Branco de Mos
This simple and elegant limestone provides that clean, simple and fresh base for your summer makeover. A fine-grained limestone, the slightly darker colouration of some of elements give the pattern some movement which works well, especially in larger pieces.
Combined with a plain white, the Branco de Mos has been used effectively in this bathroom design, with the sink in particular showing how it can be used to pick out features in a simplistic yet attractive way.
Take one of the best things about the summer – enjoying bright blue skies and staring at the clouds as they roll by without a care in the world – and turn that image into a pattern that you can use to decorate your home. What you will end up with is Calciite Blue quartzite. Even if that is just my own version of summer and not necessarily yours, I think you will agree this stone is a delight to behold and definitely deserves its place amongst the top stones to decorate with.
If you are looking for a stone to really crank up the Summer vibe, this is it.
Oman White, much like the Branco de Mos is a great canvas for creating something special. This time you can see how effective it is when utilising the stone for an entire room design. The clever concealment of a cabinet, built into the wall, is something that you can do with this stone due to the subtle pattern, which gives enough movement that seams can be disguised.
In terms of specification, this is an extremely tough limestone, with an incredibly low absorption rate. These facts make it a perfect fit for the wet and humid environment of a bathroom.
