Once Upon a Tile

Tiles have been around for over 4,000 years and can be found in almost every continent in the world.  Here are some of my favorites. If you look closely enough, you'll find beautiful new and vintage tile wherever you go!

This one was found in front of a camera/stationary store in Assisi, Italy

The tile in front of this door in Chile glams up the concrete

Royal Palace in Morocco - breathtaking wouldn't you say?

My favorite tile color (Blue) in subway at my 2nd favorite city in the world - NYC!

My homies will recogonize this tile work from Swan's Market in downtown Oakland.

Saw this on display and I really liked the simplicty - Art Deco Dragonfly

Waves in Tile = Puerto Vallarta

In India, this tile was posted on wall of house built with funding from program dedicated to Indira Ghandi

Though no where as beautiful as the others, even the Space Shuttle has tiles!

Have you seen any tiles today?
