Introducing Shoreline & Alfriston Clergy

15 April 2021

Alfriston Clergy Tile Moodboard

Timeless, elegant and influenced by the stunning National Trust property, Alfriston Clergy House, the first built property in the care of the National Trust and bought for £10 in 1896.

Alfriston Clergy is a traditional repeat pattern tile inspired by the oak leaf carving that can still be found on one of the beams at this medieval house. It is this oak leaf that is the inspiration behind the National Trust logo and the repeat pattern this collection is based upon. The tiles are printed in Stoke-on-Trent, the home of UK textiles and ceramics. This is an English-made collection with enduring design.

From their home to yours

In period properties this style looks effortlessly chic in a bathroom complete with a colourful or crisp white roll-top cast iron tub with claw feet and a freestanding vanity unit with countertop basin.

In the kitchen or dining room this tile looks striking as a backdrop to mid-century modern furniture or simple Scandinavian-style fixtures and fittings.

Extend the decorative finish to alcoves, chimney breasts and the interior of cupboards, larders and walk-in pantries for a nod to nostalgic English charm.

Shoreline Tile Moodboard

A rectangular ceramic tile with a handmade effect and contemporary glazed finish, the Shoreline collection is inspired by the 780 miles of coastline which is cared for by the National Trust.

Shoreline perfectly captures the spirit of the coast with a palette reminiscent of coastal paths and bracing white cliffs. Home to rare animals and insects, areas of coastline cared for by the National Trust include the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Giant’s Causeway and land at the White Cliffs of Dover. National Trust protection ensures that our beaches, their micro-climate and the flora and fauna surrounding them are looked after for their long term survival.

Available in seven soft, subtle shades, the 10 x 20cm tiles combine a glazed finish with a rustic, handcrafted effect.

From their home to yours

Shoreline brings a subtle rustic charm to splashbacks and feature walls. The coastal colour palette is enriching without being overwhelming and can be used as an accent tone or as a neutral backdrop to bold coloured furniture or furnishings.

Combine Chalk White or Gull with dark green or blue kitchen cabinetry or enhance a classic bathroom scheme with Shingle or Shallow Water tones. Shoreline also looks striking used on walls with contrasting colours above and below the dado line for a unique finish to your interior.
