  1. Paradis Mere is our Tile for the Year for 2023!

    Paradis Mere is our Tile for the Year for 2023! Bold botanical palm leaves, gorgeous green tones and our signature glossy tile glaze – Paradis Mere is our Tile of the Year for 2023! We have been nominating a Tile of the Year for the last six years, choosing exclusive tiles like Paradis Mere that are truly unique and set to influence upcoming trends.Small in format but bold in design, Paradis Mere has four faces. Each face showcases more of the pattern, offering a varied abundance of tropical leaves. Inspired by gorgeous botanical gardens and the summer palms found in Devon’s local areas of outstanding beauty, Paradis Mere was a natural choice for our Tile of the Year 2023.Paradis Mere has been designed and developed in our Design Studio in Devon and is manufactured in Exeter by our skilled and passionate production team. Using some of the most authentic manufacturing processes and glaze recipes, this tile is truly unique. Each tile is hand-crafted by skilled artisans using the longstanding screen printing method which, together with its reactive inks, means each kiln produces a different effect, so no two tiles are the same.‘We really love the unpredictable, rustic nature of reactive print. Botanical motifs are here to stay for the foreseeable - palms especially. After spending time visiting local botanical gardens, we saw this project as the perfect opportunity to combine them both together to create Botanique Paradis! Designed, developed, and produced in our Devon factory, Botanique really embodies the skilled craftsmanship and passion that we have for creating new products at Original Style.’ Becca Keenan New Products Designer. Botanique Paradis Mere is a versatile product, create a range of different looks with this tile – whatever your style! For a rustic kitchen look, mix up the faces, using ‘Mere’ or the coordinating plain tile 'Cotton' from our Winchester collection, to break the pattern up and add a pop of colour.For something more edgy, try using Paradis inside a shower enclosure without any coordinating plain tiles mixed in. You could use ‘Mere’ to tile the rest of the room, or maybe even just choose some areas to create a zoned effect. For a subtle look, team with our new ‘Cotton’ field tiles, their soft white glaze coordinates perfectly with Paradis Mere.Paradis Mere is a brand new tile and its versatile design can be styled to create a range of different looks - contemporary or traditional. But, however you choose to style Paradis Mere, this tile will no doubt bring a unique, botanical touch to your interior décor and we hope it brings as much joy to you as creating it has to us!

  3. Our top ideas for using metallic tiles

    Our top ideas for using metallic tiles If you’re looking to add some drama and warmth to your space, here are a few ways to incorporate metallic tiles into your home.   Unique Splashbacks There’s no denying that Copper has been the material of the moment in interiors as it looks great in a huge variety of settings. Brass and chrome are also still hugely popular but it is copper hues that are making the biggest impact in kitchen designs. If you’re looking a touch of copper, we recommend opting for a splashback using our Copper Leaf tile from the Glassworks collection.   Full glamour For those who want to really embrace the metallic trend look no further than a full wall of metallic effect tiles for a real wow factor. Metallic Steel (made from Porcelain) from the Tileworks collection is perfect for this and is and is suitable for wet walls making it ideal for bathrooms. We have plenty of metallic mosaics on offer from copper linear style to hexagons, browse the collection here. For those looking for maximum impact try Fusion Micro as pictured below.   Detail therapy If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and love the metallic trend but you’re not sure how to incorporate it into your interior, try experimenting with some accessories before taking the plunge. Adding a few accent pieces is also a great way to change a kitchen or bathroom, try adding a panel of metallic mosaics to liven up your space and add a little bit of interest.   Mixing Materials This is another popular trend that when done correctly looks striking, take a look at these Platinum half tiles teamed with a marble work top and teal green paint, a winning combination! Experimenting with textures and materials is a great way to create a unique style in your home.   Keep it classic There are many interior design styles that lend themselves to the current trend of metallic, such as Art Deco. Art Deco tiles tend to feature accents in gold and silver, as these hues are reminiscent of the opulence of the era. Stylised Art Deco tiles in trademark geometric shapes could be a great way of introducing gold and silver if you don’t want to cover large areas. Try incorporating decorative Art Deco border tiles with metallic flashes for an easy to live with look that is sure to impress Read more...
