Stark patios and lifeless landscapes are being replaced with earthy tones, raw and rough luxe, and edgy style as this spring’s design direction. Where once we created outdoor rooms that flowed from inside out, we’re no longer forcing Mother Nature to conform or bend to our will.

“Australians still covet an alfresco play area but design is now about being sympathetic to the outdoors rather than replicating the indoors,” says Beaumont Tiles Communications & Design Specialist, Christie Wood. 

According to Beaumonts, who closely follow European trends, three themes encapsulate new outdoor Spring schemes: earth, formation, and raw. “Flow throughout your entire property is still key in design but we’re shying away from bright light flooring and inviting the outdoors to come inside through more natural applications,” Christie said.   

“Natural design gives a sense of calm, relaxation and focus. Imperfections are now being celebrated in beautiful knots and grains of wood and the movement within natural stone.”  Black and charcoals are the new taupes and creams for outdoor. These hues create visual depth and are perfect to set off planting.

Not every room is big - think second bathroom, laundry, kitchenette, or courtyard/terrace - and styling them is often the hardest due to their small dimensions.

For many Australians, smaller sized accommodation is the abode of choice with the Housing Industry Australia reporting an 11 percent increase in units being built in Australia in the past year.

Choosing the right tile for smaller space needs particular attention because the aim is to maximise the design and give the illusion of more space. But getting it right is more than just the size of the tile – it's the colour, the way the tile is laid and the type of grout used that can make a difference.

The Block contestants were tasked with making the most of their terraces in the Melbourne apartment block. A trick they picked up on quickly was to create a seamless flow and a subtle point of difference.

The pace and demands of The Block never cease to amaze. In the first two weeks of the Blocktagon, ten people have produced five main bathrooms, five ensuites and five guest bedrooms.

That's a pretty amazing achievement even with an army of trades behind you.

So how did the teams go in week two?

Traditionally, black and white tiles were used in a checkerboard design. This staggered pattern can be traced back 2,000 years to the Romans and was reignited during the Renaissance as grand homes emulated the riches of that long lost empire.

Post war 1930s saw a resurgence of checkerboard in the lobbies and ballrooms of grand hotels – a fashion statement replicated across many home hallways, bathrooms and kitchens.

Wind the clock forward 80 years and black & white is trending again, but with a twist.
