A beautiful, timeless flower with hundreds of varieties and a wide range of colours, the rose is one of the most popular flowers worldwide. Adding beauty, symbolising love and transcending fashion, we think they look so good in home decor that we have a whole tile range dedicated just to roses. In this blog, we are going to look at rose tiles ideas for a variety of home decor colour schemes ad interior design styles.
What do Roses Symbolise?
Flowers can mean different things to different people, so it’s worth researching what a flower symbolises before putting it permanently on your walls. Fortunately in the case of roses it’s pretty straightforward; roses, almost universally, symbolise love. They are often present at occasions celebrating love and life – births, birthdays, Valentine’s Days, weddings and anniversaries. Furthermore, different colours of roses can symbolise different kinds of love:
Roses in Home Decor
One of the earliest uses for roses in decoration was rose paintings on the ceilings of Roman banqueting halls – to remind them that things said under the rose (or ‘sub rosa’) were to be kept secret. Over time, this ceiling decoration eventually became the ‘ceiling rose’ we know today – a popular feature in both modern and period homes. Roses have been used to adorn almost everything we can think of in the home – curtains, chairs, tablecloths, ornaments, tableware, bed linen and even carpets. While the fashions for colours, styles and materials come and go, the rose remains perennially popular.
Rose Tiles Ideas
Due to their elegance and timelessness, roses make a beautiful addition to both period and modern homes, large or small. These rose tiles ideas include lots of different styles, options (and levels of subtlety!). Some of the rose tiles are based on antique illustrations, lending them an authentic vintage style for a period home or ‘shabby chic‘ room decoration. Some of the rose tiles designs started out as watercolour paintings, giving them delicate colours and lots of detail. With a range of colours available too, you will hopefully find some inspiration for the tiled area in the room you are re-decorating.
