Hola from Barcelona! Right now I’m going for walks La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter and viewing all forms of wonderful Spanish tile. There is so substantially of Gaudi’s influence about me but also traditional architecture in this location. I’m sharing visuals on my Instagram stories as I travel the east coast of Spain.
In layout, what we refer to as “Spanish tile” references a extensive variety of tiles with roots in Spanish or Mexican historic symbolism. In modern periods, they are made from ceramic, cement, or clay. Every tile in blend with its neighbor produces a pattern of geometric motifs and floral flourishes on repeat. Paired with white stucco, iron components, dazzling paint colours, or wood textures, this previous entire world aesthetic is one that will never ever go out of type.
Here’s a peek at some elevated seems working with Spanish tile, detect it can be bold and address an whole floor or backsplash, or it can be used in more compact installations on islands or staircase risers or fireplace surrounds to act as a delicate nod to Mediterranean model.
If you really like the appear but really don’t want to commit to a long term tile installation, consider wallpaper, stencils, linens and tablescapes, to give you the appear in a less long term way.
