Hola from Barcelona! These days I’m going for walks La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter and observing all kinds of stunning Spanish tile. There is so considerably of Gaudi’s impact all around me but also traditional architecture in this location. I’m sharing photos on my Instagram stories as I journey the east coastline of Spain.
In layout, what we refer to as “Spanish tile” references a broad array of tiles with roots in Spanish or Mexican historic symbolism. In modern moments, they are created from ceramic, cement, or clay. Each and every tile in mix with its neighbor creates a pattern of geometric motifs and floral flourishes on repeat. Paired with white stucco, iron hardware, vibrant paint colors, or wood textures, this aged planet aesthetic is a person that will in no way go out of model.
Here’s a peek at some elevated appears to be working with Spanish tile, see it can be daring and deal with an total floor or backsplash, or it can be applied in scaled-down installations on islands or staircase risers or hearth surrounds to act as a refined nod to Mediterranean type.
If you appreciate the glimpse but never want to dedicate to a long term tile installation, look at wallpaper, stencils, linens and tablescapes, to give you the search in a fewer long term way.
