Think Mediterranean…

As suitcases are pulled from storage, our sandals dusted off and miniature shampoos fill our shopping baskets, it’s time for the yearly summer holiday where we jet off to sunnier climes.

But if, like us, you can only dream of white sand and turquoise water, why not take this dreary British weather as an opportunity to stay indoors and give your home a much-needed injection of sun?

Keep reading for three simple ways to add a Mediterranean vibe to your home…

Sunflowers! We’d all love to be running through a field covered in sunflowers, sun streaming down on us, but if that’s not an option, why not buy a beautiful bunch for your kitchen!

-For many of us, summer means linen, and lots of it! We’re talking linen dresses, tablecloths, bedding… Adding a white linen tablecloth to your kitchen is a surefire way to inject a hint of the Mediterranean! LinenMe has some great ones!

-Fresh new flooring! Create your own azure vibe with our beautiful collection of blue hue tiles! For flooring that mirrors those days when there’s not a cloud in the sky, try Mountbatten. Or for an understated touch, our Dee Hardwicke vinyl tile in Cornflower Blue.

Old Fashioned Susie’s Hallway Reveal!

Last month the wonderfully eclectic Old Fashioned Susie unveiled her new hallway on her blog, complete with our Neisha Crosland Check vinyl floor tiles, and doesn’t it look fab! Read on to find out what she had to say about our gorgeous floor tiles…

“I can’t believe this is our floor. It has the timeless looks of the Victorian chequerboard floors, but with the modern durability of Harvey Maria’s luxury vinyl tiles. … It’s so bold, but it really makes this small space become somewhere; a destination, not just a thoroughfare.”

“The toughness of the tiles was actually tested recently when a tradesman dropped one of his tools on the floor, he panicked, but there were no marks or any damage of any kind!”

Stylish? Tick. Durable? Tick. The Neisha Crosland Check collection really does offer you the best of both worlds. With its classic design and hardwearing nature, why not pop over to our website and order your free sample?

Sensationally Stylish!

This month we’re drawing inspiration from Lussmann’s restaurant in Tring, whose interior has been styled to perfection with sunshine yellow blinds, hints of teal and finished off with our beautiful Neisha Crosland Parquet flooring.

To create the look in your own kitchen, add a bold statement with bright yellow textiles for a hint of sunshine, contrasted with a muted floor colour. Our Neisha Crosland Parquet vinyl floor tiles are perfect, seen here in Eggshell.

And there you go, your very own sensationally stylish kitchen!

However, colour his beginning to pop up into interiors once again.
