MIX & MATCH CERAMIC: Created from the mash-up phenomenon (re-mix of two previous works to create a third). In this case ceramic tiles are mixed with diversity: materials, textures, colors, formats, and graphic motifs. The object in these projects is to find unique solutions in this coming together of different combinations which before could have never been possible. The versatility of mix and match tiles makes it possible to be used in a living room floor or a kitchen wall, combining them with other materials to give the space a personal touch.

The result is unique and personal since darker colors can be used to add energy or warmth to a room. To make the design more complex and interesting installers can play with Zigzag patterns like those seen below from Equipe Ceramicas. Equipe Ceramicas - Country Series Wall tiles are a color mix in gradient style white/light gray/ pearl gray/graphite/anthracite (2.5"X8").
