We talk a lot about filling a home with beautiful things, but if we think of the home itself as a living entity, we ought to also take into consideration the strength of its bones, the subtleties of its lines, and the clarity of its skin.

That being said, a great set of tiles can truly transcend a home from a mere living space into a memorable and unique spot in the world.  Whether it’s an inventive grouping of dissimilar tiles into a striped wall accent or a long, sleek sheet of shimmering glass in abstract shapes making up an overall pattern, a well-considered series of tilework can easily aspire to be considered as art in and of itself.
