retrospective that is achieved by the blue and white combination, these floor tiles reach a perfect balance between past and present. The combination of modern patterns in the mix of design and geometry, as seen in Aparici Moving Blue Natural series from Tile of Spain, gives us a contemporary version of this historical trend.
With the objective of giving walls and flooring an artisan look, Spanish ceramic tile manufacturers have created wall tiles with hand-made details. These tiles blend perfectly with the blue hues to achieve a seamless vintage look. Enameled finishes like the Antic Special series from Tile of Spain manufacturer Cevica are at the forefront of this trend and give this decorative style a hint of elegance.
The new blue and white collections from ceramic companies feature hexagonal forms that are perfect for both walls and flooring. The Peronda Argilla collection of Artifiano hexagonal floor tiles creates with geometric harmony, and a relaxed yet elegant color and pattern combination.
