Thursday 7 September 2017, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: Trends

Being bold with your decorating choices doesn’t have to mean in your face feature walls or clashing colours, it’s about finding the right style for you. But when it comes to making these decisions we know it can be a daunting process! If you want your home to reflect your bold personality, here's a few styling ideas to help…

1. Rich Colours

With the rise of jewel like tones this year it’s becoming increasingly more popular to find these shades for your home. Taking a confident step away from pastels and creams to deeper darker shades is a bold yet rewarding decision, here’s some of our favourites:

2. Perfect Patterns

Striking or even subtle patterns make for beautiful memorable interiors; we love the delicate detailing in this Ming mosaic, perfect for an unforgettable bathroom:

Statement floors are also a great way to add drama and style, our Odyssey collection is best placed for this, featured below are Lewtrenchard and Bolero.

3. Fabulous Functionality 

The ideal combination, especially for floors.  Odyssey tiles are again great for this but for something more traditional then definitely take a look at our Victorian Floor Tile Collection. Below is a look at some classic and modern options:

5. Finishing Touches

The right finishing touched can really complete a look and make for a unique visual focal point. Border tiles are often overlooked, but can really add that coveted wow factor to a finished design. You can use them to frame, highlight, zone and finish an area to perfection.
