On a recent trip to New York we fell in love with the American Tin Tiles that we noticed in various bars, homes & restaurants. They are truly stunning and add texture and colour to ceilings all over NYC. So we just knew we needed to source them for the Rockett St George collection. The Tin Tiles first came in to production in the Victorian age, taking over from the more expensive carved plaster and cornices. Sheets of tin were hammered and stamped using cast iron molds and the finished product was painted to give the appearance of expensive, hand carved plaster. They are very versatile and can be painted, sprayed or distressed to suit your interior. We played around with some different effects that really highlight the beauty of these tiles...

Inside Style - My home.. Jane Rockett
Wednesday, 15 January 2014
Time for a good old clear out. There is something about all that food, drink and weeks of over-indulgence at Christmas that makes you want to shed your skin and move into a new year feeling fresh. We've done countless 'swishing' events in the office and still the wardrobe bursts. We've streamlined and uncluttered our shelves - making way for a decor reinvention..
We've just started stocking these fantastic Square Stacking Boxes - they arrive as a blank canvas, ready to be personalised..
We love being inventive when it comes to re-decorating. Depending on which colour scheme you are working with, why not buy a few test pots in your favourite colours and paint the inside of each box a different colour. These boxes can be simply stacked one on top of another, or wall hung to create a feature in itself. Showing off your lovely ornaments and candles needn't be dull. Experiment, be playful, and most importantly, get organised..!
