There are so many ways to bring cultural elements into a home, and tile is one of my favorites. With a history spanning centuries, buildings covered in ceramic tiles can be found everywhere in the ancient world, from Portugal to Morocco. Spanish tile, Italian tile – many countries have a long-time tradition of using tiles in the home, making this a truly a global element to bring into interiors today. In modern interiors, tile can make a beautiful statement, particularly when neutral tiles are used to create a patchwork design. Lay out a bathroom floor in a mix of your favorite black and white patterns. Update a living room floor with a mix of tiles in shades of gray. And add golden tile to your living rooms walls for a glamorous focal point.
