So let’s give the green light to material slabs such as stone-effect stoneware have the green light, or bold intertwining shapes and colors such as those of the large Desert Soul marble-effect slabs.
Classic charm but in a contemporary key
Marble-effect stoneware tiles are perfect for giving new life to classic accessories such as a fireplace: in order to interpret the warm atmosphere created by a fire in a modern way, choose a stoneware cladding with intense shades and crisp veins. The same applies to traditional equipped walls or nooks used as bookcases, which can be embellished with sophisticated, contemporary backgrounds.

While cladding a living room wall can be an excellent trick to visually separate it from the open kitchen, covering all the walls with the same finish used for the floors allows, on the other hand, to create an enveloping and sophisticated atmosphere. The most suitable shades are undoubtedly beige, ecru and lighter shades of gray, also to be taken into consideration as bedroom wall ideas because they give personality to the room without weighing it down.
