The Top 6 Ca’ Pietra National Trust Tilesadmin
Finding two things that go together well is often very difficult. Whether it is choosing patterns to complement each other or two colours that aren’t going to clash, creating beautiful interior design encompasses the art of collaboration. However, this newest collaboration may have you rushing to fill your online basket.
The National Trust Collection
The National Trust has partnered up with Ca’ Pietra to produce a collection of classic and contemporary tiles. The National Trust Collection has been created by Ca’ Pietra’s inspiration which has come from the beautiful majestic properties the Trust maintains, the stunning scenes of the coast and countrysides and, of course, the Trust’s exquisitely bright and vivid gardens.
Whilst Ca’ Pietra has gained a beautiful font of inspiration from the National Trust, they have also pledged to donate a minimum of £30,000 from the sale of this collection of tiles to assist the Trust in their continuous work to preserve our natural, architectural and beautiful heritage. As Ca’ Pietra stockists, we wanted to showcase our top 6 favourites from the collection to inspire your own home designs.
Paddle in the Shallow Coastal Waters
The National Trust cares for a large variety of coastlines across the UK, from the surfing beaches of Cornwall to the large sandy beaches of Portstewart Strand in Northern Ireland. Lose yourself on a sunny day at the beach with these incredible Shoreline Ceramic Shallow Water tiles for your bathroom.
These tiles can complement both a contemporary or classic aesthetic. While they would look ideal in any bathroom, they could be used perfectly in a kitchen as a subtle blue splashback, but they would certainly work best to compliment your bathroom.

Step Into History With Limestone
Inspired by the limestone flooring featured in the cloisters at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, these tiles can add a natural and earthy tone to your home. Fitted into your kitchen, they will flatter most styles of a room.
Adding these large profile tiles can also help you maximise the perceived space in a room, and their structure makes them hardwearing, providing you with a historical and organic connection to the Trust for many years to come.
Explore the Woods With Glendurgan
Taking the breath-taking environment of the Glendurgan gardens as inspiration, these stunning warm grey tiles would make the perfect statement wall in most rooms. The pattern tells a story of the native ferns and moss that are usually located in this area of Cornwall.
Although we tend to imagine tiles for the kitchen or bathroom, we believe these tiles would make a unique addition to a cloakroom or en-suite and would contract wonderfully with dark wood furnishings.
Antique and Contemporary With Cheshire
Step back in time with these sleek yet traditional style tiles taking the inspirational elements from the heritage site of Lyme Mansion situated in Cheshire. These tiles may look simple, but unusually arranging them can help create a pure and unique feature for your bathroom.
The colour of these tiles provides a timeless effect and will be sure to stay in style for many years. However, if you are not entirely convinced about purely white tiles, try adding a splash of colour with some of our similar but bolder Original Style tiles to mix it up.

Incorporate the Trust’s History
The National Trust purchased the Alfriston Clergy House in 1896 for the low price of £10, which, even by today’s inflation rates, would have been equivalent to £1417.50. This house now remains a grade II listed building and is the first building to be saved by the Trust. The garden is filled with beautiful tulips and nature. This pattern was inspired by the oak leaf carving still visible in the beams of the house and was the National Trusts’ own inspiration for their logo.
Be a part of the National Trusts’ history whilst adding a bit of a natural style to your home with this incredible design. This product would make a perfect feature wall with a story to tell and a conversation piece for any visitor.
