Tile Envy: Out With the Old, In With the Bold!

To say we are obsessed with tiles is to put it lightly. What better way to customize, characterize, and make a home uniquely yours than with a beautiful wall of tiles that really pops?! The kitchen, the bathroom, and even the floors are all fair game when it comes to spicing up your style.

We simply cannot get enough of the bright and bold colors, the artistry of painted ceramic tiles, and the variety of shapes and sizes we are seeing. From penny circles to beautifully painted diamonds, to variations on the classic Moroccan look, we are in love! So, we scoured the internet to bring you some of our favorites!

Popham Designs might be our ultimate, featuring trendy patterns and colors for every occasion. Quirky and bold, stylish and sleek, and extravagantly artistic, regardless of your needs, these handmade tiles are hip to the best in design! A few of our top picks are shown below, all sourced from their Instagram account, @pophamdesign

We also are swooning over Marrakech Design, who tout themselves as “the specialist in cement tiles,” and we have to agree! They “carry a broad range of classic patterns and in addition have two major design collaborations with Scandinavian designers Claesson Koivisto Rune and Mats Theselius.” All of our favorites shown below are sourced from their Instagram, @marrakechdesign – HELLO INSPIRATION!

Finally, we want to give a shout-out to Mercury Mosaics, which features “Handmade Artisan Tile in the NE Minneapolis Arts District.” Right here in America, churning out beautiful pieces by hand. They “start with raw clay and we wedge, shape, extrude, glaze & fire it before we assemble the finished product by hand and ship it off to you!” Pretty cool. You can see details about their sculpting and painting process on their website, along with different shapes, colors, and inspiration galleries!

We are pretty sure that coffee shops from Silver Lake’s Intelligentsia all the way to the far East end of NELA could have their very own tile account just like the one above. Eastsiders unite with one obsessed: coffee! And, well, design! Inspiration is flourishing in every step of the community… you have have to walk outside and find it!

We would LOVE to see you latest projects and tile-spirations. Tag us @acmerealestate on Instagram with your best home looks, we can’t wait to see your style!
