91 is pinning… tiles

Save & share

We are pretty sure we aren’t the only ones with a fetish for beautiful tiles. Just check out the Instagram hashtag #ihavethisthingwithtiles and you will instantly feel at one with your tribe of tile obsessives. Walls, floors, indoors, outdoors – we don’t mind – if they have pretty patterns and/or pretty colours, we’ll snap them, pin them and quite possibly hunt them down for our own downstairs loo. In fact, it was the tiles I lusted over at Paper Mill Studios (an amazing space featured in our new issue) that I then went on to install in my own ground floor lavatory!

Tiles can vary massively in cost, but you can easily create a feature with some spectacular tiles by covering just a small area – a splash-back, a fireplace, or like me – a small bathroom. (you can see mine here

There are many great tile brands out there that we love. For something a little bit special check out Bert and May, Marrakech Design, Baked Tile Co, Fired Earth and Milagros. If you’ve got larger areas to cover, then budget friendly websites like Topp Tiles, Tile Mountain and Tons of Tiles are a great places to get straight forward designs like metro tiles. Although, many of these brands are creating interesting options like the above from Topp Tiles – there are different laying options to create various patterns and we love how the coordinating grout makes it look almost like embossed wallpaper.
