Mosaic Monday: Green and Serene Mosaic Tiles

May 23, 2016

Nothing makes a kitchen or bathroom more tranquil than beautiful hues borrowed from nature. Serene green shades—from seafoam to olive to blue-green—are valued for their calming effect. But why pick just one tone? When you design with mosaic tile, you don’t have to choose. Instead, a blend of natural hues imbues a room in a gorgeous layering of green tones, enlivening your space and infusing it with peaceful energy. Continue to explore several dream green combinations. 

Ocean-Inspired Greens 

Featured: Majestic Ocean Brick

Channel the deep blue-green sea with a backsplash that glistens in the subtle hues of an ocean wave. Crystallized glass reflects light and adds dramatic interest to a room. Opt for all glass tiles, such as our Majestic Ocean Crystallized Glass 1 x 2 Mosaic (above left), or choose a mélange of glass and stone (think ocean and sand!), such as our Europa Elongated Hexagon Mosaic (above right). The soothing tones in the glass tiles are complemented by the veining in the natural stone.

Complement this backsplash design on adjacent surfaces with neutrals— white, taupe, beige, or even dramatic black. 

Olive-Inspired Greens 

Featured: Rain Forest Blend Crystallized Glass

Olive green—the traditional color of peace—sets an equally pacific tone in a bathroom or kitchen. Our Rain Forest Blend Crystallized Glass 1x1x8mm in 12x12 Mesh (above) features three shades of olive, ranging from light to dark. As a wall tile, this tonal mosaic tile pairs well with earthy browns and beiges on surrounding surfaces. 

Cactus-Inspired Greens 

Featured: Multi Green Onyx

Greens and browns naturally pair well, so if you lean towards an earthier palette, choose a mosaic backsplash that incorporates brown, taupe and even rusts and creams, as well as green. Our Green Onyx 1x1 Polished Tiles, above left, are reminiscent of crystallized desert minerals. This backsplash tile looks especially stunning as floor-to-ceiling shower and wall tile in bathrooms, as shown below. 


Featured: Versaille Blend Glass Stone Metal

If you like the idea of incorporating stone and glass tile for a mixed media effect, our Versailles Blend Glass Stone Metal blends green, creams, brown and gray glass tiles with subtly textured stone tiles for a reflective yet centering design. 

With so many shades and styles to choose from, green mosaic tiles are a calming way to evoke natural elements in your design. Glass and stone tiles are easy to install and are suitable for backsplashes, showers, countertops, vanity tops, accent walls, and floors throughout the home.
