Hannah Guilbert, creative marketing manager at Original Style comments, “The captivating story behind our Artworks collection starts in 1986, primarily developed as a collection of tile sets for cast iron fireplaces, the range has grown to offer distinctive glazed wall tiles in different shapes and sizes, hand-crafted decorated tiles and borders and recreated masterpieces inspired by art and architecture from many eras.

“Our Artworks collection has stood the test of time, offering wall tiles with unique, reflective glazes and a heritage feel. We’re incredibly excited to announce Ascot Blue as our Tile of the Year for 2024, its denim-like tone is right on trend and impactful as well as liveable. Developing new glazes is a meticulous and extensive process and crowning Ascot Blue shines the light on our talented production teams and draws attention to astounding British craftsmanship’”

Sumptuous, soft and elegant, Ascot Blue’s glaze recipe has been carefully formulated to produce the silky, reflective surface that our Artworks tiles are renowned for as well as creating colour depth and lustre.

Available in a multitude of formats, Original Style’s studio team has curated a number of beautiful set and flat lay designs that boast the versatility and detailing of this new plush glaze, to showcase the many ways in which these gorgeous tiles can be styled.

Luxurious Bathrooms

Using a mixture of tile formats is a great way to create interest and detail whilst using the same colour. This bathroom showcases how using tile mouldings with half tiles and field tiles creates a heritage yet luxe bathroom look.

‘For a luxury bathroom with impact pair Ascot Blue with a statement floor. We’ve styled a mixture of tile formats with decorative floor tiles for a glamourous bathroom look. Opt for classic sanitary ware gold or brass accents and even a touch of greenery to complete the look’ says Emma.

Timeless Spaces

Ascot Blue’s liveable, cool tones make it the perfect shade for hallways, utility rooms and boot rooms. Tiles are a practical and stylish choice for these areas of the home and look especially beautiful when used on walls and floors for maximum impact and functionality.

Emma concludes, ‘Ascot Blue has a dusky nature with grey undertones, making this colour versatile and easy to live with. Pair with soft neutral shades and heritage prints for a classic look that will stand the test of time.’
