Here at Walls and Floors, we’ve just launched our 4 interior trends for 2018! This is an introduction to trend number one, Craftsman’s Journal, where we’ll tell you a bit about the trend, and how to achieve it in your home.


An explanation of Craftsman’s Journal

Our exclusive designer Louisa Charlotte explains the trend: ‘Animated by discovery, Craftsman’s Journal will provide an escape to a self made sanctuary. Modernised shapes are combined with crafted layering, raw edges and intricate patterns for a soulful spin, whilst burnished hues and rustic undertones implement warmth and enchantment; Take your home on a new adventure.’

In other words, it’s all about creating a warm and rustic look in your home – think ‘cosy woodland cabin’.


5 examples of Craftsman’s Journal in action



Here, our dark Isoline Tiles create a cosy kitchen splashback! Combine with the wood effect flooring and the roaring fore, and you’ve got yourself a Craftsman’s Journal cooking space. Top tip: When tiling a wall with brick tiles, why not try mixing matt and gloss finishes in the same colour?



For a lighter look, like in this bathroom, try combining Cornsilk Beige Linear Decor Tiles with wood effect Ornamental Bonsai Tiles. To break aware from a standard linear floor, try the herringbone pattern.



If you’re a lover of truly natural products, and you’ve not tempted by our convincing library of stone effect tiles, try these natural Country Farmhouse Multicolour Slate Tiles. Combine with some ornate cabinetry for your own country-themed rustic scheme. This pup approves!



Exposed wooden beams, Vintage Wood Plank Tiles on the floor, and a rustic stone wall come together perfectly to create the Craftsman’s Journal look in this lounge – not to mention that gorgeous fire!
