terrazzo tiles for bathroom

AD- Tile Giant X Victoria Baths

If you’ve read this blog for a while you’ll know one of my favourite places in Manchester is Victoria Baths.

It won hearts on the BBC’s Restoration programme and my mum used to swim there as a young girl. It hosts pop up cinema events, weddings (here’s one I went to), vintage fairs and lots more. Last year they even managed to fill one of the pools and I went for a swim! I’ve also visited for a memorable travelling chair blog campaign here.

I was thrilled to find out late last year that Tile Giant had paid a visit to Victoria Baths and had felt as inspired as I often do there. They used the Baths textures, motifs and colours to create a range of tiles.

One of the great things about this collaboration is that Victoria Baths get a percentage of each sale of the tiles too.

Which means the restoration can be continued, there is still so much work to be done!

I’ve created a mood board with a selection of the tiles, this is the type of inspiration I’d be looking at if we had a bigger bathroom. I’d use the subway tiles vertically and perhaps even have an ombre effect going on, as there is more than one shade of green tile. I love the green tiles at Victoria Baths and to be able to create my own version of it for a dream bathroom project would be amazing.

I’d fill it with natural textures and lots of plants, creating a lushly layered effect. Green on green, on green. The floor would be the Tile Giant X Victoria Baths Terrazzo style tiles, a timeless look in flooring.

The mockup above is the first time I’ve done one of these, I know it’s not perfect. I really wanted you to get a feel of what I would create.

Taking influences from the tones of tiled floors in Rome and combining them with the leafy greens. I imagine this bathroom would be somewhere I’d never want to leave.

I’d love to know what you think of this range and my ideas?

To bring home a little bit of a grand Victorian building and live in it every day? Yes, please.
