If you're looking for some new tile inspiration, we have just the thing for you. Bert & May’s new Artisanal collection is truly a thing of beauty; inspired by Mediterranean skies, crystalline turquoise waters and Spanish flora.
The collection includes three covetable new designs in a carefully curated, Spanish-inspired palette, with patterns reminiscent of reclaimed pieces and graphic motifs that take cues from Southern Spain’s natural beauty.
Each pattern has been designed to work in harmony with earthy tones - natural woods, woven materials, handmade ceramics and terracotta - to create an effortless and artisanal look.
The Artisanal collection showcases the skills of Bert & May’s artisan craftspeople based in Andalucia. Each tile is delicately made by hand in moulds using a traditional technique to create beautiful patterns with a tactile quality.
The three different designs work beautifully together for a cohesive collection that is perfect for outdoor entertaining, but which works equally well indoors.
Lee Thornley, founder of Bert & May, said: 'Our new Artisanal collection is reminiscent of relaxed sunny days in Spain and has a timeless feel that could work inside or out.' And it already has us dreaming of sun-soaked holidays, lemon trees and olive groves.
Discover the Bert & May Artisanal collection – and how to style it
Named after the hilltop town in Cadiz, the very roots of Bert & May, this design is inspired by an old reclaimed tile, which has been brought back to the modern day with a deep Mediterranean blend of blues and greens. Reminiscent of deep seas and olive trees, this look is perfect for a patio or garden room filled with greenery.
Styling tip: Vejer would look great in an orangery or garden room, styled with lots of plants, such as trailing and hanging plants and established olive trees. You can imagine these tiles in a room where you would want to escape to, with rattan furniture and soft natural cushions.
A modern sunny design, which is influenced by the southern Spanish coast, this vibrant motif and deep azure blue takes its inspirations from whitewashed walls and bright skies.
Styling tip: Formentera is a vibrant pattern, so let the motif and colour be the hero and keep the styling to one palette, using natural materials, wicker, raffia, and natural woods. It looks striking with whitewashed walls and is perfect in a large space – such as a statement patio floor or wall.
Inspired by the picturesque walled town in northern Spain with breathtaking terraces and natural beauty, this striking new design creates a clean and fresh look and makes a bold statement when used in large areas. It comes in washed-out Navy and Brighton Stone to give a subtlety and warmth.
Styling tip: Try being bold and pairing Pals tiles with reds and oranges for a bright and vibrant modern theme. Ikat fabrics and exposed brick also looks beautiful. This style would look stunning in a city courtyard garden.
