Over on our Instagram account, we're constantly tagged in projects featuring our Scintilla tiles as a standout feature for a fireplace! So, we've created a dream living room setting in a style we know our customers love.

We've collaborated with Furniture And Choice and Stovax Gazco to bring you two stunning living room settings that are full of homely vibes: Cottagecore, or Clean Living?

Swipe through to read about the tiles, the foundational furniture, and the accessories, before seeing the finished room set!

Trend origins

Cottagecore is a unique trend that draws upon eco-friendly elements that reflect our personal need for beauty and sustainability. We've created a set full of earthly inspired materials in hardwearing formats perfect for durable design that will last for years.

We've replicated the stunning tactility of the set following a Clean Living colour scheme with minimalist artwork and grey-toned furnishings. If monochrome is more your style, this is the style you're looking for!

Tiles as foundational design elements

Core to any room are the foundations for furnishing, and this gorgeous room set features not one, not two, but three stylish tiles!

Our bestselling Royal Oak Wood Effect tiles are the perfect choice for creating a room full of natural character whilst retaining durability. They have a Porcelain body that is alive with realistic knots and grains. Paired with our bestselling Scintilla Black Star Pattern tiles, the contrast between these vintage-style statements is a striking feature to the foundations of this living room!

As the wall feature, this stunning hearth design features our Detroit Terracotta tiles; the perfect choice for contemporary design!  They feature an elegant flat brick shape with a unique shadow or "smokey" effect throughout its surface giving an overall tonal gradient finish. Laid in a Herringbone pattern, they add a unique statement to a wall space for design that stays on-trend whilst serving as a protective layer against the heat of the fire.

In the 'Clean Living' set, the wooden floor has been swapped for a grey, soft touch version - perfect for a modern twist. They're our Blengdale Gris Wood Effect tiles ! Paired with tonal variants of grey, they really bring the room together for a cosy vibe that doesn't compromise on practicality. Our Detroit tiles remain a focus, yet they are in the shade Carbon, a dark grey/black that really emphasises Detroit's smokey variation.

Foundational pieces

Furniture is an essential in any room and it begins to set the tone of your interior design. We've paired both room set with a large armchair for a central design element that is homely and inviting. Furniture And Choice kindly gifted us their Harlow Slate Grey Plush Fabric Armchair: 'with a hardwood frame, supportive cushions, and a modern grey colour, it's a solid and versatile choice for the contemporary home.'

Plus, the hardwood is sustainably sourced so perfect for our Cottagecore inspiration!

At the heart of this living room sits a stunning stove, supplied by Stovax Gazco. It holds all the charm and character of a log burning fire, yet it is super easy to install and maintain as it is a modern electric variant! Perfect for terraced homes or new builds where having a chimney or outlet isn't possible. This Vogue Midi Electric Stove really is the best of both worlds.
