EDGY TILES!

(Dansk version nederst)

I was just thinking about our future bathroom! Its all white and I can’t stand it… but I haven’t decided on any color, material or anything yet! But I do know that at the moment its covered in boring white tiles. I love tiles but I need them to be a bit more inspiring, so my first thought was to paint them – not in one color but make my own piece of art on the tiles! Hmm, but what to draw and how to? Haven’t tried to decorate tiles directly on the wall before, so Im still in the stage of research 🙂 If you have done this, please share your experiences with me! 🙂  In my research I passed by Etsy, just to see if there were any special and NOT too expensive tiles – I actually found several cool ones, but most of them Ive seen before – so even though I like them they’ve become a bit too traditional to me. BUT, then I found MY ART ON TILE ! A wide selection of VERY different expressions but I felt in love with these edgy, beautiful and maybe provocative ART tiles! Our future bathroom is yelling for some edge 😉

THIS IS MY ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE! What do you think cool, beautiful, provocative, tasteless, stylish… ?? 🙂 

Jeg sad lige og tænkte på vores nye badeværelse! Alle de hvide vægge, jeg kan ikke fordrage dem … men, jeg har endnu ikke fundet ud af farve, materiale eller noget som helst endnu! Men, det jeg ved er, at lige nu er hele badeværelset dækket i kedelige hvide fliser. Jeg elsker fliser, men de må gerne være lidt mere inspirerende, så min første tanke var faktisk at male dem – ikke ensfarvet! Havde egentlig tænkt at lave mit eget “kunstværk” direkte på fliserne! Men hvad skal jeg tegne og hvordan? Har ikke prøvet at dekorere fliser, der sidder på væggen før, så jeg er stadig i research fasen 🙂 Hvis du har gjort det, vil jeg meget meget gerne høre dine erfaringer! 🙂 I min søgen kom jeg forbi Etsy, bare for at se, om der var nogle specielle og ikke alt for dyre fliser, og jeg fandt faktisk flere fede, men de fleste af dem har man set før – så selvom jeg godt kan lide dem, så er de måske blevet lidt traditionelle. MEN, så fandt My Art On Tile! De har et bredt udvalg af MEGET forskellig stilart, og jeg faldt pladask for de her smukke, “skæve” og måske provokerende fliser! Vores nye badeværelse skriger efter kant;)

DET SIDSTE BILLEDE ER MIN FAVORIT! Hva synes du? Fede, smukke, provokerende, smagsløse, stilede…?? 🙂

Take it out on your wall!

Today’s material – TILES!

The next couple of days, as promised, my focus will be on wall deco. Walls are a the frame of the interior playground but I believe the whole frame, whether walls, ceiling or floor should be included in the interior design to make a complete expression – you simply cant neglect the frame – there is no scene without a frame, its like a book with no words – so TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR WALL!

I love tiles – they add an edge to the room, a mix of materials, tiles, wallpaper, paint, wood etc. makes the room dynamic and alive! Personally my heart beats for the funkiest ones, but in the right mix – combined with plain surfaces, they become more modern and classic!

There are no limits in the use of tiles – we have passed the time where tiles only belong to the kitchen and the bathroom! Give your room a makeover – you don’t need to make a whole wall, just a couple of tiles will add an edge and bring it to life!

First, Ill show the famous artilles – I know its “old news”, but I still think they sticks!

I actually used artilles (from http://www.arttiles.dk) for a project at Saint Martins College of Art. The project was to design a bathroom for a couple living in the high end of London. Based on a description of their personal profiles, I decided to make a mixed-style bathroom with a funky but classic touch – my main colors were black, gold and petrol! Since the couple had met each other in London I wanted to include that fact in the interior design, to give it a personal touch without being a cliché! SO, stick to the wall – i drew a wall made by small black mosaic tiles and art tiles in petrol, black, white colors – the art tiles formed a skinny version of London Tower Bridge! Get inspired by something you love, something that makes you happy looking at and create your own personal wall art!

These ones are awesome and I haven’t seen them used anywhere in Denmark, thats a shame! I have a billion of ideas how to create the most funky bubble-room, but again if you mix materials and surfaces the bubble tiles can be quite classic as well – if you are into classic style go for clean surfaces, same color shades but different materials! Go bubblicious!

MORE FUNK! Can you imagine a whole wall of these – psychedelic maybe, but funk to perfection! These tiles are described

“Tiles of Playfulness Synergy of Light Colors, Impressionism and Tiles”! 

If you can’t bare starring at your white tiles like me – go get some paint and make your own artwork! This one is made by Diva artworks http://www.divaartworks.com/Tiles.html , but why not do it yourself!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! As much as I love the funky, crazy stuff I am totally amazed by gold and copper, and I can easily imagine myself in a room covered up in steel tiles – ITS SO CLASSY!!!!!!!

 

GO CRAZY ON YOUR WALLS – the next couple of days you’ll get more on wall deco, stay tuned and happy decorating! 


Time for tiles!

Go rough and industrial…
