I have yet another weakness I have so-far not confessed in many years of blogging.
I love tile. I look forward to going to Home Depot just so I can stand in the tile aisle and gaze upon what's available. I don't dare go into a dedicated tile store for fear of never leaving.
On the most recent Sunday Morning episode, they did a whole segment on azulejo Portuguese tile. OMG! It was wonderful!
My favorite is Victorian tile. But I have a bunch of tiles from Mexico that we bought when we were in the Southwest.
Hmm...I have a lot more tile than I thought.
But it's not practical to really collect it. So why not have a virtual collection? So Monday I started a Pinterest board for tile. So far, I don't have many. The one to the left is one I found online. Can you imainge an entire wall of that tile? It might be a bit much, but boy would it be pretty (and very busy). I guess that's why I like accent tiles in a sea of more mundane ones. That makes them stick out more, and I think they'd be better appreciated.
Here are a few more I found.
Isn't that gorgeous? (Is it apparent that I'm a fan of Art Nouveau?)
A little late for Chinese New Year (and it's the year of the Horse), but stunning.
So, what do you think about decorative tile?
