Pastels are always extremely popular at this time of year, with soothing mint greens still very much in favour. This looks very chic when combined with gold detailing - why not try a pale tile with a metallic gold grout for something a bit different? Otherwise, blush pinks or pale blues can be a great way of using
As ever, Spring conjures images of fresh flowers in zesty shades. Yellow is always a favourite due to its connection with daffodils that pop up everywhere at this time of year. Including drop in feature tiles of flowers ordelicate butterflies (shown top) in a splashback or feature wall can serve as a nod to Spring days, and is sure to raise a smile, even in the depths of winter.
Foral tiles with a more contemporary edge (like Seville) are a great way of suggestions Spring details whilst keeping the look modern. Abstract designs in the Odyssey collection are suggestive of blooms without being twee. Combined with a contemporary palette of rich indigos, vibrant reds and cool greys, the look is effortlessly chic.
