Nail­ing your look

Home Beautiful - - DESIGN FILE -

With so many tiles avail­able in all shapes, sizes, styles and tex­tures, pin­ning down a favourite can be tricky. The look of the rest of your home can be a use­ful guide – brick-laid sub­ways in misty grey, blue and white have a Hamp­tons vibe, for ex­am­ple – but don’t feel book­marked. Blur­ring the lines be­tween styles helps you stay faith­ful to your own taste. Cre­at­ing a mood board of im­ages gath­ered from mag­a­zines and web­sites will as­sist with nar­row­ing down your pref­er­ences, and handy helpers, such as the Beau­mont Tiles ‘What’s My Style’ on­line quiz, can pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion and even tai­lored mood boards for your pet project. “It’s just like hav­ing a stylist to help you dis­cover your cur­rent style, no mat­ter what your bud­get or your pur­pose for ren­o­va­tion,” says Rachel Gild­ing, strate­gic de­signer at Beau­mont Tiles.

“Us­ing colour can be daunt­ing to many ren­o­va­tors, but when done well can be re­ward­ing and cre­ate vis­ually stun­ning en­vi­ron­ments” ~ Rachel Gild­ing, Beau­mont Tiles
