As proud Parisians, adopting the same ambience as seen in their French residence was fundamental – in order to feel truly ‘at home’. A combination of cultures in a contemporary styling was the overriding design theme, yet each space throughout the home has its own identity – largely as a result of the tiling choices.
Tiled walls have been a low-maintenance, durable alternative to paint and paper for decades – yet it is only thanks to recent technological developments that printed tiles now offer the equalled aesthetic advantages of wallpaper. The Boutique Bloom slab tile delivers an alluring appeal and adds a stunning statement to the living room. Despite the impactful print, the monochrome colour palette allows this tile to adapt to an array of styles and schemes, from Modern Boho to Art Deco Decadence.
Plethora of Possibility
The two guest shower rooms both feature terrazzo tiles for coherent continuity, yet creative contrast is achieved with a clever play of scale in the print of the terrazzo pattern, from the micro Frammenti to macro I Cocci.

A plethora of possibility lies within this print: play with extracting the highlights, lowlights, or accent colours of the terrazzos speckles to find your dream scheme with this new, long-lasting tile trend.
