If you’re heading into lockdown and in search of the latest something to keep your mind occupied, our monthly mini installment of our magazine, Ca’ Pietra Curates, brings you an edited selection of what’s caught our attention most recently. From the Instagram account that brings us a daily dose of dreamy decor to our creative director Hamish’s tile pairing du mois, feast your eyes on what’s trending at Ca’ Pietra HQ this November…
This month, we’re all about roundups, and it was this ten tranquil bathroom piece by dezeen that ironically got our collective pulse racing. All dark in palette, sombre and soothing in mood and urban industrial in texture, these are bathrooms that certainly tempt you over to the dark side where you’ll feel 100% cocooned. Natural lime plaster against smoky concrete tiles, deep grey terrazzo flooring meets seaweed green walls, and a brutalist bathroom in Australia complete with rough-sawn timber ceiling – yes, yes and yes please. For a similar look, try our concrete basin collaboration with British designers Elle + James, the perfect partner for our Blenheim Smoke Porcelain or Chemistry Porcelain collection.
How thrilled we were when House & Garden published its piece on what to watch on Netflix if you’re an interiors lover. Boxset recommendations are a real need for most of us right now as we spend more and more time in our great indoors, and so to be spoilt for choice on which will grant us our much-needed creative fix is a situation in which we’re more than happy to have found ourselves. From movie classics like Amelie (think parquet floors and Haussmann buildings galore) to crisp, cool concrete Scandi settings in The Bridge (the original rather than the remake), even if you’ve seen them all before you’ll find yourself appreciating them through a whole new lens.
There’s rarely a post that hits from TAT London that we don’t find ourselves instantly liking, saving, sharing etc. A treasure trove of all things antique and vintage compiled by interiors stylist, Charlie Porter, not only is it a visual representation of his online store where he sources antiques that range from the quirky to the quintessential British collectible but it’s also a place of divine inspiration for anyone considering a spot of decor. And if you’re as tile-obsessed as we are, there’s more than a few vintage compositions to get those creative cogs turning – check out the Mediterranean kitchen by Javier Gonzalez Sanchez-dalp that he posted but a few weeks ago – layered tile goals indeed. Psst… get the look with our our Bazaar Moss Green or Colour Pop Square Ceramic (in Menta or Kiwi) tiles combined with any of our encaustic tiles from Modella Amaretti to Salisbury.
As part of our new collection this year, we launched the eco-conscious Brasserie mosaic – a hexagonal web of tiles crafted from recycled glass and coloured in a selection of rich and earthy hues. Right now, the matte Mustard glass ones call out to me in particular, closely followed by the Burgundy and Khaki – colours that feel cosy and comforting. For real impact, use one colour on the floor (providing it’s a light traffic area) and another on the walls. The Sand colourway is my preferred neutral in the collection if you want to pare back the amount of colour in your room.
