Freshen Up Your Bathroom in 2017 With This Mixed Tile Trend

Mixed tiles are popping up in rooms far and wide, and they just might be what your 2017 space needs. Pattern lovers will fall head over heels for the limitless possibilities that come from mixing colors, textures and styles. And minimalists will breathe a big ol’ sigh of relief at just how little decor is needed once complementary tile comes into play. That said, whether you’re a “less is more” decorator or a “give me all the decorkind of person, this style will instantly add more depth, layers and intrigue to your aesthetic. Don’t believe us? Behold the inspiration below!


1. Subway + Patterned: Subway tiles are an invitation to play with different colors and patterns because there’s very little that won’t complement them. And this rich blue pattern demonstrates just how bold you can be without overwhelming your space.

2. Mosaic Wall Mural: Murals don’t need to be all paint all the time. A mosaic wall mural like this one is all kinds of visually compelling. (via Domino)

3. Brick Lovin’: Brick might not be your first thought when you’re considering a new bathroom, but as it turns out, it’s kind of perfect. And this accented tile thrown into the mix takes it from lovely to over-the-top gorgeous.

4. Tile Play: If you err on the side of conservative, that doesn’t mean you can’t get down on this trend. Simply mixing and matching shapes of the same white tile can completely transform the look of a room while maintaining a minimalist vibe. (via INT2 Architecture)

5. Patterned Recess: For a bit of sophisticated subtlety, look to any recesses you might have. Integrating a different tile into them will instantly add depth to your design. (via Dayka Robinson Design)

6. Vanity Accent: A different tiled vanity can work wonders when it comes to defining space. If you’re like so many of us who are workin’ with smaller spaces than we’d like, consider this idea to break things up a bit.

7. Black + White: Incorporating the colors of black and white will afford you a little more pattern flexibility. This pattern might appear overly crowded in a different color, but it looks every bit of chic in this classic color combo. (via Erin Williamson Design)

8. Tiled Bathtub Base: Another great way to separate and organize visual space can be found on the ground. This tile is not only glamorous — it also beautifully diversifies the space.

9. Base Color Play: White subway tile is great, but gray might be even better. Gray acts as the base color in this bathroom to keep the aesthetic soft and warm, while the muted blue pattern provides texture to the overall look. (via Chic Deco)

10. Complementary Artwork: Clever tile combinations also lend themselves well to artwork. This soothing piece over the bathtub serves to connect the busy floor and basic walls.

12. Small Space Style: You don’t need a lot of space to make this style sing. This teeny tiny bathroom is bursting with style thanks to its tile pairings.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
