Graphic in nature, this pattern cries out for bold colors and lots of contrast. The block design, in its full repeat creates an undulating "wave" (1"x1" tiles up to to 4"x4" and then back down again) that is not evident at first glance and prevents this baby from getting too square. Marching Orders is shown here using the following laNeva Solid Colors:
- 1" x 6" horizontal liner bars used at the top & bottom: #31 Snow
- 1/2"x 6" horizontal liner bar at the bottom: #24 Steel
- 1" x 1" body: #84 Siren
- 1"x 1", 2"x 2", 3"x 3" & 4"x 4" Accent: #31 Snow
Finished with a sand colored grout.
This border measures approximately 9-1/2" tall, 3/8" thick and is sold mesh mounted in 12" lengths. There is a 24" pattern repeat on the body of the design.
Unlike yesterday, where we suggested an alternate color scheme to add some pizzaz, today's alternate should create an option to tone this wild child down a bit. For a more subdued but just as fabulous look, try a random combination of #71 Dune and #90 Oregano (shown below) in place of the red or choose any of laNeva's Solid Color tiles.
If you didn't catch yesterday's release, check out the luxe beauty of Herringbone Classico. Want to see where it all began? Here is Mondays post, with the release of Bamboo Forest. And finally, if you want the Cliff notes on our Lineal Collection, here's how it works:
laNeva Tile's "Lineal" border collection is a series of 6 pre-designed, mesh-mounted borders of our most popular patterns. Since you choose the colors and combinations, your border can be as contemporary or traditional as you'd like.
We provide the detailed drawings and the color examples and you personalize the design with our choice of any of our solid color glazes. It's still a custom design made just for you, but with no pricing surprises and a faster lead time. What's not to like with that?
Another Lineal Collection border will be featured tomorrow, and each day this week. Stay tuned. We're just getting started!
