The TILE FILES

January 26, 2011

Are you a tile-o-phile? If they’re ceramic, stylish and monochrome – I can’t resist. Much to the boyfriend’s chagrin. “How many coasters does one woman need…?” Fair point, well made. Here are some tiles on my coffee table:

Top left is a vintage Dutch tile inherited from my Grandma…top right are Big Tomato Anglepoise tiles available from Supernice, backed with felt and used as coasters…bottom left is my treasured Rob Ryan button tile…and bottom right, some random old dominoes. Pourquoi pas.

A bit more tile style for the file; some more Rob Ryan treats and Welbeck beauties. I’ve raved about Welbeck’s cutlery and jelly tiles before – but they really are stunning – perfect for a kitchen splashback. Have a look at the coastal, postcard ones too. Bianca Hall designs fun tiles, too; I think this one might be the next to be smuggled into the house and discreetly incorporated into my coffee table collection…

It was merely resting. If it’s not tiles I’m obsessing about, it’s black and white plates. Now, if somebody was to make a Ridgway-Homemaker-inspired tile, THAT would make any tile-o-phile smile. – Ellie

  1. I LOVE those Rob Ryan tiles! I thought the vase with the flowers on it looked great in blue on his vase, but it looks even better in black here!

    I had no idea about the world of tiles until last year and The Big Kitchen Project – and then I found THESE:

    Have a look, they’re gorgeous. We have them behind our cooker and they’re my favourite thing in the kitchen.
