The first day of May is here! In Great Britain, May Day is often celebrated in traditional fashion with some Morris Dancing and other forms of outdoor activities which bring people together. It is a day when the vibrancy and colour of spring is particularly evident. Another positive aspect of May Day is that it also means a bank holiday is just around the corner!
Aside from Morris dancing, other May Day traditions include; dancing around a maypole, singing folk songs and crowning a May Queen. It is seen as a time when remembering the past is as important as enjoying the present. Spring is a transitional season in which we enjoy aspects of both winter and summer – just take a look at the weather!
At Tiles Porcelain we are well aware at how traditional and contemporary features can work together in perfect harmony. A fusion of two different styles can produce stunning results, as shown below:

This design provides an aesthetically delightful living space in which warmth and comfort are clearly not compromised.
In this bathroom design the natural beauty of marble (right) is combined with contemporary features. The emphatic combination of black and white colours fits perfectly against a light cream and beige backdrop. Marble is an exquisite choice of tile when you are looking to create a crossover design. It is the stunning natural veins which provide a rustic quality but also makes them perfectly compatible with modern decors.
