The Diamond Shape
Naturally, “Diamonds Are Forever”, at least according to Ian Fleming and his alter ego, James Bond. So too does this shape keep its place in contemporary design. Recently, interior designer Gabrielle Di Stefano, contributing for Houzz, posted some very interesting comments on this timeless shape. “The diamond pattern is a standout and classic geometric design. Used for centuries as a motif on things like clothing, quilts and even knitted garments, this pattern is still just as popular now as it was hundreds of years ago,” said Ms. Di Stefano. To illustrate, Ms. Di Stefano points to a stainless steel backsplash by Elizabeth P. Lord, as seen here.
Also on Houzz, designer Zoe Lee posted a visually arresting image of the diamond shape used in a children’s nursery.
At Country Floors, we offer an interesting interpretation of the diamond with our St. Tropez limestone mosaic. This pattern allows you to insert a shape and multiple color values into a space. This can fulfill your design plans for your bathroom tile designs, your kitchen tile designs or anything else that might seem appropriate to you.
Also, consider pairing this mosaic with a complementary limestone field tile that works with one of the colors in the mosaic. If you are really brave…..pick two colors and work with both as the field!
May we also suggest a terracotta alternative with the Gothic Collection by our Creative Director, Sylvie Atanasio. As you can see, the classic warmth and range that terracotta always brings to a design plan can soften the shape.
