Hawksmoore is a quartz surface with a completely cream backdrop with dark brown veins that resemble an almost chocolate-like palette. There are rust-like, taupe colors that blend with the palettes of the veins and are outlined in a delicate manner. Capillaries are shown to be vague within the stone and while the depiction of the Hawksmoore conveys composure, there is an unmistakable clamor to the statement this stone brings.
Projects for the Hawksmoore can include backsplashes and bathtub or shower surrounds. This quartz surface is typically used for the pragmatism that comes along with the visual appeal, including the resistance that the stone has against heat, stains, and scratches. The taupe shading that intensifies the overall color scheme of the stone can emphasize the other color options that you add into your room aesthetic. Hawkmoore retains thin veins that are surrounded by even thinner veins and can be great for neutral undertones that the homeowner is looking to integrate into their home decor. Other decor pieces like a vase or a pottery item could accessorize the rest of your living spaces to draw a focal point to the Hawksmoore.
