Tiles...this post is about tiles

Spanish tiles, stone tiles, pressed tiles, extruded tiles, ceramic tiles, so many tiles! Luckily, I'm not a home owner or I might be completely overwhelmed with the many options of tiles (among other things). Honestly, tiles are something I've long ignored, but not these option...I mean, how could you ignore these?
If you're looking for a bold look, tiles can certainly make a strong statement.

Tiles need not be boldly colored to make a statement.

I enjoy the strong contrast between dark wall and lighter tile. This reminds of me of mint chocolate chip ice cream (one of my favorites!)

Now this, I haven't seen before.

Is that orange and lime I spy? Ok, maybe not lime, but minty green for sure.

For the tile minimalist, how about a simple stone back splash?

Loving pink and black perhaps? This tile reminds me of a nice game of Tetris.

I adore the peacock imagery in this image composed of tiles.

Smaller monochromatic tiles are visually interesting but not overwhelming.

There's just something about a well designed bathroom that makes me very happy. Bathrooms shouldn't be neglected, they should be just as important (come on, personal stuff happens in there) as every other part of your home, right?

Yes, bathrooms are so important! The first and last are awesome and that orange sink base is totally unique - I've never see one like that before. And it's orange! Of course I love that. You and I need to start an orange fan club . . .

I like the "chocolate chips" the most ;) what a great selection and a cource of inspiration ...where were you, a few month back, when I had to redo our new nest - bathroom ???

Iva said...

I love mosaic titles! I love the brown and green contrast, I always think brown with another bright, rich color is always such a great combination. I like the faces above the sink, such tiny pieces fused together to create fun designs! I think the peacock above the tub is a great piece as well.

Great post!! :)

LENORENEVERMORE said...

As much as I adore colorsss...for me bath room/kitchen got to be more 'zen' like...2 colors max! ~XO*

Elizabeth Marie said...

I am really loving the orange and lime/mine one! I don't know if I would get sick of it though...

Ohhh good luck if you do move...I'm stuck in Cali until I get a job, because while I am adventurous, I'm not THAT adventurous haha! XO

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

Haven and Home said...

It is amazing how many choices are out there! The faces crack me up!

naphtali said...

Love all the tiles. There really are so many options out there!

flynn said...

in morocco all the houses have patterned tile half-way up the wall in every room. it's so chic and structured looking, and it actually makes your house feel physically cooler, too.

i loooooove the mint and orange. that's a singing-into-your-hairbrush-at-the-mirror bathroom if i ever saw one.

wunderbug said...

oh, wow - i love that cluster of green tiles - it reminds me of the clustered decorative plates that i've been seeing lately. instead of being old-lady, they become an awesome art installation.

i ALSO love love those red/pink/orange lil tiles in the last pic!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

I'm loving the last one. It reminds me of one I was in, in Amsterdam, only in different shades of aqua blue/green.

I'd love to tile my entire bathroom - maybe one day.:)

xoxo

Quixsa said...

An ode to a wonderful creation. Tiles create such wonderful mosaics :0)
