Bringing the mesmerising natural qualities of marble, limestone, travertine and slate to life, this instalment of 'creating your individual style with Karndean Designflooring' covers our striking Art Select Stones range.
These beautiful stone designs boast an intricate emboss detail that seamlessly replicates the look of real stone. From the elegant presence of our Italian marble to the timeless appeal of our slate designs, there's a stone look design that will effortlessly support and enhance your interior style and colour scheme.
So, here we pair your favourite home decorating styles – from modern rustic luxe to cool contemporary - with the ideal flooring partner...
Alderney Limestone LM03 – a particular favourite for kitchen and dining room settings, the cool chalky freshness of Alderney Island Limestone creates an airy, classic backdrop. Ideal if you want a bright base for your country kitchen where you incorporate the shabby chic look, or for the bathroom, which is taller than it is wide.
Alderney has a variety of tile sizes in each panel which are separated by a grout effect strip, creating the random tile pattern so popular with real limestone floors.
Fiore LM16 – softly oozing calm elegance, Fiore Marble is a smooth marble-effect stone design that is surprisingly versatile, happily uniting with an array of interior styles. If you’re into the dramatic use of ink blue on the walls, patent black furniture and yellow gold glint room accessories, Fiore is your highlighter. Or, if you follow the ideology of Japanese Zen, the design’s understated white and grey veining will bring that captivating calmness to any space.
However, if you’re looking for a floor design that is going to be the star of the décor show, then pair Fiore with its contrasting partner Otono to create a sophisticated, classic but bold chequerboard design.
Melbourne Slate LM05 – the warming appeal of the interior trend “rustic luxe”, is truly something to adore, particularly when there’s a hint of modern style incorporated. Raw surfaces, mixed with organic earthy hues and traditional heavy textiles – think faux fur, leather and calico – create luxurious comfort. If this is your home décor style, then our Melbourne Slate is a perfect match. With its rich and forgiving multi-colour design, it bravely blends mid-grey, blue, orange and earth-brown tones; the result is beautiful.
Washburn LM07 & LM17 - seeking ways to seamlessly link a large, open-plan living space to the rest of your home? Then continuity in your colour scheme is key. Not only on your walls, but also in your flooring. A clever and simple way to integrate two areas is with our matching FreeLength tiles. The size of the small tile will help define the unity of the area in a subtle and transitional manner. Perfectly exampled by our Washburn design, pictured above. This look boasts the cool and fresh travertine stone features - delicate, light organic hues - with a soft mottled pattern that adds interest and complexity.
