Walls and floors – details that impress

A good friend of mine is building a beautiful house and she has been searching for tiles to the shower room and the kitchen. We have started talking about it before the summer and it was clear that the choice will be something different than just pure white walls. She already had some ideas but when we began the search for more options. It turned out  that there were so many collections to choose from, it almost gave me a headache. From morrocan patterns to retro designs, from simple squares to fan or dragon scale shapes – the selection seems just endless. One thing is clear: Scandinavian home does not have to be white and grey:)

So I would like to share some of the ideas on how to make the interior outstanding in stylish and interesting manner yet suitable to the style of minimalistic interiors.



It all started from this picture:

ceramic tiles, interior design, bathroom,

Having one wall with the fan shaped, blue/beige shades tiles has been a dream of my friend. So the search started and we have found the tiles from the producer: Dekor Kafle Producer Studio http://www.handmadewalltiles.com/ . They specialize in making unique, hand-molded and hand glazed tiles and decors. Check the some of the beautiful colors and shapes!

The price range for the decor is between 2€ – 4,40€ per tile (depending on the size). With orders bigger than 1 sq m, you can ask for discount!

Another place worth checking is: Azule.nl . “Azule cement tiles are all handmade and come in hundreds of different patterns and colours. Sizes differ but the 20x20x1,6cm collection is by far the biggest in the world.” Definitely worth checking!

In Helsinki one of the places to check is definitely store: Smyygi,. You can check in person the great collections of hand made in France tiles.

And here some inspirations:
