Architecture and fashion have long gone hand-in-hand transitioning through to the current season with a collaborative influence where culture meets structure.
From sculptured shapes to decorative prints, the link between interior design and fashion trends can be traced throughout history, linking through to British Tile Style heritage.
Intricate patterns played key role in interiors throughout the Victorian era, many of which can still be seen in many homes today. Chequerboard patterning was a popular tiling choice, seen in many a hallway and bathroom.
This ties into classic British tailoring beautifully to curate a monochrome look which still has impact on today’s catwalks.
Bold prints and plenty of colour set the tone for Art Deco interiors, with the same being said of its transition into clothing designs. William Morris inspired OTT styling of florals, going all out for statement prints to set a room apart.
Within fashion this adapted brilliantly, to create statement looks, bringing personality to those basic day-to-day shapes as our pictured 50’s shaped dress shows.
Originating from Dutch roots, Delftware became hugely popular in British Design, translating from intricately painted porcelain styles through to kitchen wall décor.
This style has visible movement across the fashion world, as dresses take vintage inspired patterns using the traditional blend of white, pale blue and navy across floral printed dresses.
Mosaics have always made for impressive displays in grand public buildings, typically hand-made by master craftsmen each tile would have a unique tale to tell.
This is a trend which will always have space within the fashion world, inspiring designers with the complicated patterning and puzzle-piece nature to give a completed look.
