As tile is one of the most versatile building materials in existence with its many forms, shapes, patterns, and building applications, it’s no surprise we’ve seen tile used in some very unique ways across our years in the industry. Besides the traditional backsplash and bathroom applications which might be thought of as typical tile uses, as the industry expands and new materials are introduced, we’re seeing tile be used in ways like never before.

Starting this week off with some of the best of the bold, we’re turning to House & Garden UKfor their best of “The List”, highlighting some bold color choices, lively patterns and bright interiors. We chose to feature Jessica Buckley Interiors’ Georgian architecture project “juxtaposed with bold colors and clever lighting” in the picture above. We love how it comes across as “bold” without being mismatched or too distracting. The vivid blues complement each other well, and notice how even the coffee table has some shades of blue which match the bold scheme perfectly.

4. Designing Below, A Sunken Kitchen

Sunken Concrete floor expands Victorian terrace house in London, Dezeen

As we continue our week of bold design ideas and creative interiors, Dezeenshowcases one of their most recent highlights which fit our theme perfectly, a Victorian semi-detached house which they’ve sunk the concrete floor in to maximize ceiling height. The project turned out stunning, and the challenges the designers faced were extensive.

“Faced with what the architects described as an 'oppressive' ceiling height in the kitchen, the floor level was lowered by half a meter through the design of a 'concrete tray', filling the width of the site and extending into the garden to create a new sunken patio.”

The project highlights design creativity as being the key to their success and goes to show what a little “outside-the-box” thinking can provide to a design challenge. Check out the whole house in the link above, as you won’t want to miss it!
