We’re big fans of Instagram at the Collection (by the way, our Instagram is here!) because it is such a great source of visual inspiration.

Not only can we keep up with our favourite designers but we just love seeing what inspires and intrigues the great community of design-savvy people that use Instagram.

One of our favourite accounts is ihavethisthingwithtiles. It is the perfect impactful Instagram account. These are a few of our recent favourite images.

They really remind us of Louise Body’s patterned wallpaper collection ‘Tiles’.

We’ve been selling this collection of patterned wallpaper for a while and we love how fresh and contemporary it looks despite taking its inspiration from vintage Portuguese painted tiles like these…

Louise Body is a UK based designer who has been designing patterned wallpaper since 2002. Originally, Louise hand screen-printed all of her wallpapers to order but demand quickly outgrew supply and Louise moved production to a wallpaper factory in the north of England.

11 years on, Louise runs the company with her husband Jonny from a studio in St Leonards On-Sea on the south coast of the UK.

The Tile wallpaper collection combines photographic Trompe L’oeil, with intricate drawings to create the impression of real tiles.

Printed onto a robust, coated paper they can be used in kitchens and bathrooms. And of course, Louise’s own Instagram and Pinterest accounts are full of inspiring ways to use her patterned wallpapers.

We particularly like this idea of using the Tiles wallpaper on a folding screen.

The Tiles wallpaper looks great in this living room.

And this is a great way to use the Tiles patterned wallpaper in a fireplace.

You can find the full range of Louise’s Tiles Wallpaper as well as her other designs here on the Collection site.

We are also very excited about the new wallpaper designs from Louise that will be coming in soon as well as her wonderful Tiles tea towels which as another great way to add a little colour to your kitchen!
