The summer blues


The summer blues

The colour of the ocean and of clear summer skies, blue is a truly classic choice in interior decorating.

Always calming and serene, from inky darks to bright gingham, there is a spectrum of blues to choose from within our collections.

In today’s article though, we’re diving in and sharing with you a selection of our favourite tiles in cool blue tones, to bring a sense of tranquility to your kitchen or bathroom project.

A Neptune kitchen, complemented by SoSpruce brick tiles from our Soho collection

This icy blue-toned tile is SoSpruce brick from our Soho collection. With its freshness and subtle tonal variation, this tile brings to mind a dip in a cool pool on a hot summer's day. Use it in combination with warm-toned textiles, white cabinetry, timber-effect flooring and raw brick for a look that radiates British summertime.

The combination of Neptune's Burnt Sienna paint with Silverless Street from our Savernake collection conjures images of historic Tuscany.

This earthy kitchen from Neptune combines their wonderfully warm, seasonal Burnt Sienna paint with raw woodwork and a calming cool blue to create a look that is both grounding and optimistic. Try it with our Savernake square tile in Silverless Street - a soft blue grey - for a combination that sends the mind straight to the sun-drenched, historic towns of Tuscany.

Neptune's Chichester kitchen, shown with tiles in Diminished Blue from our Marlborough Matts collection.

The soft tones of Diminished Blue tiles from our Marlborough Matts collection are the perfect complement to this cool white Chichester kitchen from Neptune. Tiles from this collection feature a surface that is perfectly smooth and completely flat, for a look that is soft yet architectural, clean yet cocooning. They're simply perfect alongside classic clean, white cabinetry, chrome hardware and natural stone.

A stunning rustic kitchen from Plain English, complemented by the organic finish and seaside tones of our this tile from our Halcyon collection, in Dapple.

If it's rustic charm you're looking for, consider a tile with characterful texture and a little more green to its blue, such as this one, in Dapple from our Halcyon collection.

The Halcyon collection is a palette of eleven delightful heritage colours inspired by memories of childhood summers spent on breeze-blown English seashores. Each individual tile from the collection is crafted with a great deal of care and time, pressed into its wooden frame by hand, resulting in an organic, rustic finish with rough edges.

A quintessentially seaside shade, Dapple is quite simply in its element in a heritage-style kitchen such as this one, from Plain English.


Blue continues to be one of our most popular colours, and you'll find no shortage of choice across our collections. If you're struggling to make a decision, help is at hand. Simply contact our design team who will be happy to assist you in selecting the perfect tile for your project.
