Loving Lately: Patterned Tiles

One trend that we don’t see dying down any time soon (at least we hope not!) is the use of patterned tiles. They can be used in so many different spaces, and can always be counted on to provide a ‘wow’ factor in any room they’re in. There are many different styles of patterned tiles available, from traditional Moroccan patterns, to more contemporary designs. If you’re looking for a bold statement, or have a space that’s in need of a little something extra, patterned tiles are definitely the way to go! We’ve rounded up a list of our favorites along with some examples of the tiles in use. Take a look!

Our fave patterned tiles:

Tile Sources: First 2 Rows- Clé Tile ; Row 3- Cement Tile Shop ; Row 4- Fireclay Tile ; Row 5- Popham Design

You can see by this list the wide range of styles & colors available- go neutral with a simple pattern, or add a bold pop of color to your space with these beauties!

We’re loving the uses of patterned tiles in these bathrooms!

Kitchens are another common place you’ll find patterned tiles. They’re perfect for a bold backsplash:

And we LOVE the unexpected use of tile on the back of an island or bar:

Just a little pop of pattern goes a long way!

These tiles are also great for entryways, mudrooms, laundry rooms…the list goes on and on.

Summer ’17 Inspo

Although we’ve already had our taste of NC summer weather this year, the first official day of summer is in just a few days! We’re really feeling fun patterns & bright colors for the season, and we’re big on light, crisp interiors and outfits. Take a look at some of what’s inspiring us this summer!

  1. Obsessed with these clutches from Ann Howell Bullard– they have such fun prints that make for the perfect summer accessory!
  2. Loving this crisp bedroom- the use of muted greens, whites, deep yellows and natural materials perfectly invokes the season.
  3. The pattern/ color combos on these cement tiles from Cle Tile are simply amazing & give off major summer vibes.
  4. The perfect summer outfit from Rebecca Minkoff: a ruffled blouse and a button up skirt. Light, comfy & chic! 
  5. How cute are these abstract planters from BTW Ceramics?! Perfect for adding a little green around the house. We’ll take 5 please. 
  6. We’re hoping to get lots of lounging outdoors + pool time this summer & wishing it could be in this beautiful space!

What’s on your mood board for the summer? Let us know in the comments!

Outdoor Spaces We’re Loving
Comments Off on Outdoor Spaces We’re Loving

The weather has been so nice here lately and it’s got us craving as much time outside as possible! With summer quickly approaching, now’s the perfect time to spruce up your patio for cookouts, drinks outside, and long nights with friends, and we’ve got just the inspiration for you. Take a look at some of the outdoor spaces that we’re loving lately!

Patterned Patio Floors:

We are obsessed with these spaces with patterned floors. Being outside should be a bright, fun experience, and these floors really help to accomplish that!

Love the built-in seating nooks in Design Love Fest’s outdoor space (as well as the color scheme!):

Emily Henderson’s bright blue and white tile really pops and takes this patio to a whole new level of amazing!

This patio from A Beautiful Mess is a painted pattern right on top of a concrete slab- it looks so good, you can hardly tell it’s not tiled!abm

Pavers, concrete slabs, and wood planks are all great materials for your patio floor, as well, and are often times more economical than a patterned tile. 

Love the different seating groupings here:

String lights (and lots of plants) for the win:

Loving the stark contrast here:

Obsessed with this cozy, boho-chic outdoor setup! Adding an outdoor rug can really help to create warmth for an outdoor space.

We definitely wouldn’t mind being transported to the Mediterranean with a patio like this 😉

Create a super moody outdoor space by using shades of dark grays and black, accentuated with dim lighting:

After seeing all of these inspiration pics, we can’t wait to get started sprucing up our own patios! We hope this helps to create your perfect patio space 🙂
