Whether it's the vibrant hues associated with the Victorian era, hard colours tied to Art Deco or earthy colours pertinent to the Federation era, colour marks our history and continues to shape design today. What's more, by adding a certain colour or combination of colours you can change the mood or how big or small the space feels. Coloured tiles can bring a wall or floor to life and when paired with timeless fixtures create a space that looks as good in 50 years time as it does today.
Consider making the floor a focal point with the Fitzroy tessellated pattern or Trompe L'oeil diamond tiles in shades of blue. A speckled blue tile adds a sense of playfulness whilst the Barclay is simple in design but stunning when laid. Go back to the art deco era with the Aurora wall tile and blue hexagon florette or keep it timeless with a victoria blue subway wall tile.
Earth tones draws from a colour palette of browns and tan and create a calm and earthy scheme. Expressive tessellated patterns such as OET I or speckled Killara pattern are a classic choice whilst a small hexagon pattern like Central Park in black, yellow and rouge makes for a stand out floor. Traditionally used for a pub exterior, burgundy subway wall tiles can add character to a kitchen splashback.
