Tile company (and Livingetc favorite) Bert & May has announced a new collaboration with paint manufacturers Little Greene – to translate their timeless colors into tiles.
The collection, which combines the best of both brands, features eight of Little Greene’s most iconic hues, printed on Bert & May’s signature tiles – soft, chalky cement squares and rich, glossy glazed herringbones. So, there is a finish to match every modern kitchen idea.
The Bert & May x Little Greene collaboration is the Mancunian-paint companies first tile venture, but it is not the first Bert & May collaboration causing excitement this year.
Instead, Livingetc enthusiasts amongst us may already know about our recent Arch collection with the tile powerhouse that consists of equally fashionable pieces (as seen below) to reshape your modern decorating ideas.
In both collections, Bert & May’s core palette of colors is mixed by hand in a meticulous process that ensures they are infused with nuanced tones and finished with a handmade aesthetic. This new collaboration combines the subtle aesthetic of Bert & May’s tiles with Little Greene’s matt tones for an indisputably chic finish.
And while Little Greene has a selection of 196 lust-worthy shades, the brands quickly identified the perfect eight hues from their Stone and Colours of England collections.
Stand-outs include Purple Brown (opens in new tab), a soft leather and deep crimson red that draws from a Victorian shade, and Bassoon (opens in new tab) (above) which injects golden, earthy subtleties to all surfaces.
Meanwhile, Livid (opens in new tab) combines two of the most sought-after hues of the year – green and gray – to create the epitome of trendy shades that will enrich your space across all seasons.
And of course, the collection would not be complete without paying homage to (arguably) the most famous of Little Greene's offerings, French Grey (opens in new tab) (above). This timeless classic works seamlessly on a tile and means you can continue your scheme across every surface of your home.
All these organic hues create a focal point when standing alone – but also create a statement when paired alongside a Bert & May shade. It’s a partnership made in color heaven, following the Bert & May X Livingetc collection, naturally.
