Design Spotlight: Skara Brae

One of the most delicious things about design is the constant evolution. There are absolutely tried and true classics - a white kitchen will always be elegant and chic, while grey tones always look sophisticated, and black always adds a heavy dose of drama to a space. But while these are universal design truths, the subtle shifts in design are also what can make a space feel incredibly special. Most homeowners are looking to create a space that works specifically for them. They want their lifestyle and tastes reflected in their home - as they absolutely should!

So while classic design is never a misstep, adding a twist to your space’s finishes is an excellent way to create a space as unique as you are.

That’s why we love Cambria’s designs Skara Brae. Skara Brae reflects so much of what we love about Cambria - incredible design innovation paired with unmatched beauty and performance that results in a truly spectacular finish. Skara Brae is unquestionably a classic choice for your space - but like so many great designs, it has its own personality unlike any other.

Set against a bone-white marbled backdrop, Skara Brae features bold translucent olive green veins that plunge in various directions with subtle white and black tributaries interspersed throughout.

Skara Brae dives into a whole new palette of neutrals - earth tones that are warm yet cool, strong yet soft. The large scale veining brings plenty of drama and movement, but the colours are still soothing and natural. We love this new direction of neutrals - dusky greens and bronze tones feel like a refreshing shift after the predominantly cool toned greys & whites of the last decade.

If you are looking for a design which is breathtakingly unique yet plays well with nearly any colour palette, we would encourage you to visit our office to view a sample of Skara Brae today!
