Usually tile companies love to wow you with images of their tiles in vast imposing luxury homes and hotels that seem like they’re a dream away; so it makes a refreshing change to see what can be done in a small interesting space. A space that real people can relate to and draw inspiration from for their own home. This small space happens to be an old railway carriage in Belgium!
Working with Italian tile company NovaBell (who supplied the tiles for this project and the images for this post) Station Racour converted two old train carriages into little self contained holiday rentals. Skillfully renovating and refurbishing old rolling stock that until 1990 regularly hauled passengers along through Belgium’s railway network.
I love the use of the old luggage racks and seating that they’ve reused in the dining area.
The colours and textures chosen are reminiscent of the original train features, with spots of colour added through the use of bright cushions and bed linen.
The floor looks just like wood but is actually made up of HD Digital printed ‘painted wood’ tiles from NovaBell’s Eco Dream collection.
To book the carriage and pretend you’re in a Tintin adventure go over to Station Racour’s site.
