Calacatta Clara Quartz

The Soothing Vibes of Soft, Ethereal Calacatta Clara

Modern life is full of challenging demands that amp up stress and leave you feeling pulled in a million directions. The last thing you want when you come home is a space that bombards your senses.



Neutral home designs are about more than mass appeal for resale; they’re meant to create a tranquil ambiance that helps you to relax and clear your mind. Including natural elements like wooden cabinets and stone countertops only helps to reinforce this aesthetic, especially when you choose varieties that feature soft color palettes and minimal patterning.

Calming Calacatta Clara quartz is the perfect fit for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where you’re hoping to create a peaceful, soothing environment. 

Even if your busy household is filled with active kids, pets, family members, and friends, a calm interior design can make you feel at ease and allow you to better enjoy time with loved ones. How will Calacatta Clara contribute to your ideal home atmosphere?

A Pacifying Design

Calacatta Clara quartz is characterized by a soft, milky-white backdrop brushed by sparse, delicate, linear veins in pale gray that traverse the surface from end to end. This design also features whispers of patchy, barely-there gray clouding that add subtle dimension to the slab.

This quartz design features MSI’s exclusive LumaLuxe formulation, delivering enhanced interaction with environmental lighting that mimics the luminosity of marble and creates the realistic stone look you love. The added depth and dimension this technique delivers only help to elevate the luxury in your interior design.

Versatility Every Homeowner Will Adore

One of the most attractive aspects of Calacatta Clara quartz is that it’s so versatile. It can pair with any design style, from traditional to modern, and almost any combination of elements.

If you love the Zen feeling from the nude wood and neutrals that dominate Scandinavian design, you’ll find that the gentle quality of Calacatta Clara is the perfect complement. 

Alternately, you may be vibing with the maximalist movement currently taking over design. This subtle quartz adds a tranquil moment to the visual cacophony of colored cabinets, textured tile, and patterned wallpaper, for example.

This design brings visual interest to an all-white kitchen or acts as a natural transition from dark lower cabinets to white uppers. It also complements a range of wood tones, from warm, golden oak, to rich, heavy-grained walnut. Even better, this counter surface offers a timeless appeal that means you can update other elements down the road without having to swap in new countertops.

A Counter Surface You Can Rely On

MSI quartz is incredibly strong and durable, featuring 93% natural, crushed quartz paired with pigments and resins for binding. It’s known for its outstanding resistance to staining and other everyday concerns like scratching, etching, chipping, and cracking.

Even better, this nonporous surface is food-safe and resistant to microbes, which makes it a great option for families and homeowners concerned with maintaining a sanitary environment. For both practical and aesthetic considerations, quartz is the ideal surface material for busy, modern households.

Caring for Quartz

Appearance and function are naturally of great concern when choosing the best counter surface material, but with quartz, you’ll gain the added advantage of low maintenance. These surfaces are incredibly easy to care for.

Typically, a wipe-down with a damp cloth or sponge is good enough to clean your countertops, but you could also use gentle dish soap or an all-in-one household cleanser for the task. Like any counter surface, you’ll want to avoid harsh or abrasive chemicals, but you won’t ever have to worry about sealing this solid, nonporous surface.
