One tile styled three ways

Let us introduce you to our favourite tiles at the moment - The ’Rice’ Series from @tile_trends_tweed. In appearance Rice has a glossy finish and intentionally irregular surfaces evoking the sensation of handmade products. We love the versatility of these tiles and the fact that they come in 3 different sizes - 150x150mm, 50x150mm and 75x200m which is also available in a gorgeous pleat design and available in 4 stunning shades. Today we are going to show off the Natural colour-way in the 50x150mm size and give you an example of ways you can lay these tiles to suit 3 different Interior styles. 1. Style Inspiration: Country Chic⁠Choice of tile pattern lay: Horizontal offset brick bond with a vertical (soldier) stack bond row. This change of feature can be positioned along the top or bottom of the wall where the tiling stops at approximately 1200-1400mm high. To help optimise the Country inspired look and feel we are trying to achieve here, we have decided to incorporate VJ routed panelling for the walls above where the tiling will stop. This will help add definition and texture to the walls while also adding a sense of warmth to a space that can sometimes feel quite cold. Bronze tap ware and hardware will add a touch of opulence, this same finish can be brought into the feature wall sconces for cohesiveness. Deep vein marble stone will add a luxurious feel to custom timber vanities. And why not use this style as an excuse to spend the day at thrift shops, bagging yourself some vintage pieces to add those all important finishing touches to the space.  Key words to live by for a Country Chic inspired look: Vintage, opulent, layered 2. Style Inspiration: Organic Coastal⁠ Choice of tile pattern lay: Here we have used a vertical stack bond lay with the Rice series tiles. This pattern lay can help elongate a space with the straight vertical lines that are defined by off white grout. Accentuating the height of a space is exactly the feel you want to be enhanced in a Coastal inspired home, helping create the space to look and feel light, airy and open.  Organic-formed materials are used for the light fixtures and basin, and it is important to keep in mind that imperfections are perfect in this scenario. We have selected the crown jewel of natural stone 'Taj Mahal' by CDK Stone, a creamy white quartzite with the appearance of sandstone. While Rumbled Brass Organic from Brodware is the perfect colour finish for the tap ware, and we have selected this in their Halo range - aesthetically stunning with its clean dials and minimal form.To play off the warm shades bursting in this design, we have opted to use a light oak cabinetry and the Chicama Thin Wave Handle from Touch Handles, a show stopping feature and a design to reflect the water movements in our ocean.  Key words to live by for a Organic Coastal inspired look: Raw, openness, texture 3. Style Inspiration: Traditional Hamptons⁠Choice of tile pattern lay: In this final flat lay creation the classic herringbone is chosen as the tile lay pattern and we have paired these with a warm white grout which will really help enhance this tile pattern and make it pop! ⁠ Chrome tap ware is the optimal 'jewellery' choice here, especially in a Hamptons inspired design, as it is a metal finish that boasts the look of shiny and mirrored objects that you tend to always see within homes in the Hamptons region. We selected the 'Manhattan' range of tap ware from Brodware, as it is a clean and modern interpretation of a classical design. Shaker profile cabinetry is selected to offer both interest and a timeless style, while Calacutta Quartz engineered stone from WK Stone dresses the vanity to evoke that all classic Hamptons appeal.  Key words to live by for a Hamptons inspired look: Timeless, light, bright, sophisticated  Whether you're looking to make some minor adjustments, or whether you're starting a major new build and renovation, beginning with the first step of defining your ideal/preferred 'design style' will help give you a much needed head start when it comes to making your selections. Understanding the style/s that you like and want to incorporate help ensure that your space will look cohesive and well thought through. Still not sure what direction to head in?
