We love the color black and try to use a little bit of it in every room we design. It acts like a neutral because it basically goes with anything. Black looks amazing even by itself. It really never goes out of style. ~ Lance M. Jackson, President/Creative Director, Parker Kennedy Living

Taking its inspiration from nomadic, spirited cultures, Crossville’s latest line of fabric-finish tile makes an impression in boho-chic style. Bohemia, shown here in the Wanderer colorway offers an unapologetic, fresh-take on texture.



I see dark, moody colors as a big trend for 2018. It’s glamorous, sexy, and a little dangerous. Sophisticated, dark colors are gorgeous in jewel box powder rooms and dramatic dining rooms when paired with high gloss trim and warm brass light fixtures. ~Marlaina Teich, Interior Designer, Marlaina Teich Designs.

With looks as good as natural stone delivered straight from the quarry, our Cava in Noir Desir is dark, dramatic, and sophisticated.
