Which is just as good, because right now we’re head over heels for our Cotto Trellis tiles. And our favourite thing about it? The way that one simple design can be styled up in so many different ways.
So, if you're after your daily dose of design inspiration then read on - we'll show you some of our favourite ways to lay this triangular-style tile.
