Jaw Dropping Coral Gables Home Revitalized by Italgres

This beautiful Coral Gables home was recently outfitted with the finest Italgres tiles. The kitchen and each bathroom sport a textured accent wall that adds character to the space, while the off-white finish adorning the rest of the room provides balance. Meanwhile, large format (48×48) tiles fill the spacious floor of the living room and a pleasant natural wood finish leads the awed guests up to the second floor. It’s all porcelain tile folks! Beautiful, versatile Italgres tile.

Get back to a formal dining room

A trend that is in vogue in the last few months is that of going back to shared dining rooms, with style.

Give a formal look to your dining room, mixing old and new designs. Like this dining room is using the fancy chandelier and classic art to complement their dining set.

Mixing all of these textures and design elements shines a spotlight on your dining room, as a space that you want to share with your friends and family.

In Italgres we love to have fun by creating outstanding combinations and unique spaces. We recomend this trend for formal rooms, mixing older styles and innovative design. This is how you can create unforgettable spaces.

Cersaie 2016

The Cersaie 2016 exhibition, epitome of elite tile design in Europe, had quite energetic audience in 2016. During the last week of September, surrounded by the magnificent architecture of Bolonia, U.S. buyers, especially from Florida, were discrete among the European trends. Meanwhile, Italgres was indulging in the cutting edge and innovative materials from factories like Lamborghini and VIVA:

Among our favorite trends from the event:

  1. WOOD: There’s a lot of new stuff in the large formats ( 8”x48” , 10”x60” , 10”x72” and 12”x90” or even bigger) and rustic designs. We also saw some modern wood designs, which had been lacking. The wood effect has been a strong trend although at this point it’s hard to see something interesting. The best wood tiles are still coming from FLORIM. We also saw some small format wood tiles (4”x12” or even smaller), straying away from the large format that had become standard in this style.
  1. CEMENT: This was the second biggest trend, and it has been a solid choice for the past few years. The novelty here was the format. We saw a lot of 48”x48”, 60”x60” and even bigger. Colors and effects stayed mostly on the same styles as previous years. Textures were outstanding with natural and lacquered finishes.
  1. STONE: We saw a lot of stone designs in regular and large formats.
  1. MARMOL: We saw mostly slim and large formats (48”x96” and 60”x120”). There was a lot of calacatta, statuario, carrara and dark travestinos with different polished, soft and matte finishes. However, only a few exhibitions had real quality and variety.
  1. HYDRAULIC: This was a very prevalent trend. It’s been growing a lot for the past 5 years and it continues, although the good ones can only be found in specific factories.
  1. SMALL PIECES: There was an attempt to introduce small formats that in the rustic and the modern styles. Among the formats in the exhibition there was 2”x5”, 2”x12”,4”x4”, etc.

There was also a lot of mixed materials at Cersaie 2016, a lot of tiles had textile designs, mixes of cement with textiles, wood with textiles or all together.

This exhibition gave us a bit of a window into next year’s trends. You can be assured that we’ll be bringing you the best of them to our stores.  

2016 Color Trends- Wild Green

2016 Color Trends- Wild Green

Dark tonalities of green have been trending this year. It used as the primary color of a room, serving as the focus point of a wall, combines with furniture of neutral colors that don’t compete with the green.

This is an ideal color for those who like the freshness of nature and need environments that inspire tranquility.

Come to our Showrooms in Doral and Wynwood where we’ll show you all the ways you can mix tiles with this wonderful color.

2016 Color Trends- Energetic Yellow

2016 Color Trends- Energetic Yellow

The color of the sun evokes energy and happiness. Yellow is a warm color that brings light into your rooms.

In excess yellow can create too much tension, so we recommend using it only with decorative elements or as a focal point that draws attention to a contrasting area of the room, mixed with pristine whites, other yellow tones and greys that lessens the intensity of the bright yellow.

The combination possibilities are infinite. Our team at our Showrooms will guide you through all your options. Come visit us at our Doral or Wynwood locations.

Color trends-Serene Blue

2016 Color Trends- Serene Blue

A reminder of the classic British weather,  blue with gray or clear tonalities has been part of this year’s trends.

This is the color of confidence and calm. It’s perfect for living rooms and bathrooms, and clearer tones can be used in bedrooms.

However, too much blue can be depressing, especially in darker tones. That’s why we encourage you to consider create contrast in your designs with white, high ceilings, dark toned floor tiles and plants that freshen up the environment. Green or aqua accessories can also bring a certain marine relaxation.

For more guidance on how to create your dream rooms come to our Showrooms in Doral and Wynwood.
