In the green room

Green is a wonderfully calming and rejuvenating colour, synonymous with nature and bringing to mind images of fresh shoots and the verdant English countryside.

Often overlooked when it comes to decorating, green in fact has real versatility and will add a sense of balance and freshness to either modern or classic spaces.

Tiles are a wonderfully simple way to add this relaxing hue to your decor. In today’s article, we explore some of our current favourites to inspire you...

A crisp, white kitchen from Neptune; Seasons medium bricks in Dawn Chorus.

A touch of green can really bring a kitchen or a bathroom alive. A cool, pale green tile such as this medium brick in Dawn Chorus from our Seasons collection adds light and energy to a crisp white kitchen. In this stunning example from Neptune, blackened brass hardware adds a contemporary finish.

A rustic kitchen from DeVOL; Victorian Green tiles from our Kensington collection.

Choose a deeper tone to enhance a more traditional, heritage decor. This Victorian Green tile from our Kensington collection is a rich bottle green, inspired by tiles seen on the exteriors of Victorian London pubs. Use them in a bathroom or a kitchen with dark accents and copper or brass fixtures to create drama.

A classic yet contemporary kitchen from Neptune; hand-piped Ettie patterned tiles in Willow from our Ullswater collection.

On the other hand, a soft, mellow green with yellow undertones like this Ettie patterned Willow tile from our Ullswater collection feels wonderfully harmonious with the neutral palette of this classic yet contemporary kitchen from Neptune. We love the comforting effect created by mixing earthy greens with warm woods, white worktops and inky cabinetry.
