We celebrated all that is great about the summer last week with a safari supper in our street – everyone met for drinks at the start, then we all divided into different dinner parties with each course at a different house with different people.  The whole thing was a joy.  The house we started at had just renovated their garden, removing worn decking and replacing it with black and white geometric tiles, not only did they sit beautifully against the green of the garden, they totally blurred the line between inside and out.

Kasia Zareba designed the Fossil porcelain collection based on inspiration from the imprints of fossilised plants .  The deceptive simplicity, the lack of symmetry and the feeling of movement all lead to a bullseye hit in the design stakes.

Remember Granby? They haven’t stopped evolving since winning the Turner Prize last year.  Even better, much of what they do totally feeds into the Future Candy trend – that perfect sweet spot of imperfection.

These are their unique ceramic tiles created by smoking in a BBQ for 12 hours with sawdust, newspaper and banana skins.

The effect is tantalising, like you’ve taken something light and let it go daaaaaark.

Thank goodness for moral depravity.

Question: Did you choose your favourite based on the actual splashback…or which kitchen you preferred? (casing point, the pic above..nice tiles, shame about the curtains…)
