At the biggest fair of ceramic tile and bathroom equipment Cersaie, held each year in the Italian city of Bologna, two colors dominated this year’s exhibition...
Colors are traditionally found on tiles that decorate home. They provide dynamics, vibrancy and depth of tiles and thus the space we are in. This year, manufacturers have replaced the previous trend "bigger is better" – (tiles of large dimensions) with colors and energy they contribute to the interior we live in. In addition to greenery, yellow-green was also very popular, as well as elegant gray-green and olive green shades. Olive is present on ceramic tree and on ceramics imitating marble.
One of the colors that marked this year's fair is definitely green. According to the American Institute for Colors “Pantone” green is considered to be the symbol of new beginnings and freshness. It also represents the wealth of nature which motivates and warms observers. On tiles, you can even find a clear association with nature, such as leaves or motifs from the jungle.
One of the colors that dominated exhibition stands is blue, a color that reminds of sky and sea. On the large slabs, it was possible to see the imitation of the cross-section of gemstone, which attracted a lot of attention. Blue also found a place on the ceramic that imitates wood and provides an interesting and effective contrast to orange-brown tones of the tree. The same color combination was used to create the effect of rust on ceramics in a gray-blue color that resembles metal.
Blue is thought to have a good effect on the body and mind. It is firmly attached to stability and tranquility and expresses health, healing, calmness and softness. And that's exactly what every home needs.
