While autumnal trends favour muted and warming tones of burnt oranges and reddish browns, winter welcomes a crisper palette. Mirror the outdoors and blend icy tones with vibrant blues and greens which will carry your interior through the colder months into a fresh and inviting spring.
A Wintry Coastline
We all know the rich orange and red tones of autumn are some of the most beautiful nature has to offer in the calendar year, however there are plenty of other nature-inspired colour palettes available to influence your interior.
Coastal influences are often commandeered for the summer months however the murky, mysterious depths of the ocean can be a source of inspiration all year round. Soft hues of blue and green can work together to create a harmonious and calming space. Our award winning Attingham™ range picked up silver at this year's House Beautiful Awards, its delicate colour palette being a firm favourite with the judges. The seagrass geometric tile's surface has a glossy finish with a textured design making it an easy option for a focal point in any room.
Continuing in the coastal theme, our Minton Hollins Roker tile is an updated version of an original design recently uncovered in the Roker Pier lighthouse in Sunderland whilst under renovation. The intricate decor tile recreates the almost fussy Victorian aesthetic, a popular look during the Arts & Crafts period. Hone in on a more traditional look but tiling en masse and pairing with dark woods, you can lift the look with delicate glass and metallic accessories.
If you really want to make a colourful statement there's no better than the Diamante range, this bold teal shade works well in either a bathroom or kitchen. Inspired by the original decor of the underground in Victorian London, these durable ceramic tiles create the perfect brick effect. Keep the look clean and modern by using a coloured grout to help define each tile and hide any stains or grime that can build up over time.
The etymology of the term Celadon, a type of ceramic known for its glaze and colour, appears to have come from the French pastoral romance, L'Astree written in 1627. The Astrea™ range takes inspiration from this famous ceramic trend with the delicate crackle-effect and subtle gloss finish. The bluey-teal really pops when paired with colourful accessories, the perfect way to brighten up a cold winter day.
