Huetrals: The New Neutrals in Design

We’d like to welcome our guest blogger, Kris Jarrett, who shares simple tips and ideas for decorating homes with style and timeless design on her blog Driven by Decor. We’re thrilled to have her share her passion for the beautiful new tiles from Walker Zanger’s Studio Moderne: Century Suite collection and how she envisions them being used in today’s kitchen and bath designs.

I love the warm, welcoming feeling of a home decorated in layered neutrals and am excited about kicking my neutral decorating up a notch by using “huetrals,” a term coined by interior designer Michael Berman to describe his color palette of neutral hues as seen in Walker Zanger’s gorgeous new Studio Moderne: Century Suite collection. The tiles from this new collection were created in collaboration with Berman, in which one of his goals was to “create original and fresh shapes with gorgeous ‘huetrals’ that are inspired by iconic California architecture.” And let me tell you, they’re anything but boring! These tiles have beautiful graphic patterns and dimension while still maintaining a classic simplicity that will keep them in style for the long run:

The options for integrating Studio Moderne: Century Suite tile into kitchen and bath designs are endless since their huetral palette allows you to freely mix and match with endless finishes and colors. You can even choose to use some of the patterns in tandem, like the “Ambassador” and “Diplomat” tiles, or separately depending upon how bold of an architectural backdrop you wish to create. I’d love to see “Diplomat” as a kitchen backsplash paired with Walker Zanger’s gorgeous Calacata Borghini countertops, a sexy undermount sink and faucet, and a mix of metal and wood finishes:

“Rambler” reimagines one of Studio Moderne’s most popular designs “Fretwork” in a smaller scale that works as beautifully in bathrooms as it does as a kitchen backsplash. The sterling hue is amazing!! It would look stunning in a bathroom paired with light gray walls, a warm wood vanity, and contemporary stainless faucets and shower hardware:

Another tile favorite of mine is “Montclair” with interlocking, elongated hexagons that were inspired by mid-century Neo-Egyptian styling. I see it as a show-stopping feature in a spa-like bathroom designed with watery hues, clean-lined hardware & fixtures, and a crisp white freestanding tub:

Resort Wear.

Resort Wear. It’s a far cry from the professional daytime attire most of us pull out of our closets each morning. Just the name itself transports your mind out of commuter traffic and plops you right into morning walks on the deck of a cruise ship, afternoons of lounging poolside, palm trees swaying in warm breezes, and exotic drinks laced with rum.

Originally marketed by “upscale” stores, these collections were geared to very affluent customers who were expected to spend the cold winter weeks in warm-weather climates.

Now those luxury locations such as Las Vegas, Palm Beach, and the Bahamas, once saved for holiday destinations, are places of year round living, making resort wear a mainstay clothing style that graces the runways in most all designers collections.

Here are some of our favorites straight from this years runway. And because we just couldn’t resist, we’ve paired them up with pieces from our luxury collections.

So go ahead and pour yourself something worthy of a paper umbrella, sit back relax, and Bon Voyage!
