These little works of art grace the walls and halls of some of the oldest buildings in history and have been a design staple for centuries. Today, tiles can instantly bring character, texture and whole lot of personality to your space, no matter how big or small. Take a look at a few of our favorite styles and inspiration photos that range from classic to quirky.
Solid & Neutral Tiles
For a textured backdrop, we love a good classic, neutral tile. Whether they're in a bathroom or kitchen, they can create a polished look while allowing your accessories, furniture and decor to shine. Plus, if you ever want to change out your accessories, these neutrals won't limit you when choosing a new color palette. A little bit of contrast is key here to make these pop (unless you prefer sleek and monochromatic, another great look). For a really fun and unexpected feature, we are really digging the blend of tile and wood flooring as a transition between rooms.
Bold & Patterned Tiles
For a more dramatic look, we are all about incorporating patterned tiles. It's the perfect way to freshen up your space and give it a ton of personality. Most of these options are hand-painted or handcrafted which makes them all the more charming. We envision these stealing the show as bathroom flooring, the face of a fireplace surround, or an unexpected feature in a staircase or outdoor bar. We think a pop of pattern is always a good idea and can be really successful when paired with solid accessories, decor, or furniture. It's all about balance. Stick to a color story, mix in neutral pieces to balance out the space, and a little contrast can go a long way. No need to save this drama for your momma.
