When I hosted last month’s Tile & Style workshop with The Block’s Kyal and Kara, one of the things I discovered was just how many things you can do with tiles.
Not that it should really come as a surprise, of course, but feature tiles really can transform a space like no other material can. I filmed a recent video on feature tiles if you’d like to check it out here, but this post it not all about me – it’s about these amazing new tiles from stylist Tim Neve.
Mermania is the name of Tim’s brand new release, which marks the debut of his foray into tiles.
In shades of aquatic blues (my fave palette), these handmade tiles are completely unique and no two are the same. Made of pressed cement, the encaustic tiles feature a chalky, matte finish and have small imperfections here and there to add to their individual charm.
“The coastal-inspired scallop motif is perfect to create a statement in a bathroom,” Tim says, “or imagine a kitchen splashback!”.
These would, indeed, be one of the boldest statements you could make in your kitchen. I see them working better in a bathroom, but either way they are going to bring a Moroccan-inspired mood to your abode.
The tiles can be laid on the floor or wall, making them a versatile style statement.
