More Tiles For A Kitchen Wall

xar395_3d_03_800

Now that I have my kitchen set complete and looking sort of reasonably good, I have to admit it, I am hooked on making tiles.

Once again these tiles have their roots in the mid-century in the UK for both the colour and for the simple design. What I particularly like is the way that tiles look when repeated because of the join between them and the fact that it is obvious that they are individual squares. This somehow seems to give the wall a fragmented yet whole look which would be difficult to achieve with a wallcovering made to resemble tiles.

When I created my mid-century kitchen I created the tiling in either single tile or the popular one pattern and then one plain tile which was popular in the 1960s. Although not the most inventive design I have ever created I am, however, pleased with the result. Because of the way that the tiles are created I am not able to bring you a swatch but you can see a larger version of the image above on our Flickr page which is here.

The design was created with Xara Designer while the image was made using my ever present Cinema 4D.
