The approach of winter means one thing, getting cosy, probably everyone's favourite thing about the colder months (other than Christmas obviously!) It's the perfect opportunity to reinvent your home by adding texture and warmth to get you through those dark evenings. Aside from the Scandinavians, Scotland has the winter months figured out; thick cosy (faux) furs, big log fires and a lot of carbs, they know how to survive colder climes. So it's the Scottish Highlands that we look to at this time of year to help inspire and warm up our homes to create that cosy feeling.
Tartan is a classic Scottish staple, this Fabrix decor tile brings that texture alive giving a room warmth and depth without compromising on durability and easy maintenance. This porcelain tile replicates the intricate weave of fabric achieving the look of a short pile carpet. Mix the decor tile with its plain counterpart in a warm taupe shade and add a few cosy accessories like plush cushions and throws to create the ideal little snug.
Representing the colours of autumn, Piscola is a brown toned slate tile with a masculine vibe, perfect for creating a snug hideaway with aged leather chairs and a neutral colour palette. Slate, once laid, is a durable and versatile material and works perfectly around a log burner, all it needs is sealing each year to keep it in top condition.
Showcasing beautiful illustrations of wild animals most famously associated with Scotland, Croxton Woods lends itself to a country aesthetic. With its rustic edges and handmade finish this glossy tile makes the perfect splashback behind a range cooker and emphasises the heart of the home. Mix the illustrations with the plain silk tile and create your own design with drawings of a Stag, Owl, Rabbit and Robin.
Known for their log throwing competitions, the Scottish Highlands have beautiful expanses of forest with age-old trees. Replicate this look in your home with Slumber, this variegated porcelain wood effect tile works well on the wall and the floor and will bring warm toned colour to your living space. For a traditional look, pair Slumber with a brick tile like Hartley or go contemporary with a Scandi style finish with a neutral colour palette and lots of cosy accessories.
