How do I Achieve the Polished Casual Look?

Published by Publié par Jonathan Hendy on le Jun 18, 2016 4:00:16 PM


Polished casual is about form and functionality.

Subtle textures
“Travertina is the epitome of subtle texture,” says Louis-Philippe Viens, respected Techo-Bloc architect. After all, Travertina was created to mimic real travertine stone, which is highly used in California and in warmer climates that don’t experience the North’s harsh freeze-thaw cycles. In other words, Travertina slabs are a durable and practical concrete slab that allow our Canadian, North East USA and Midwest customers to enjoy the look of travertine outdoors without the fragile characteristics and risks of the natural stone equivalent.

Neutral color tones
Polished casual is about effortless beauty. To create this look you don’t want to opt for flashy colors or clashing color pallets. Sticking to neutral color pallets in beige tones, browns or greys creates that soothing uniform effect for the eye.
