TYLES Tuesday: Boom, Boom, POW!

I talk a lot about the inspiration behind my patterns. And there's almost always a thread, something I can trace the concept back to. But sometimes... sometimes it's just happenstance.

TYLES Tuesday: And Now For Something Completely Different

TYLES Tuesday: And Now For Something Completely Different

The political climate was... interesting... as I was putting together my last collection in early 2017. I wanted to express my love for my neighbors and for our diverse country as a whole, but how? I mean, I'm making patterns for wall decor -- not protest posters. So how could I channel all my thoughts and energy?

TYLES Tuesday: Rolling With The Changes

TYLES Tuesday: Rolling With The Changes

Often, when you make something the first time, it doesn't turn out quite right. Sure, it may seem great to you, but to those producing it... well, that's a different story.

When I first designed our Alhambra pattern, it took the usual rounds to pull together. The first drawing didn't quite work...

Welcome to the very first TYLES Tuesday! We will take you behind the scenes and show you the inspiration and process behind our patterns.

We kick things off this week with the Original Souk pattern that started it all (in my own kitchen), and how it evolved to the Renovated Souk pattern in our current collection.

What does

What does "holiday-ready home" mean?

I put up the first Tyles in our home in a hurry -- I was having the family over for our son's 1st birthday over Thanksgiving weekend, and I didn't want them to see our still-bland kitchen, with untiled backsplash walls. I just wanted it DONE. And we had run out of money, and definitely time, to tile the backsplash as planned before our guests arrived. Tyles was such an obvious option... A vinyl wall option that was easy (and fast) to apply, wouldn't break the already-stretched holiday bank, and wouldn't ruin our walls for a future tiling product. Two years later, it's still up, and I'm not worried about tiling the backsplash anymore. I will, eventually... but in the meantime, my Tyles backsplash still makes me happy.

So, make yourself happy. Get that kitchen finished in time for your party. Brighten that living room in time for the couch-crashers. Make the dining room dazzling for your dinner guests. They won't be the only ones falling in love with your place... I guarantee you will too.

My First Tyles Blog Post!

My First Tyles Blog Post!

Hey all!

I've decided to start blogging for Tyles. No, not because it's a great business idea -- given how well I keep up with my blogs, I think it's probably more detrimental than helpful. ;-) But I have a lot of info to share about Tyles, all the options available, and how they work, and what better than a blog for all of that?

A bit about me... My name is Nicole Block, and I'm the creator of Tyles. I designed the first ever Tyles for my own kitchen, and after I saw how great it looked and how well it worked, I knew that I had something that would help so many other people. What renter didn't wish for a high-end decor option for their ugly walls, that was temporary?! What owner didn't have a room in their home that they'd like to update, but not spend a ton of money on? And what business owner didn't have a space that they'd like to make look like their own, while paying their lease every month? Up until now, the vast majority of temporary options were ugly, or faux versions of something else, or just boring. I wanted to make something different. Something fun, something stylish... something to reinvent the idea of temporary decor.
