Obsessively Original Interiors


Lover of home interiors and all things craftable, Lissi lets her personality shine brightly through with her interior styling. Channeling her love of colour and DIY throughout, she uses our geometric Henry tile in her latest bathroom project. Read on to find out more!

My interior style isn’t for the faint hearted. I generally go for a neutral base with bold splashes of colour and pattern. Last year I renovated the family bathroom using the ‘Bertie’ tile and a whole lot of colour and pattern.

This year, my guest bathroom is ready for its makeover, nothing has changed in there since we moved in six years ago and I suspect for a good few years before that. It is whiter than white with zero personality, not my style at all as you may have gathered!

I began my search for a floor tile as the starting point for my scheme. There are a few considerations; the floor space is shaped like a ‘T’ so I wanted a relatively large pattern repeat, and the corner bath, which has to stay, has a curved front so I wanted big, square tiles for ease of cutting. The final things on my checklist for floor tiles were bold pattern and neutral colour, I want an eye-catching tile that works with and not against the bold colours I love to use in my decor. The ‘feature floors illusion tile’ and the ‘Henry grey Matt tile’ caught my eye as two solid options.

When the samples arrived and I tried them in the space, the Henry tile stood out with its larger pattern and subtle texture, I also love the fact that they can be laid in different rotations to create either a star or box illusion pattern which I have yet to decide on.

Next up was choosing a backsplash tile for around the bath and sink. I was looking for a white tile for this because I plan to experiment with using one of my accent colours in the grout and want a good contrast. I began looking for standard subway tiles which I have seen do this look brilliantly when the ‘White Marble Hexagon Wall & Floor tile’ caught my eye and I fell in love! This shape and detail of this tile are absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to give it my own twist.

With the tiles chosen, I set about creating a mood board to try them alongside the accent colours I have in mind for this scheme which are yellow, green and pink. The crisp lines of the hexagon tile pop against the emerald green I have chosen for the grout and the greys of the Henry tile stand up to my bold yellow and compliment my softer pink which I am planning to use to paint the base of the bath. The walls will remain white and I will be adding some more playful accessories to personalise the space further. I can’t wait to show you how it all comes together!
