Inspired by Nature – Tile Concepts on Display this Week

What’s on display this week at TILE junket?

Last week, our team farewelled our fabulous showroom administrator Jean as she departs for new adventures in Perth with her fiancé.  Jean often assisted our Interior Designers with clients during Concept Consults, liaising with suppliers and familiarising herself with the beautiful tile and stone products entering our showroom.  Jean, an Architecture graduate, naturally has an appreciation for quality design and her contribution to our Showroom on the floor and behind the scenes was highly valued by clients and staff alike.

As her final day grew close, I asked Jean to give one last contribution to the showroom and create this week’s Showroom table display.  Jean’s inspiration for the display this week is nature with a forest influence.  Over to Jean…

I’ve realized I don’t really like grey, I find it’s too cold.  I actually quite like beige, but you can go really wrong really quickly with beige (one word – yellow).  Recently I’ve discovered a good medium between grey (which is trendy, but cold) and beige (kind of dated but warm).


It’s green.  Understandably, some may flinch to this statement.  I’m not talking really bright greens, but something more muted and grey, something closer to ‘griege’.

Greys that throw a bit of green/olive can look warmer than greys that reflect blues and these green-tinged greys tend to be the ones I lean towards.  I think they work well in tying together both warm and cool colours, which is sometimes a tricky task to do, and make a good base.

In this concept display, I’ve mixed olive-greys with warmer muted browns and colder silver greys, with some blocks of solid black to add a bit of an edge.


A balanced mix of different grey tones represents Australian nature, eucalyptus trees that are more silver grey and sage then the classic green.  Try pairing these fairly light, neutral colours with pops of solid black for a modern edge (trending matt black tapware, anyone?)


The natural inspiration of this colour palette lends itself to any sort of organic looking product, soft marble benchtops and timber cabinetry is a classic.


To sum it up, green-greys are a basic colour for those looking for a more ‘natural’ feel, while still being modern.

Be inspired by these insitu concepts.
