Get The Look: Antique Glam

Antique Glam liberally draws from Gothic, Art Deco and Victorian styles and oozes theatricality and refinement - think dark wood, ornate chandeliers etc.

The trick to an antique inspired look is beautifully crafted pieces and tasteful splashes of colour, which keep the space feeling stylish and fresh. 

Here are our pick of wall and floor tiles to fuse old world charm into a hallway, bathroom and beyond.

Balance a tessellated floor with classic subway tiles

Dial up the glam factor by pairing a traditional tessellated floor with white or black subway wall tiles with a straight, bevelled or cushioned edge.

A hint of decorative on the walls

Decorative embossed tiles were especially popular in the Victorian era and continue to add character to bathroom walls and fireplaces. The trick is to use them sparingly and paired with classic subway tiles.
