They have a simple honed, matt finish and tones that vary from honey to rose, in square and rectangular formats. These sunny shades really lift neutral tones in chic, modern schemes.

For the ultimate authentic look...

...there's our exclusive Reclaimed Terracotta. These tiles date back to the 18th and 19th centuries and are sourced from 'Maisons de maitre' across France. Their heritage and their distinct colour - burnt rose, with a mix of earthy flaming - make them a very special addition to the home.

If you're looking for a contrasting colour partner for your walls, grey tones pick up the secondary shades of terracotta beautifully. Sage green works really well too, as well as 'colour wheel' neighbours like warm rose and ochre.
