One of the most prestigious design houses in the UK, Laura Ashley products have been adding a touch of luxury into UK households since 1953. The company is known for its trademark floral patterns, across clothing, soft furnishings, wallpaper and tiles.
If you’re looking to create a feature wall, or focal point, in a bathroom or kitchen (an area of wall with a decorative pattern or striking colour that catches the eye of your guests as they step into the room), then choose from Laura Ashley’s floral tiles. The Isadore tiles collection is one of the most desirable tile ranges in the UK today. It consists of a scrolling vine pattern writhing its way up a contrasting background. There’s white on black and also black and white. For best results, use the two together to create a feature. Alternatively, for different floral tiles from Laura Ashley, try the Cottonwood and Wintergarden ranges; these designs are equally as charming.
Reasons to Buy Laura Ashley Tiles
A home design trend that has been growing in popularity recently is the idea of creating a country farmhouse look. This warm, rustic, rural approach to decorating a kitchen or bathroom is a big hit with the interior styling magazines, and it’s easy to recreate in your home. On the floors, use some rich wood effect tiles, or textured slate effect tiles. And on the wall, create a splashback, or feature wall, using rustic brick tiles, such as the Artisan range from Laura Ashley. These tiles have a rugged edge, with a bumpy, aged, characterful surface; typical of a charming turn-of-the-century country cottage. For best results, choose a few different colours from the range, and create a mixed palette when tiling your wall space – it will add interest.
If your interior spaces are starting to look a little drab and they’re overdue a makeover, then you might like to think about introducing the natural look, which is another popular interior design trend right now, alongside the country farmhouse look. The concept of ‘bringing the outdoors in’ ties back to the theory that, by filling your home with natural surfaces and textures, you’ll create a calming and soothing ambience in which you can relax and unwind at the end of a long and stressful day. Stone effect tiles are perfect for achieving this look in your home. Whilst natural stone tiles are preferable for a luxurious finish, they are often fairly expensive, and they require ongoing treatment and maintenance. Stone effect tiles, however, since they are made from ceramic, can be left alone once installed, and will look as ravishing as the day they are fitted. Browse the Laura Ashley tile collection for some superb stone effect designs, including the Malvern range.
