We adore using a simple white tile here at Ca’ Pietra. It may appear at first glance as a plain, uninspiring choice but the reality is very different, as these Instagram projects show. Each one uses a different Ca’ Pietra tile and you will see how the effects vary so wonderfully, with each interior showing a totally different look and feel.
In interior designer Cecilia Halling Howells’ kitchen, Ca’ Pietra’s Oasis ceramic gloss tiles in white are used to great effect, adding warmth and iridescence to an otherwise all-neutral scheme. The painted white timber cabinetry and marble worksurfaces are effortlessly paired with these rectangular Zellige-inspired wall tiles, laid in a brick effect for a touch of industrial chic that works well with the brass lights and wall-mounted pot filler. The kitchen is north facing, so the warm hues of the wall tiles really make a difference in softening and brightening up the space. As Creative Director of @Elicyon, a luxury interior design studio in London’s Kensington, Cecilia knows all too well what makes a space work and these tiles are the perfect choice.
Effortlessly chic and sophisticated, this bathroom from @casa_de_cara features Ca’ Pietra’s reeded Bamboo porcelain tiles in white, which perfectly complement and contrast with the eye-catching brass shower fittings that add an industrial touch. The fluted tiles are made from hardwearing porcelain and have a glossy finish that gives the stick-like natural bamboo effect a lustrous look. As part of a whole house rebuild, the bathroom will provide a calm, tranquil space in which to retreat when the dust and chaos of the renovation project get too much. Additional elements are from @tomdixonstudio and @lussostone with building work by @your_home_surrey_ltd.
Ca’ Pietra’s Bamboo porcelain tiles have also been used to great effect in this bathroom by @the_raw_renovation. Soft and soothing, the stick-like mosaic gives the wall and splashback plenty of visual impact without detracting from the polished brass taps, sculptural vessel basins and Hollywood-style double mirrors with lights.
Luxurious and understated at the same time, this stunning bathroom by @lynseyrowe.interiors shows how the layout of Ca’ Pietra tiles can also add impact and wow factor to your space. Using Carter ceramic gloss tiles in white and installing them in a herringbone effect makes this wall a feature in itself. The rectangular decorative wall tiles combine a hand-crafted look with a traditional glazed sheen, which is the perfect backdrop to the illuminated oversized circular mirror, bulb pendant lights and timber vanity cabinet complete with Ferla Ribbed concrete hexagonal pink basin by Elle + James and brushed gold tap on top. As an interiors and bathroom designer, Lynsey knows exactly how to combine different textures and materials for perfect results.
White tiles really come into their own in a monochrome scheme, as this bathroom by @renovating_60 shows so well. Part of the renovation of a Victorian 1890s property in Hertfordshire, the space uses Ca’ Pietra’s Camden ceramic gloss tiles in white to offset the blush painted walls and black and chrome accents. Previously a dark and dingy space, the addition of a skylight has brought in some much-needed natural light, which reflects beautifully off the classic bevelled rectangular tiles. Laying them in a vertical format also enhances the Victorian feel that this bathroom emulates so well.
Taking her inspiration from hotel bathroom chic in the style of @heckfield_place, home renovator @holly_homestyle has blended the old with the new in this stunning en-suite bathroom, which features Ca’ Pietra’s Kennet porcelain tiles in Chalk White for the walls and bath panel. The shower is from @houseofenki and the lights, @pathsonlight. The paint colour also enhances the cool, calming ambience with Holly choosing Ca’ Pietra’s Proper Good Paint™ in Maple’s Cloth for the walls. The glazed, hand-dipped effect of the tiles and rectangular shape show how classic and contemporary features can be effortlessly paired together for the best of both worlds.
