Preparing your house for the holidays can often seem like a daunting task, especially when your home interior may be feeling a bit tired or dated. However, there are many quick ways to get your home ready for entertaining, whether it’s through updating your walls and floors with fresh tiles or replacing the finer details with some new accessories. When you stop to look around, you’ll notice that there are endless ways to transform your interior with a renewed feel - just in time for those all-important special occasions.
The winter months really are for celebrating with family and friends, so there’s no better time to get your home ready. Each room has its own function and purpose so why not use them to their full potential? Starting with the kitchen; now you might not need a major renovation here, but it’s always nice to give it a different look for the festive period. If you are looking to go big with a look that will last through all of the seasons, then why not add a bit of blue? We love the way our Poitiers
Azure Blue tiles look against white marble surfaces - the statement colour adds a contrasting feel whilst working effortlessly as a striking feature wall, especially when paired with seasonal finishes over the festive months.
If you aren't looking to go all out on a renovation then why not give your brassware a simple update? Incorporating a brushed brass or matt black finish can really make a difference to kitchen interiors and add that hint of colour you’ve been longing for. Add hints of holly and some festive décor for a refreshing scheme that will be sure to wow your guests over the festive period.
With the New Year fast approaching, it’s the ideal time to get rid of any unnecessary items and introduce new trends into the home. If you're hoping to redecorate your dining area with a new look, this can be easily achieved by adding in accessories. However, for those wanting to make more of a real statement, we recommend sprucing up your walls with a refreshing new look. Our Nature
Bone Concept tile makes for an eye-catching option for this style interior, as the textured surface adds depth to a scheme and pairs beautifully with hints of ivy, modern accessories and a neutral colour palette.
A statement floor also injects lots of personality into a room and draws the eye, allowing the furniture and accessories to remain unchanged. We've noticed that patterned tiles have made a huge comeback and are perfect for incorporating interest and colour to interiors. Our Cuban
tiles make a great choice for beautiful flooring in the home.
Although the summer months feel far away, there’s nothing wrong with forward planning and creating an interior scheme perfect for summer entertaining. You don't necessarily have to go to extreme lengths - designing a space that is simply relaxing, comfortable and well shaded will be certain to please guests.
An inviting interior can be achieved by simply adding in soft furnishings and punchy pops of colour. Start by bringing the outside in and create a smooth transition from spring to summer. Add in sprigs of greenery and wicker furniture pieces that will add a natural-toned aesthetic. Or go large and refresh your surfaces with neutral tiles that will make areas appear spacious and more open. Our Knole
cream tiles work beautifully when paired with wooden flooring and Scandinavian influences - the textural appeal creates a warm and welcoming appeal, providing you with a stunning dining room setting for entertaining over the warmer months.
