Celebrating British Ceramic Tiles in Interiors

The use of Ceramic Tiles in homes and architecture is as ancient as universal and diverse, which is why this April 2017 saw the launch of Britain's first National Tile Week– "a celebration of tiles, aiming to educate consumers on the quality and versatility of tiles and how they can be used throughout the home."

Our award-winning My Country Aboriginal Art Ceramic Wall Tiles are testament to the expertise of the British Ceramic Tile industry, as it is thanks to our collaboration with Johnson Tiles that we were able to successfully reproduce the intricate detailing and vibrant character of this Art for the very first time in design history.

We turned to Johnson Tiles after hearing about their specialist Artile service through the British Museum. Using state of the art techniques, Artile painstakingly reproduces any illustration, drawing or picture onto a tile with no loss of detail or colour.

The quality of the reproduction was especially crucial to this enterprise, given that in Australian Aboriginal Art every dot, line, abstract & figurative representation and choice of colour has special meaning and spiritual importance to the Aboriginal people. This interior collection provides a window into a world that many have still not yet had the privilege to see or encounter.

Johnson Tile were a delight to work with, taking on the challenge with dedication, enthusiasm and sensitivity for the nature of our commission — "we weren’t just recapturing an image but a culture, a history, and all of its folklore and traditions. Implementing traditional lithography techniques combined with our state of the art technology and high-res scanning process, we were able to accurately match every detail and colour of Sarah and Geraldine’s paintings."

Tiles, especially ceramic tiles have as many functional advantages as different styles.  The ancient Greeks were prolific tile users, designing tile motifs inspired by abstracted natural forms, developing stylistic standards that still today serve as reference points. Tiles are foremost durable: tough, water-resistant, heat-reflective and help regulate ambient temperature. Decoratively, the breadth and width of contemporary tile designs make it one of the greatest creative assets in interiors.

National Tile Week is an initiative of the Devon-based company British Ceramic Tiles, who turned to interior designer Julia Kendell, whose passion for emotionally-connected design inspired her successful TV work on  DIY SOS and 60 Minute Makeover, inspiring her nickname as 'the Nigella of DIY'. Here are some of her tips and advice on working with tiles:

"I’m a huge advocate of tiles as they are virtually indestructible and brilliantly practical in the home. Hygienic and easy to clean, they will take all the knocks that day–to-day life can throw at them, making them a superior surface material. National Tile Week is a great opportunity to focus on and celebrate tiles in all their colourful glory! It’s a great way to inspire creativity and illustrate the many ways they can be used around the home to create beautiful and unique interiors...

Far from limited to just walls and floors, tiles can be used around the home to create colour and textural interest where you might not expect to find it. Try using them to frame an opening through an open-plan area, or to add a pop of colour to alcoves or chimney breasts – you’ll love the way they look! Added to old furniture they’ll give it new life, along with a one-of-a-kind finish you can’t buy in the shops...

Ceramic tiles are hardy, easy to install and need very little upkeep. They’re also available in a wide range of sizes, prints and finishes, making them a good value, versatile option."

Her top-tips blog is a great practical guide if you are thinking of shopping for tiles.
