Dec­o­ra­tive and hard­wear­ing, glossy ex­te­rior tiling is a his­toric look that’s gain­ing new fans. The façade of this north Lon­don home, cre­ated by de­signer Emma Louise Payne in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Si­mon Astridge Stu­dio, was in­spired by the glazed tiles adorn­ing the nearby Tufnell Park tube sta­tion, dat­ing back to 1907. The long, rec­tan­gu­lar shape of Payne’s tiles may be fa­mil­iar, but her use of colour is what im­presses. She pro­duced 17 glazes in dif­fer­ent shades of green that mimic light fall­ing through the trees. Each tile is fired to a high tem­per­a­ture to make it ro­bust and frost-proof, be­fore be­ing hand­cut and glazed in Payne’s Ox­ford­shire stu­dio. From £600 per square me­tre (em­malouise payne.com; si­monastridge.com).
