While trends change and design continually evolves, some things stand the test of time and emerge as undeniable classics. From the time of Ancient Greece, the look of marble has enchanted and endured. Now, we’ve updated this classic style for a modern age in new 5151 Empira White. At home in a contemporary context, our durable interpretation of Calacatta marble is less ostentatious and more organic, introducing a natural contrast to urban interiors and industrial materials.
Empira White beautifully complements the continuing trend towards brass accessories and light fixtures, updating architectural spaces and contrasting the classic with the contemporary. If you’re not ready to commit to a large statement piece, start small with a lamp or side table, or switch out your cabinet hardware for brass fittings. And don’t be afraid to mix stainless steel with brass in the kitchen.
FLOOR TO FEELING
One of the top trends for today’s kitchens is the pairing of natural wood textures with bright whites. Empira White’s dominant, almost black veining creates a dramatic interplay with its pure white base, and creates a striking contrast with stained wood flooring. To ensure that the floor doesn't compete with your countertop or island, you might want to stay away from wood that has a similar pattern to the veining of the quartz.
REFRESH YOUR PALETTE
Empira White is a pure white with dark grey veining, which makes it well suited to a wall colour of a subtle off-white or cool grey shade. This creates a harmonious look, with just enough contrast to make the beauty of the quartz shine through. Similarly, when considering cabinetry, keep it in the same colour family with white or taupe.
Nothing complements the classic look of Empira White like accents of green, but don’t go too far. Consider a sage wall paint or muted olive ceramics. You can also add more life to your space with an abundance of potted plants that enhance the natural charm of your quartz surface.
