Thinking Tiles...



I'm in love with tiles - particularly the patterned Moroccan kind or those from Argentina. Like wallpaper, they thread an artistic expression into the architecture and fabric of a home - and in these days of fairly neutral backdrops - it's a wonderful relief to come across a space that uses pattern in this way. I am waiting with baited breath to use the antique tiles from Argentina that I am hoarding in my garden shed. One day, I imagine them beautifully decorating the floor of a glass conservatory - or perhaps a wall in a bathroom, such as this one.

Gorgeous tiles, Shannon. I am hankering after some greek tiles from Fired Earth at the moment. I'd love them as a splashback by the kitchen sink for a pop of azure blue against white.
