Welcoming a new year symbolises a fresh start, and what better way to begin than by reviving our living spaces? The holidays leave a flurry of activity in their wake, making January the perfect time to infuse a sense of calm into our homes. With their varied hues, patterns, and textures, tiles play a crucial role in this transformation.

Post-Christmas calm

The role of interior design in shaping our mental well-being and influencing our mental health is significant, with the capacity to transform a chaotic environment into a sanctuary of calm.
Following the Christmas festivities, as we transition from the holiday's lively spirit, our homes become spaces for reflection and planning for the year ahead. This juncture presents an ideal opportunity to adopt a design ethos centred on relaxation and serenity. A meticulously planned interior, paying close attention to elements such as colour, layout and texture, can influence how we feel. Tiles play a pivotal role in this transformation. They are not simply utilitarian surfaces but artistic mediums that bring character and mood to any space. 

Calming colours: blues, greens and neutrals

Colour psychology plays a pivotal role in interior design. Different hues have the power to shape perceptions, evoke feelings and even alter psychological responses. Understanding colour psychology allows designers to craft spaces that not only appeal visually but also resonate emotionally, creating environments that align with the intended mood and purpose of each room. This knowledge is crucial in making design choices that positively affect the inhabitants' well-being and daily experiences.

Blue, embodying the sky and ocean, evokes a deep sense of tranquillity and stability, essential for creating a restful space. Green, with its echoes of the natural world, has the power to enliven any interior, bringing in a fresh, invigorating energy. Neutral shades, such as greys and beiges, offer a calming canvas, fostering a soothing and relaxed atmosphere.

Natural calm

Nature's inherent tranquillity is an endless source of inspiration in interior design. By incorporating aspects of the natural world, such as textures and colours that mimic the outdoors, designers can foster a sense of calm and balance in the home. Nature's inherent tranquillity serves as a profound inspiration in the realm of interior design. Our curated collection of natural stone tiles effectively bridges the gap between the outdoors and your indoor space, nurturing a deep connection with the environment. The Brera Gold tiles, for example, embody the luxury of Calacatta Marble with the practicality of porcelain, infusing spaces with a timeless elegance. Their random gold veins offer a unique aesthetic, marrying well with both classic and contemporary decors. Similarly, the Babele Lino Tile, with its sleek porcelain design and versatile laying patterns introduces a modern yet organic feel. Tiles designed with natural wood effectively bring a subtle touch of nature into your home, combining simplicity and style.

Tile texture and light’s influence

Tile texture and lighting significantly influence the ambience and functionality of a space. Textures can dictate light reflection, grip and even acoustic properties, thus playing a crucial role in determining the room's overall feel and aesthetic.

Polished tiles, such as the Iceland Onyx Navy Tile, are known for their high-gloss finish that reflects light. Soft, diffused lighting creates a welcoming atmosphere when paired with reflective polished tiles. These qualities make them ideal for spaces where a bright, open feel is desired. They add a sense of luxury and spaciousness, making rooms appear larger and more illuminated. However, these tiles can be slippery when wet and may require more frequent cleaning to maintain their shine.

Matte tiles, like the Carrara Matt Tile offer a more subdued look. Their non-reflective surface absorbs light, providing depth and warmth for a softer, more natural appearance. Matte tiles are less prone to showing water marks and smudges, making them a practical choice for high-traffic areas or spaces like kitchens and bathrooms.

The interplay between light and tile texture is vital in sculpting the room's character, fostering an environment conducive to calm and restoration. Thoughtful pairing of lighting and tiles is essential in designing spaces that are both visually pleasing and emotionally comforting.

The tiles were a great price compared to other online retailers selling the same tiles. However, £30 for a DHL delivery seemed a bit expensive for a small order (approx 220 15x10cm tiles for a splashback).
