Tradewinds is inspired by an imaginary retired captain who resides in a shiplap house where the forest meets the sea. Who nowadays wanders the shores happily beachcombing & birdwatching and keeping to the rhythm of the sea. He may have a parrot and his house is littered with souvenirs & curiosities from his seafaring adventures to faraway shores.
My collection, although in a variety of materials of encaustic cement and marble, is collectively steeped in nostalgia & the romance of times gone-by of manned lighthouses with keepers, magical sea-creatures, wooden ships with canvas sails, mer castles and exotic spices & riches from foreign lands.
A range that encourages you to mix and match to suit your wooden seaside house or your French Chateau. A combination of encaustic colours and patterns that conjure up the romance of the seafaring adventures that then traverse to a marble selection that are inspired by my many travels and the notions of faraway lands and magical finds. Timeless, classic with a hint of humour, and a dose of nostalgia.
Byzantine Design is about so much more than a simple tile. The materials we fill our spaces with have the ability to affect our every day and evoke a sense of inspiration, modernity or nostalgia.
Choosing a tile is not simply about how it looks, but how it feels – the texture of the surface against your skin, its power to transform a room and its ability to incite an emotional response. Our business is in curating beautiful materials to create spaces that make you feel alive. It’s built on passion, dedication and a genuine and lasting love for design.
