If you love the look of marble tile but balk at the maintenance requirements and potentially staggering price, you'll find Mistery, a new tile from Rosa Gres, pretty chill: it looks like polished stone, but it's really digitally printed ceramic. The easy-to-clean tile is produced in four colors (gray, white, sand and "blue stone") and is equally suitable for interiors or a deck. "We're already seeing many clients request a flow of color from inside to outside," said Jason Quimby, who oversees the United States division of the Barcelona-based company. Even raised pool trims are available. The tile comes in two generous sizes, about 12 by 25 inches and about 19 by 31 inches, and is $3.99 to $5.79 a square foot. It will be in stores in January; until then, you can order it by phone. Information: (305) 591-3880 or rosagres.com/en.
