Hola from Barcelona! Currently I’m going for walks La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter and looking at all forms of attractive Spanish tile. There is so a lot of Gaudi’s impact about me but also vintage architecture in this region. I’m sharing pictures on my Instagram tales as I journey the east coastline of Spain.
In design, what we refer to as “Spanish tile” references a wide variety of tiles with roots in Spanish or Mexican historic symbolism. In modern occasions, they are produced from ceramic, cement, or clay. Every tile in mixture with its neighbor creates a sample of geometric motifs and floral flourishes on repeat. Paired with white stucco, iron components, brilliant paint shades, or wooden textures, this aged earth aesthetic is just one that will in no way go out of design.
Here’s a peek at some elevated looks using Spanish tile, discover it can be bold and protect an whole ground or backsplash, or it can be utilised in smaller installations on islands or staircase risers or hearth surrounds to act as a refined nod to Mediterranean design.
If you enjoy the seem but do not want to dedicate to a permanent tile set up, take into consideration wallpaper, stencils, linens and tablescapes, to give you the appear in a a lot less long term way.
