Tile tales indeed

There are some very lovely, and very graphic, tiles appearing on both walls and floors these days that get Auntie Vicky’s Unqualified  Approval (patent pending).  I’ve seen lots of what designer/media mogul Lynda Reeves called earlier this year “disrupted” floors, in which wood – sometimes with a purposefully jagged edge – abuts very busy tilework. I’ve also seen many  floors with complex Escher-like patterns that play with the mind. (See the floor in the piece I did on Tiffany Pratt’s kitchen.) And some of what I’ve seen on walls lately –  so very beautiful. Lots and lots of stunning Art Deco and Byzantine flavours on view, but I also adore floral and nature-inspired patterns, especially when they turn up in smaller spaces –  entryways, and bath, laundry and powder rooms. Here’s a gallery of tiles I think are simply  divine.  Works of art, no? Outside your budget? Mine too, probably. In a few weeks I’ll do a gallery of affordable go-to tiles. In the meantime, feast your eyes.
