home: trend [ textured and 3D tiling ]

There is a plethora of tiles across the high street and online to choose from to incorporate this trend into the home.

Textured and 3D tiles can add depth and interest to surfaces and create a richer look for a bathroom, kitchen, hearth or wherever you choose to use them.

These tiles can lend themselves to enhance and working alongside other trends – denim, natural finishes, geometric are just some of the trends that would work well alongside tiles that have 3D or relief designs or textured pattern or natural style finishes.

home: trend [ denim blue ]

Not so long ago we talked about using blue in the home, and going into Autumn we are still talking about it.

This time the focus is on denim blue and much paler, washout examples.

This can be found on a lot of ceramics and furniture, with blue becoming more popular in glassware too as an alternative to smoked grey or Amber, which we have seen a lot of in recent years.

Be Bold with a blue sofa or armchair. or tone it down by just using some cushions to accessorise.

A bright and airy space lends itself to denim blue, but if your room is darker then go for a more rich royal or navy blue.
