It’s all about tiles as we head into the autumn, and opting for natural neutrals offers a timeless trend…
Simple and classic, the timeless appeal of the natural neutrals trend offers up a contemporary style that oozes sophistication.
Ideal for those who want a look that’s clutter free and an environment that creates a feeling of calm to aid wellbeing, this appearance is all about laidback style that still has interest. Here, Sian O’Neill, head of marketing at Topps Tiles, explains how you can create this trend in your home.
Bring the Outdoors In
“Cool shades of off grey, charcoal and white are the perfect colours to complement natural and earthy tones. Pair these hues with light oak wooden furniture and accessories, alongside gentle pops of greenery to weave in a natural or botanical element.
“Our Pellier sand tiles are perfect for this trend as they have a minimal look, ideal for a rural kitchen feel. Each tile features a unique variation in grain, earning an authentic, rustic quality.
“With its warm, neutral colour palette, the Pellier tile offers a French limestone effect but without the cost and maintenance associated with the real thing.
“These tiles are also appropriate for outdoor use, so you can use then in your lounge or kitchen through to your patio for a seamless look that will extend the natural elements of the outdoors and infuse your indoor living space with a fresh country theme.”
Add Structural Style to Your Home
“Packed with warmth, the Ayton Sand colour palette offers a subtle tone that suits a modern home. These ceramic, textured tiles provide a linear structure for a stylish look that’s ideal for homeowners who are after a more clean and uniformed design.
“Infuse some natural zest to this look by adding in some different shades. Subtle pops of pastel colours, such as duck egg green or rose pink, can be incorporated through the use of your accessories and soft furnishings for a harmonious interior.”
All Shapes and Sizes
“For those who would like to get creative with their interiors, Hemsworth modular tile allows homeowners to create a unique style thanks to the varying shapes and sizes it comes in. With neutral, beige tones this tile looks great when set against a backdrop of cool blue and crisp, fresh white. Add in some weathered brass or gold finishes for a luxe twist that’s eye catching whilst not being overpowering.
“And, as our Hemsworth modular tile mimics the natural beauty of limestone, it features the replicated patterns and markings of the real thing for a truly authentic look.”
But if you are really missing that pop of colour…
We could all do with a bit of sunshine in our homes. But if the thought of bright yellow is a little overwhelming, then try introducing dark hues to create a stylish colour clash that results in a bold design statement.
Vivid yellows pop spectacularly against dramatic darks, so if it’s yellow walls you’re after, look for contemporary black furniture to really set the colour off. Try using colour in small doses on accent walls such as behind a fireplace to brighten up any room.
