The Victorian Emporium added this to How to Use Victorian-inspired Tiles in a Modern Home17 November 2015

Make a feature of your fireplaceOne of the areas of the home we’re probably most used to seeing Victorian tiling is the fireplace. Our forebears often used fireplace tiles to pay homage to one of their hobbies or interests, so you’ll often see designs featuring musical instruments, plants or birds. Even in contemporary living rooms, the fireplace is often a lovely central feature around which to arrange seating, so it’s a great place to use some interesting and highly coloured tiles, even if your overall style is clean and cool. Make it your indulgent nod to the world of Victoriana – bright tiles can look great in a plain, pale room, as a white backdrop gives the colours space to breathe.

Glass doors with striking black metal frames match the industrial look of the staircase, and help to create the flowing but separate feel between the bedroom and its sitting room that Michael wanted to achieve.The elegant fireplace was sourced by Dyer Grimes’ interior designer. The aquamarine tiles perfectly complement the soft blue of the bedroom walls and the colours in the picture above.
