Sea House Conservatory: More Floor Tiles

I added more pattern sections to the tile floor template.


To facilitate a smooth transition between tile colors, when I began to run low on the first set I glued them randomly further out on the template to integrate with the as-yet-to-be-painted new batch of tiles.

Using the same paints as before, I splattered up a new sheet to cut into tiles.

Meanwhile, I’ve got a working idea for the back fireplace wall, so I can alternate experimenting on that with setting floor tiles.

    Still love the colors. I think what makes everything look too busy are the dark grout lines. If those were lighter I think the whole floor would be more cohesive and easier on the eyes.

      Marilyn, thank you. Current ponder is to trim out a large rectangular “rug” of the set tiles to place in the middle of the floor, and surround with a tile border. This way I can cut the border tiles exactly to fit the width and length of the room. Sensibly, I should probably make a mockup to see…

    So you cut all these tiles separately one by one? I guess when I glanced at the last post I was thinking this was some sort of template that you glued under or over to make it look like tiles. You have the patience of a saint. It looks amazing.

      Bennie, I drew the design for the grouted tile pattern in Illustrator, then made a pattern for the individual tiles. My desktop cutter did the tedious work of cutting all the individual tiles. I printed out several copies of the “grouted” design and taped them together, and am now in the process of gluing each tile on. As I mentioned, it’s less dreary than I thought it would be :)
      And thank you! Glad you like it.
