New and unique forms of tiling is always provide a source of pleasure, and one that is so simplistic in its idea even more so. “William More or Less” from MacMillan Amies Studio is a concept so effective that incorporating even the smallest amount of pieces can be entirely transformative.
Inspired by the textile designs of William Morris, these tiles are more than just mosaics. Individual leaf motifs in varying reliefs and shapes offer a delightful freedom of composition. The delicate range of neutrals (Dreamy Alabaster, London Grey, Dove White, and Black) enable the ranges ability to act as a subtle feature, and showstopping decor.
Before the ornamental, curvaceous forms of “William More or Less” came “Second Nature”, the company’s original decorative leaf tile mosaic. These designs have a truly rustic aesthetic with an autumnal colour sceme. The leaves are harsher, taking their inspiration from maple and oak, as well as beech, mountain ash, and smaller shrub inspired elements. A touch of whimsy is offered with butterflies, frogs, dragonflies, and ladybirds.
