The absolutely lovely Atlantic boutique hotel in Byron Bay was featured on the cover of the latest House and Garden. Kimberley Amos designed the chic and unique hotel which is so the place to stay.The gorgeous Petit White Fleur design was used here  on the island facade and has really given the kitchen a burst of life.This stunning encaustic tile is a classic design that always looks sharp, and always looks good. Kimberley has amazing style and each guest accommodation is unique and very today. She has incorporated new into the old and it worked..See blog on the Atlantic 25 the Feb.The Petit Fleur design comes in many colour ways and though busy is warm and gentle on the eye. Thanks to Kimberley and thanks to House and Garden. Another example of the Petit White Fleur is shown here in Jodi Yorks kitchen splash back which was featured on the Design Files on the 8th May.Thanks to Sean Fennessy for the image.I love how Jodi has run the tile to the ceiling. Once again the patterned tiles have brought life to the space and the effect is stunning....

Patterned Feature Wall

A simple and incredibly effective way to spice up a wall is to cover it with  pattern or with art work. Encaustic tiles are pieces of art and therefore become art on your wall or floor or wherever they are laid. A repetitive pattern is very eye catching and draws you in. It is busy yet calming.This is what I just love about these handmade patterned tiles. Caroline Choker is an incredible interior designer and just understands the balance between pattern and still. Caroline designed the Grounds at Alexandria which I featured before and another of her projects is  Parlour beauty and Laser in Sydney City Westfield. Here the reproduction tile Black and Red Flower was chosen as a feature wall and ceiling. It suits the mood of the Parlour perfectly.It is sophisticated ,warm and stylish. It draws you in to a space where you feel the treatment will be of high quality.The encaustic tiles as the feature have given this statement.along with the fittings and the lighting. A calm space in the busy city. Thanks Caroline....
