When decorating the living room, it’s easy to overlook the possibility of tiling. We’re so used to hanging wallpaper and laying carpet that we just don’t consider it. But the fact of the matter is, all the 2013 trend-setters are inviting tiles into their lounges and living areas. Here are a few likely house guests:
1) Oak Tile
Part of the Rustic Wood Tiles range, this stunningly realistic oak-effect tile featured in a recent edition of Channel 4′s Grand Designs Magazine; and it’s been taking the UK by storm ever since. It looks incredibly authentic; with ridges sunken into the surface of the tile, and raised knots. As you can see in the image, this tile looks very at home in the living area.
2) Orleans Tiles
Brand new for 2013, these eye-catching Orleans Tiles will transform dull living room walls into artistic centrepieces. Made by celebrated designer Louisa Charlotte, the stunning floral displays will capture the imagination of your guests.
