Tile Style: How to Design Successfull by Jill Blake
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From William Morris to the Moors, from Morroco to Majolica, tiles have long been a versatile and highly popular form of decoration. This work provides advice and information and guidance on all aspects of designing and decorating with tiles. An array of tile types are included from machine-made to hand-painted, from warm terracottas to subtly coloured encaustics, with a multitude of design ideas on how to use them. Diagrams show how to lay tiles to achieve patterns and permutations, from the simplest one-colour schemes to complicated geometric and trompe l'oeil effects, all making use of borders, corners, insets and the combination of different tile types. A colour-coded tile directory gives advice on how to use each particular shade, the effect a colour will achieve in a room and suggestions for matching or contrasting tiles. These ideas are complemented by a practical section covering all technical tiling information, including measuring, cutting, laying, grouting and sealing.
