Wavy White Whisper

IMG_1242[1]Anyone looking for some unusual and impressive wall tiles and decors from Brazil could do far worse than check out Colormix.

Linea Etnia by Colormix

This company has impressed Tile Addict at Revestir for many years now, and 2017 was no exception.  The product portfolio seems particularly well chosen and offers clear commercial potential.

I could have chosen any of  a number of strong ranges, but I particularly liked the way  Linha Etnia was displayed.  It is a simple gloss white glazed tile that comes in 200 by 200, 130 by 130 and 100 by 200mm formats.

It may not be that original, but it has a pleasing, timeless look … with obvious retro appeal.

It has been niggling me for some time, and then the old grey cells took over.  This range is none other than Etnia by Vives.  I know Colormix combine their own manufactured product with imported ones: I just didn’t make the connection at the time.  So, in fairness to Vives, I have shown an Etnia roomset above.
