It’s often been said that opposites attract. And when it comes to combining colours and textures, leading UK tile manufacturer, Johnson Tiles, believes it’s true. Mixing matt and gloss, playing with scale and form, and placing pure whites against a deep, rich palette of hues – it’s fair to say, creative interiors favour the brave.

At Johnson Tiles, the creative team is all about offering a varied range of options, to help its customers’ ideas come to fruition. For the next few months it will be celebrating colour and texture combinations to help enthuse and inspire.

When it comes to creating interiors that truly ‘wow’, there isn’t a more colourful palette than the iconic Prismatics range. Available in 68 hues, two finishes and five sizes, any idea can be transformed into reality.

Similarly, the Chroma range boasts a bold palette of re-imagined primary tones for modern interiors. Tarragon, Ocean, Poppy and Sunset will ensure an injection of fun and function to any residential or hospitality project.

For a touch of sophisticated simplicity, the Eminence range boasts a subtle textured surface effect, which evokes feelings of calm serenity. Its impact is purely created through its unique structural finish in a Ripple, Flower or Weave pattern, making it the perfect choice for contemporary living spaces.

In contrast, Drift provides an earthy palette of hues that replicate the colours associated with nature. The ceramic tiles’ matt structured finish further implies a nod towards our natural surroundings, with inspiration taken from the subtlety of wood and windswept reeds and rushes.

Sporting some serious style credentials, Tones in a Wave or Nano finish offers a mixture of texture and a varied colour palette, ranging from Charcoal to Cream, to provide the perfect balance of both form and function.

Baker Street is available in seven cool tones, from Chalk to Coal, and paired with its gloss finish, the range provides a high-end, and highly stylish, approach to surface design. Through a combination of subtle colour and understated texture, the slim format lends itself to creative lay patterns such as Herringbone.

With 10 colour options, and an on-trend hexagonal shape, Selene utilises a monochrome palette and intricate pattern to ensure it makes a bold statement. When combining the matt finish with the décor option, the slight illusion of movement is created for unparalleled impact.
