Marmi Nero is effortlessly chic, its black marble tones are great for those looking to add drama and character to a scheme. This deep-toned black marble-effect tile comes in three formats in two finishes; a gentle honed option with a realistic stone look and feel, a polished finish for a glossy, elegant look and a honed hexagon mosaic.   Statuario Nuovo Our Statuario Nuovo tiles are inspired by the world’s most premium Carrara marbles, featuring elegant veining in neutral tones of white and grey.

  4. Interior Trends 2021: Sanctuary

    Interior Trends 2021: Sanctuary Over the past year, the need for creating calm and serene spaces within the home has become even more paramount. Confined to the walls that surround us, escapism and relaxation are what homeowners are seeking to achieve when updating an interior décor scheme – and we couldn’t be more on board with this design and lifestyle trend.   Our Sanctuary trend looks at ways to bring tranquility into the home to establish distinct areas for us to unwind in and harmonise our emotional well-being. When it comes to colourways, it’s all about the soft pinks and warm beige's to really embrace a calming and classic neutral palette. Textures also play a key part when it comes to designing a sanctuary. Tactile surfaces, either smooth and glossy or structured and matt, will help create a cosy, spa-like feel and tiles are the perfect material for incorporating either of these textures. For a matt wall covering, our Trellis collection in our Living range is the perfect tile for encapsulating this trend. Featured below is Trellis Lace which has been teamed with warm brown tones and gold accents – a design that exudes tranquility and style. If you're looking to incorporate more dusky pink tones and bolder prints, our Odyssey Taupe tiles in our Leigh pattern will provide a cosy, feminine feel whilst maintaining a matt finish. If you love luxury and want to take this look a step further, look to incorporate some more reflective finishes for an added touch of opulence. Our White Pearl Hexagon mosaics or large-format Bianco Oro marble-effect tiles are the epitome of luxe décor; their reflective and polished surfaces bounce light around a room for a bright and welcoming atmosphere. To complete the look, incorporating a number of other natural materials is a must. From wooden accessories, indoor plants or even some dried pampas grass will encourage that feeling of serenity and bring all design aspects together.

  5. Interior Trends 2021: Home Hub

    Interior Trends 2021: Home Hub With many of us now working and schooling from home, the way we’re using the spaces that surround us on a day-to-day basis has changed significantly. Pre-2020, our homes were predominately places of relaxation, socialisation and recreation and now, with the restrictions imposed in response to the pandemic, our properties have become more multi-functional than ever before.   Our Home Hub trend looks at creating spaces, within the home, that are dedicated working areas with décor solutions to motivate and focus the mind. It’s important that these spaces are created in isolation to allow us to shift between working and recreational zones so our homes can be used efficiently for multiple activities. It’s incredibly important that working spaces are kept separate and distinct for our own well-being and our Home Hub trend will help you achieve just this.   For those who have a spare room or ample garden space, the natural step might be to create a working hub by converting a room into an office or investing in a garden room or shed conversion. However, if such spaces aren’t available, adapting existing spaces is also something to consider. By sectioning off an area of your living, dining, kitchen or bedroom you could easily establish a working ‘zone’ that has its own office vibe in order to create an isolated feel. Our Pietra Lombarda tiles feature a subtle terrazzo effect which, alongside its large format, makes it a great choice for embracing the Home Hub trend. It’s 90 x 90cm size results in fewer grout lines creating an almost seamless, less busy interior space. Team Pietra Lombarda with our statement, palm print tile – Eden Hothouse – for a working hub that energises and exudes style. If you’d prefer to opt for a wall covering that’s more pared back, our Eden Pergola tile - as shown in the above mood board - is a perfect alternative for a more understated look.  For those who aren’t opposed to going bold, our Herald mosaic is yet another statement tile for capitalising on this trend. Featuring a combination of wood, stone and marble in a geometric formation, this tile has the right balance of industrial and natural textures for creating a distinctive, cool and contemporary working space Watch our video below to discover more about Home Hub and to see how you could incorporate this trend into your home.   Read more...
  6. Transforming your space with tiles

    Transforming your space with tiles Tiles have been a staple in interiors for decades for good reason, their practical properties and vast beautiful design options mean they are the perfect choice for wall and floor coverings throughout the home. However, while many naturally select tiles for their kitchen and bathroom spaces, many overlook the fact they are ideal for hallways, living areas and outdoor spaces.   Why tiles? Naturally, we’re big fans of tiles here at Original Style, but there really is a tile for every area of the home. With recent trends seeing homeowners wanting to create seamless, open plan spaces using long-lasting, practical materials, tiles are the answer to many interior design needs. They are brilliant for creating synergy throughout the home and can be used as a basis to build upon to create many styles and trends, they also provide more durability than perhaps carpet, wood, laminate or lino. While we offer a vast range of tile collections, we understand that sometimes our customers can feel a little unsure where to begin. So we thought we'd take the time to go through a number of style ideas and explain which of our tiles can be used to help create your perfect interior space.   Scandi-Style tile ideas  Scandinavian interior design has dominated home trends for the last few years and it certainly seems the trend is here to stay. This style usually starts with natural textures and neutral tones, like woods teamed with cream, beige and white shades to build a soft yet warm space. For floors, our wood-effect tiles are perfect for this; choose from muted shades of grey, cool-toned browns as well as warmer shades. If wood-effect tiles aren’t your style, take a look at our entire ‘Tileworks’ collection, there are a number of stone and concrete effect tiles in neutral tones, which can be used on both walls and floors to embrace this trend.   Statement style tile ideas Patterned tiles are also hugely popular, from feature floors to stylish splashbacks, patterned tiles are perfect for those looking to add a little extra detail and interest to a scheme. There are plenty of ways to incorporate a statement style with tiles into your space, from fabulous - yet functional - kitchen, bathroom and hallway floors to gorgeous eye-catching walls. Our ‘Odyssey’ collection is home to a series of patterned tiles and borders, inspired by places and cultural design from around the globe and throughout the ages. Think Moroccan bazaars or Turkish pottery, these tiles will transform the walls and floors in your home. For statement walls, our ‘Living’ collection features a selection of large-format, patterned tiles that are distinctively different. These include unique designs such as the French-inspired Maison, iridescent Art Deco style Radiance, and, the uber-cool Nano with urban ditsy prints. These tiles are suitable for many areas in the home - we especially love them for feature walls and, they all come with a coordinating plain tile so you can go as bold or as subtle as you like.   Contemporary style tile ideas Contemporary styles work in kitchens, bathrooms, and generally any room in the home! A modern design style can be created with tiles in many ways, in a variety of formats, textures, finishes, and colours. We’ve got plenty of options for contemporary style-tiles, from stone and wood-effect to large-format glass and metallic finishes. Large-format tiles are wonderfully versatile for a variety of settings and fewer grout lines make for a more chic, seamless finish and can help a space to appear bigger than it is.   Farmhouse style tile ideas The farmhouse, country-style trend is timeless and can be easily created with tiles. Muted hues and natural textures provide the perfect basis to build a rustic interior scheme. Natural stone tiles are great for this; choose from limestone, slate and even real marble, all of which provide an authenticity that will reward you for years to come.     Read more...
  7. Original Style's Interior Trends for 2021

    Original Style's Interior Trends for 2021 As we look forward to 2021, it’s important to consider the impact that 2020 has had on our lives and the influence upon our homes. For many of us, our priorities and lifestyles have altered dramatically and it was inevitable that such a sudden transformation of circumstances would completely change how we look at and use the spaces within our properties.   Each year, Original Style forecasts interior trends for the upcoming year working with industry and in-house experts to determine what styles, designs and colourways are likely to be popular so we can look at our tile ranges and help customers choose products to best achieve each of the predicted looks. This year is a little different. As a result of changing behaviours and everyday life, we considered it necessary to look at evolved lifestyle trends, to further understand the new priorities within the home, so we could inspire the embrace of the new normal and help customers adapt spaces to better suit their interior needs. Working alongside our in-house design experts, Jane Addis and Becca Keenan, we’ve determined three key home lifestyle trends that research suggests will be of most interest to homeowners over the coming year. So, without further ado, let’s talk trends!     Sanctuary Sanctuary is all about creating a calm, safe and tranquil space within the home to de-stress and escape from the worries and angst that life can bring. “With the global pandemic having an impact on our mental health, it’s vital that we create an isolated space, within our home, which brings serenity and allows us to take some time out to focus on our emotional wellbeing. Our environments have the ability to affect the way we think so this trend is about creating spaces that instill peace. Think soothing, neutral colourways and nature-inspired materials” – Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “Textures also play a key part in this trend. Tactile surfaces with either smooth and glossy or structured and matt finishes will help create a cosy, spa-like feel within a scheme. You also want to look at adding a touch of opulence for a slight luxurious vibe, so reflective materials such as our White Pearl Hexagon mosaics and large-format Bianco Oro marble-effect tiles are perfect for achieving this” – Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style   Staycation Due to restricted travel overseas, 2020 has been the year of the staycation and this trend is all about helping you bring relaxing, holiday vibes into your interior décor.   “The best way to embrace this trend is to think of your favourite holiday locations or coastal inspired retreats and look at the colours, textures and materials that embody these destinations and bring them into your home. Beaches and coastal locations epitomise vacations so a great way of embracing the staycation trend is to look at bringing a range of different blues into the home that personify the natural hues of the sea and sky. Team with fresh whites and subtle greys to create a seamless coastal colour palette” – Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “In addition to colour, we’d suggest exploring shimmery and glossy materials to create bright, reflective spaces that bounce light around the room. Our Pearl Scale mosaics feature iridescent qualities that not only provide a light-inducing surface but also mimic sea life inspired curves for the ultimate coastal-inspired space. Pair with soft woods and wicker textures to bring the look together” – Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style   Home Hub With many of us now working from home, the creation of remote office spaces has become a necessity and has completely changed how we use our homes on a day to day basis. “The Home Hub trend looks at working spaces and advocates décor solutions that motivates, inspires and brings a sense of calm – enabling us to work comfortably whilst creating a distinct space that’s separate to other areas of the home. Think urban jungle, bringing the outside in and cool and contemporary tiles with an industrial edge to create a working environment that has harmony and balance” - Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “When it comes to colourways, Home Hub is all about earthy tones. Incorporate various hues of greens and browns together with a range of surface textures and house plants to bring the look to life. “Our Living Eden tile range complements this trend beautifully. Featuring lush and leafy designs printed on a large-format matt base, these tiles encompass the natural, contemporary vibe of Home Hub and are perfect for embracing this trend” - Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style.

  8. Our favourite outdoor tiles

    Our favourite outdoor tiles This time of year sees many of us updating and renovating our gardens and outdoor spaces into our own little slices of paradise, especially with the warm and sunny weather we’ve been having this spring and summer!   If you’re transforming your outside space, have you considered tiles? While there are several options when it comes to flooring, such as decking and concrete, tiles are a great choice in terms of practicality and style. Not only are they hard wearing and easy to maintain, there are also a number of patterns, colours and formats available so that you can create a beautiful space you’ll love for years to come. We’ve got a varied selection of outdoor floor tiles, from natural tones and finishes to bright colours and bold patterns, here’s a closer look.   Natural and Grey Tones For those creating a garden scheme in neutral tones, take a look at our wood-effect tile options. The Lignum collection offers six subtle shades, including soft greys and warm browns, all in a slip-resistant finish. Unlike real wood or decking, these tiles are impervious to rot and rising damp and are very low maintenance as they don’t need sanding or resealing - they’re even wear resistant! It’s no surprise that grey tiles are a popular choice for homeowners, grey tones have been on-trend for some time and the trend shows no sign of slowing down either. If you’re looking for grey tiles that work with your scheme check out Kaamos, also available in Black and Ivory, these tiles are perfect for indoor and outdoor use – and even better when used in synergy.   Pretty Patterns Incorporating pattern into your outdoor space is easily done with tiles, and we have a wide selection of beautiful options, mainly in our Odyssey range. This collection is home to a range of patterned tiles and borders all of which are inspired by journeys of discovery from across the globe meaning you can create your own holiday feel in your back garden with tiles! Choose from delicate prints and soft shades to deep reds, buffs and monochrome styles.   Heritage Style If you’re creating a more heritage feel then you may already be considering Victorian Floor Tiles, which are perfect for achieving this look. Although traditionally used on front paths, porches and in hallways, Victorian floor tiles look stunning in any outside area. Their durable nature, endless styling options and colourways means there’s a Victorian Floor tile pattern for everyone’s taste.   Make a Statement  If you’re really looking to make a statement in your outdoor space then try using tiles on the walls and floors to create a Mediterranean feel. Team with a rustic table and chairs for the perfect al fresco setting!   Whichever outdoor tiles you opt for, we always recommend seeing real life samples and getting expert advice from one of our retailers, you can find your nearest retailer here Read more...
  9. Four tips for choosing the right colour tiles for your home

    Four tips for choosing the right colour tiles for your home Choosing a colour scheme for your kitchen, bathroom, or any room in your home can be a difficult decision, especially with a myriad of colours available! It’s worth doing your research to find a colour scheme that you feel comfortable with (and can live with!) as well as one suited to the style of your home. We’ve put together four tips to help make the process less daunting and help you select the best tiles for your space…   1. Research Tiles are often an afterthought when it comes to home makeovers, but they have the power to completely transform a room. After researching online, visiting your local dealer is a good place to start; here you can browse inspiring displays and get advice from friendly and knowledgeable staff, but most importantly get samples to test in your own home. When selecting a colour there are three basic schemes to choose from, tonal, harmonious and complementary. A tonal scheme is the use of one colour but in varying hues, for some this may be too plain but adding in texture is a great way to alleviate the potential blandness of a single colour. For example if you have opted for white neutral cabinets and décor, a white textured tile like Fusuma adds immediate detail and interest. A harmonious scheme is balanced and easy on the eye, using colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel, for example pink and green. This type of colour scheme is great if you are looking for something more striking.   2. Style of property Considering the style of your home is also important when selecting colour. If you have a modern new build it may not suit traditional dark red and buff Victorian Floor Tiles, but if you love the look, a neutral colourway like grey and white as pictured below, is better suited to a new build. Likewise with period properties, applying brightly coloured jewel toned mosaics to the bathroom could look out of place, but if you want to embrace a daring colour you can still do so with the Artworks collection, try a bold Baroque Blue for depth and atmosphere.   3. Considering your space The size of your room can also guide your colour choice, if you are updating a smaller room and want to make the most of the space, it’s common sense to opt for lighter shades. This needn’t mean white, grey or beige, using pastel shades is a nod to introducing some colour without the commitment of a bold shade. Just look at the Winchester Tile Company for plenty of pastel hues, perfect for adding a drop of colour to your interior. It’s also important to see how tiles look in different lights, so we recommend getting samples from your local dealer and looking at them in your space at different times of the day to see how they are affected by light.   4. Finishing Touches It can be tempting to match all your accessories to your colour scheme, but this can look overwhelming, if you already have a statement colour in your kitchen or bathroom try using a complementary shade for items like towels and décor. For the ultimate finishing touch, border tiles can really add that coveted wow factor; use them to frame, highlight and finish an area to perfection, or even to add a pop of colour Read more...
  10. The versatility of Tileworks – our collection of large format contemporary tiles

    The versatility of Tileworks – our collection of large format contemporary tiles Large-format tiles have grown in popularity over the last decade and the trend shows no sign of slowing down either. Our range of large format contemporary tiles is named the Tileworks collection and it is home to a wide selection of concrete, stone, and metal effect tiles in an abundance of neutral tones and finishes. It’s these natural hues and effects that make our Tileworks collection so versatile, along with their large format attributes helping to create seamless style, due to less frequent grout gaps. With so many options, we thought it would be helpful to showcase how this collection can be used throughout all the areas of the home.   Lounge With more and more of us opting for open plan living, lounges with tiles are becoming more popular, due to their functionality and sleek look. You might think that tiles feel cold underfoot but with underfloor heating and an array of textures and finishes available, you needn’t worry. You can also add warmth with soft furnishings and deep rich colours. Pictured below are Portland Stone floor tiles with Midnight Blue large format wall tiles, both from the Tileworks collection.   Hallway Tiles are a brilliant choice for hallway floors, their durability means they can cope with the footfall of everyday life whilst still looking stylish and beautiful. Opting for large format tiles means you can also seamlessly blend into rooms like the kitchen or lounge for an uninterrupted, modern finish. For hallways we love the terrazzo style of our Pietra Lombarda tiles, they are perfect for creating a serene yet functional space.   Kitchen and Utility Kitchens need to be practical spaces and so tiles are a natural choice for walls and floors. Not only are tiles easy to clean and maintain, but they can also help you to create a number of styles. Large-format tiles are great for achieving modern looks, especially when teamed with handle-less cabinetry and chrome fixtures and fittings. They are also great for adding character, take our Marble Carrara tiles, styled here with wood-effect floor tiles to create a scandi-style kitchen. There are plenty of options for utility rooms too, we love the simplicity of our Peggy Grigio tiles, teamed with simple white cabinets for a soft and fresh look.   Bathroom You can transform your bathroom into a calming oasis by choosing the right tiles and Large-format tiles are perfect for this. Opting for a larger sized tile will give you fewer grout gaps and help to create a continuous, smooth finish. To create a relaxing, spa-style bathroom try our Amelia tiles, their detailed veining creates an element of texture to help add depth and warmth to a space.   Outdoors The Tileworks range is so versatile, there are even tile options that can be installed outside. Our Kaamos tiles have an elegant and refined stone look with versatile and practical properties. Use Kaamos both inside and out, with both 10mm and 20mm options; it’s extremely hard wearing and can even be laid onto to sand, pebbles and directly onto grass. The full colour-bodied construction disguises any wear and tear that may occur on tiles used outside.   So, whichever room in your home you’re working on, there’s something in the Tileworks collection that’s perfect for your project.  Read more...
