We may have only dipped a toe into the new year, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about spring. From everyone here at Rock Form, we hope you have had a fantastic start to the year and are ready for everything it brings. Before we know it, the weather will start to improve, and we can look forward to the most beautiful time of year: spring.
Spring is a truly inspiring season from an interior design perspective. The wonderful colours and the blossoming of life that this time of year brings can create some charming spring aesthetic looks in your home. Here are just a few ways that spring can be used as inspiration for your next tile design.
Pastel colours just scream out spring. These gentle, beautiful colours are perfect for adding a touch of colour to a room without overpowering it or creating too bold of a statement. They soften a room and can be used for many different applications but are particularly suited to kitchens and bathrooms.
Pastel coloured tiles can be used to create a stunning feature wall or a border around a neutral coloured wall. Light blue, light pink or light yellow tiles can add a beautiful touch to a bathroom or kitchen and really bring in that spring feeling.
Aside from pastels, neutrals are also a great spring-inspired look. The lack of colour can create a warmth achieved through the gentle tones, with the added benefit that they can be matched with a wide variety of furniture and fittings. Shapes and patterns can be created with these tiles to give the wall or floor an injection of style and sophistication, they don’t have to be boring just because they’re a neutral tone. Muted, earthy tones give a relaxing, calm feeling that can really breathe those spring feelings into any bathroom or kitchen.
You often find patterned tiles in a single shade of a colour, or an ombre of one colour. This spring, why not go bold with complex designs by applying a mixture of colourful, geometric tiles that capture the eye at first glance. Choose colours that complement each other, perhaps with a floral effect to really bring in that spring-inspired look.
Spring brings to mind a look that is light and airy; the days start to get longer, and we start to take advantage of all the extra available sunlight we lost during the winter months. Our homes can reflect this wonderful time of year with design choices to really accentuate the changing of the seasons. Using light tiles can completely lighten up a room, they can be used in virtually any room, in any shape, and they are easy to decorate around.
Make a room pop and add some character to your home with the addition of some bright accents. Any room can be transformed into a bright and visually stunning space with strategically placed tiles. Choose bright colours or unique tile shapes and patterns to create bespoke artwork or fabulous feature walls. Contrasted against a light or neutral backdrop, these features are certain to make a room stand out.
