The Versatility of Tiles

Its sizzling hot here is Cornwall today, lovely and very much holiday weather. It does make my toes appreciate a good, cool, slab of tile underfoot. In my kitchen its grey slate but today I am exploring geometric beauty and rich exotic shades. Tiles to me have a far away feel. I loved the ones I came across in India and Morocco. So much detail on something we just walk over.

This is how I think the universe would look if tiled. The deep inky blue is carved up with mesmerising shapes.

Lovely layered tiles just like mermaid scales. Every shade is beautiful in its own right.

I love this depth of green, I could just dive in. Stylised blooms fit together in pleasing shades of turquoise and teal.

An easy way to add some glam to the bathroom, these large white tiles shimmer with an intricate gold pattern. Love the fittings too!

Here we have the same interlocking hexagon design but first in forest green, white and black while the second is more subtle using a blush pink, a slight grey and deep blue. I love the effect.
