Timeless Tile Ideas, Made to Last

Timeless Tile Ideas, Made to Last

Posted by Kirsten Sharp on Jun 3rd 2021

Some people think timeless = boring, but I beg to differ! 

Timeless interior design is rooted in simplicity and classic colors, yes. But I'm a firm believer that you can keep things interesting through the patterns you choose to include.

Whether it's tile, fabric, or wallpaper... pattern is a great way to make your space unique - and more importantly - it's a great way to make your space a reflection of you by choosing patterns you love.

Our tile collection was inspired by vintage wallpaper and fabric patterns - while we've added a few new designs over the years, what's interesting is that our original tile patterns are just as popular today as they were when we designed them 11+ years ago. 

So if you're looking for a classic look for your kitchen or bathroom that will stand the test of time, you're in the right place! 

To give you some ideas, I pulled together some of our favorite timeless tile patterns:

1. Damask Handmade Tile:

Inspiration really is everywhere! While some of our other patterns have more elaborate stories behind them, our Damask pattern was actually inspired by the fabric on a kitchen apron. 

See this pattern featured on several kitchen backsplashes here.

2. Cobham Handmade Tile

Our Cobham pattern was inspired after my husband, Pete, and I visited a stately home in the  England for a wedding. You can see photos of the home and read more about it here.

3. Hiser Handmade Tile

This pattern is one of my favorites - I actually got inspired to create it after my mom found some original Victorian wallpaper in the house I grew up in. You can read the whole story here.

4. Brocade

Back before we had kids, ("BK" for "Before Kids", as my dad calls it!) Pete and I visited Paris, oooo la la! The Brocade pattern was inspired by a visit to the Montmartre fabric district there. See more photos from our trip here.

And you can see how Brocade looks on a kitchen backsplash here.
