Work in progress for a designer fitting out a new premises for a tile business. Finding it difficult to balance a dark blue on the plywood while retaining the grain and enough contrast in the shape. Modelling the wall tiles from a catalogue was also a challenge. Still working to get that cor-ten metallic / satin ceramic feel.Newcastle Tile Co - Kitchen 02A.jpg  Newcastle Tile Co - Kitchen 01C.jpg

You need a hard work on that texture on PSD or similar, the client wants a stained blue wood?  very bold choice

try searching for a better texture or use one from the browser and use a blue color in a layer with a transparency and some filters

Cheers arqcova. Yes - I think the style is country kitchen meets industrial?
That is the PDM plywood with photoshopping. Not that great I know, but I have been testing other blend techniques and the next version for sure will be better. I think I get a definite colour swatch to match from the designer today. She is happy with other things.

I'm with Andres on this. In Photoshop create new layer, make it blue, use a layer blend mode.

This was about 2 minutes using that technique with the Multiply layer blend mode.
