In our fourth and final collaboration with bloggers and industry experts, we are looking at the beautiful ways you can use Laura Ashley in the heart of your home – the kitchen. As one of the most used rooms in a home, we’ve got advice on decorating from Emma Martin and British Ceramic Tile, who share their favourite trends and products from the Laura Ashley range.

The kitchen should be a functional space, but with a family it is very often so much more than that too. Ours really is the heart of our home, and hosts everything from homework, to parties, to Saturday evening family gatherings. Our Laura Ashley Bramley table is perfect to fit us all around (and a few extras from time to time!).
With children it’s not wise to be too precious about furniture pieces, and we love how this one just improves with age and wear and tear. We aren’t too worried about the odd score and scrape, and have been so impressed by how beautiful it still looks after a few years of continuous use. A proper country kitchen piece!
British Ceramic Tile
Following on from the success of our latest Laura Ashley collections, we’ve translated further iconic Laura Ashley prints into a range of floor and wall tiles to offer even more choice when it comes to tiling in the home.
New colours have been added to our popular Artisan range, with the new shades of seaspray and charcoal already proving to be a success. With its traditional, handmade rustic look and feel, Artisan is perfect for tiling quintessentially British country kitchens.
Why not use an expanse of your favourite Artisan shade in one uniform size, perhaps broken up with a coordinating border? Or combine different size formats for added design interest? These ceramic tiles need no special maintenance and are ideal for high traffic areas such as the kitchen, effortlessly marrying design with practicality.
