One of the simplest tile designs I can think of is the chequered layout of black and white tiles. From Victorian bathrooms to Art Deco halls to 1980s kitchens, it’s been a staple design choice. What inspired Squared was the desire to play with that form while keeping the tile as simple as possible. I eventually achieved this with a combination of subtly distorted pattern and colour. #SminkThings
Inspired by his personal collection of vintage cutlery, Simon Rawlings, creative director of David Collins Studio, devised this spoon set, appropriate for cheese, oysters, eggs, caviar, sorbet and soup. Using Cutipol’s Goa range as a starting point, the handles feature the studio’s signature blue shade. #wallpaperhandmade
Handmade Moorish designs, known as Zelliges, bring unusual pattern to a bathroom and are especially successful in wetrooms and shower enclosures, creating a hammam feel. In Britain, Habibi and Studio Dar both specialise in these Arabesque tiles, but Fired Earth also has these fabulous Paris Caberet tiles in its new collection.
Marthe Armitage I adore this woman. I was looking for an article about her work with lino block carving published by Gardens Illustrated a few years ago but cannot find it, I have too many boxes at home. SAND, thank you for repinning it!
