A floored obsession – Sonya Marish

13 May


Sometimes we become a little bit obsessed with decorating our walls and dressing windows and kind of forget about the floor.  Maybe we will throw down a rug, but rarely is there as much excitement about the flooring as the walls or a piece of furniture. A few years ago I stumbled upon an article about a store which has evolved from the passion of Byron Bay based designer Sonya Marish.

Sonya has the most amazing range of antique and reproduction tiles which have been sourced from her travels around the globe.

“Forever searching for those rarities, I was over the moon when I stumbled across some beautiful antique tiles that I had to have. Their history, beauty and imperfections were exactly what I was looking for.” Sonya Marish, Jatana Interiors.

Sonya began her hunt for the perfect tiles when she commenced styling her own bathroom.  From here an obsession started which grew into her business in Byron Bay Jatana Interiors….So if there is such a thing as tile porn then this is a good place to get your fix and who says that you have to stick to tiling the floor….. Let me know your thoughts.

My favourite has to be when they are all mixed up to create a colourful festival…who says you have to stick to conformity.


Which is your favourite?….. Meanwhile on with the colourful adventure…..

    Such beautiful tiles! I really like the “patchwork” look too. And I would love to do a kitchen wall with the grey Moroccan bazaar tiles – They are modern and exotic at the same time… Love it!

    I adore these tiles. I’d love some for my laundry and powder room in my new house. My favourites are grey Moroccan bazaar, but any of the greyish or blue ones would do. I have a consistent problem accessing Jatana Interiors website. Any idea of their prices?
