So many of you have chosen Taj Mahal Quartzite for your countertops, I thought it was about time I put together a few color schemes for you!
For those of you who aren't familiar, Taj Mahal quartzite is a natural stone quarried from Brazil. Many people love quartzite in general because it often looks similar to marble, but is more durable.
You'll notice that because Taj Mahal a natural stone, there can be quite a bit of variation in color from slab to slab - My sample, for example, seems to have more of the gray/taupe undertones and less of the gold veining you often see with Taj Mahal quartzite.
While you always want to test your colors and finishes yourself, the suggestions below should be a great place to start even if your slab looks a little different than mine.
So without further ado, let's get started!
1. Taj Mahal Quartzite with Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray

In this first color scheme above, I paired our Pearled Subway Tile with Benjamin Moore's White Dove cabinets and Edgecomb Gray walls. You'll notice all the color schemes in this post use this cabinet color - I love that it's a nice, warm white without being too white. To help create flow into adjoining rooms, consider using the same White Dove color on all your trim as well.
2. Taj Mahal Quartzite with Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray (50%)

The second color scheme is a little lighter and brighter. This shows our Damask handmade tile in Glossy White, and I lightened up the wall color by using Benjamin Moore's Edgecomb Gray at 50% strength. I threw in a couple other tile color swatches to consider in the lower left - the larger tile is Wheat and the smaller one is Glossy Taupe.
