Design Inspiration: Indian Summer

Posted by Karen on August 15, 2017

As is customary at this time of year, we are hoping for a warm autumn spell or an Indian summer as the saying goes. In anticipation and in order to create some inspiring schemes, we thought we would look at some of the beautiful warm tones and ‘Indian summer’ inspired tiles that we have in our showroom at the moment. An Indian Summer conjures up images of many things for us, the obvious one is the colour palette of warm shades inspired by the height of summer, as we head towards autumn.  




As you can see these gorgeous summer tones we’ve put together, create original and creative schemes that would inspire you to create bright, fun and a permanent holiday atmosphere in any room. Summer bright and warm tones such as pinks, corals and oranges, mixed with gold accents really emphasise the warmth of the scheme whilst creating a glamorous and exotic edge that can transport you to another place. Using different shapes, as we have in these mood boards, also creates interest and depth, meaning the scheme has a more exotic feeling which helps to capture that ‘Indian summer’ vibe.




Together with lots of different textured layers and interesting patterns, our ‘Indian summer’ mood boards will be hopefully be the ‘wow factor’ that you are looking for in your designs and take you far away from the grey and neutral tones that we have come to expect.




In order to either ramp up the impact or keep things more subtle, the tiles can be mixed and matched and either used all together or added on their own as an accent. With these bright colours it’s easy to create an impact, even with just one colourful feature tile, which could make the rest of the scheme really pop. However, we do like to go for maximum impact at Reed Harris and can’t help but swoon over some of these mood boards and imagine the beautiful interiors that could be created with these brave and beautiful colour combinations.

If 15 years plus in the tile industry teaches you one thing, it is that you never know it all! Having said that, I have picked up a lot over the years and I am hoping to share some of the more interesting and useful information with you through this blog.
