Besotted with Brittanicca Gold? This highly coveted and classically elegant Cambria design features flowing, multi-hued streams of copper gold, fog, and translucent greige, all accompanied by wisps and ribbons of warm earth tones against a temperate white background.
We’ve made no secret of our love for Brittanicca, Brittanicca Warm, and Brittanicca Gold, all of which round out the aesthetic options in Cambria’s Marble Collection. Often used as a marble alternative, Brittanicca Gold provides the best of both worlds with a design that is just as beautiful as it is easy to love—and care for.
Unlike marble and other surface choices, Cambria does not require sealing or polishing, and cleaning it is as simple as warm water and a soft cloth. Even mild soap is optional. And whereas marble is very porous and conducive to staining, Cambria is nonabsorbent, so spills do not become stains and it will not draw in moisture that can harbor harmful bacteria.
Marble can also be difficult to install, has to be maintained regularly, and can stain. With Cambria, you never have to worry about maintenance, staining, or performance. Cambria is always professionally installed, warranty protected, and maintenance free.
Of course, Brittanicca Gold’s beauty is unmatched, too, making the style the perfect choice for design-lovers. Here, a few of our favorite Brittanicca Gold interiors to inspire your next design.
A Bookmatched Bathroom
The design of the newly opened Omni Viking Lakes Hotel—a four-star luxury property located at the Viking Lakes sports and recreation development in Eagan, Minnesota, home to the Minnesota Vikings headquarters and TCO Stadium—features a nuanced aesthetic inspired by the rugged and resilient temperament of the historic Minnesota region.
“We used a Brittanicca Gold bookmatch in the guest suite that aligns the veins,” says ESG Architecture & Design senior interior designer Bridget Hale, who helped ideate the interior schematic along with ESG director of interiors Ann Fritz. “It really adds a beautiful backdrop to the freestanding tub.”

A Showy Surround
“The showpiece in our purple noir suite is the Brittanicca Gold fireplace surround,” says Hale. “Not only is it using a mitered edge, but it also bevels, so it’s really sculptural.”
