Step Inside Victoria’s Green Home with Indoor Outdoor Tiles
The colour green is a vibrant and refreshing hue, often associated with nature. Evoking a sense of tranquillity and harmony, it is frequently used in interior design and decor to create spaces that feel serene and relaxing. Step inside Victoria’s green home with the Provence Crema indoor outdoor porcelain tiles, where its considered colour palette makes a calm and inviting kitchen through to garden space.
A Victorian detached house surrounded by fields is home to Victoria, her family and their cocker spaniel puppy, Barley. Purchased two years ago, the house has seen a full renovation with a kitchen extension and new patio installed. Before and after photos show how the kitchen has been opened up, flooding in plenty of natural light, and the central island being moved to create a space for the whole family to gather.
During the design of the extension, Victoria wanted there to be a cohesive feel between the kitchen and garden, opting for Crittall bi-folds and matching indoor outdoor porcelain tiles to make the most of their beautiful garden. “We have a mirror above the aga which allows me to look outside while cooking in the kitchen. The green kitchen was an intentional choice to bring a part of the garden indoors.”
The flooring was an important part of the decision-making process, as Victoria knew they wanted something practical and easy to keep clean, as well as being a light tile that would give a bright and airy feel. Recommended by a friend, Victoria visited the Quorn Stone Bury St Edmunds tile showroom and fell in love with the Provence Crema stone effect porcelain for its large format size and being available as a matching indoor tile and outdoor paving tile.
When asked to summarise the style of their home and garden, traditional, classic and warm were all feelings that Victoria wanted to create, with an understated approach, letting the changing landscape of the garden do the talking. The outside space itself consists of manicured formal gardens, as well as beautiful naturalistic planting, framing the house effortlessly and leading up to the newly installed porcelain patio.
The Provence collection offers a stone effect porcelain tile with a subtle tumbled appearance. Together with the character and realistic nature from tile to tile, this soft tumbling effect lends itself beautifully to rustic, country kitchens and homes. The Provence Crema tumbled porcelain has an ivory cream base with soft hints of grey - the detailed print and subtle variation between the tiles makes this stone effect porcelain hard to distinguish from a natural limestone.
