Tile eye candy - websites for colorful Mexican/Moroccan tile

Posted by zeebee (My Page) on

I'm fast-forwarding to the backsplash in my kitchen planning, as I'm bored with appliances, cabinet measurements, blah blah blah. (To be fair, most of those decisions are 90% made and I'm looking for my next obsession). My kitchen palette is pretty neutral and I'm looking for some fun colorful tiles for the range and beverage areas. Big pattern or big color is just what I want - when I google either Mexican or Moroccan tile, I'm all "oh yeah."

Any ideas for sites with colorful tile inspiration?

Hi zeebee. I was looking at tiles on Houzz today and saw this tile, and noted how many liked it (I need something less busy). Your post reminded me of it though:

Cuban Heritage Design 110 2B 8" x 8" Handmade Cement Tile by Avente Tile.

We bought tile from here for our front walkway and entry. It's perfect and was packed so well that nothing broke.

Fireclay has a lot of traditional Mexican style tile. Also look for Ken Mason tiles. I love the cement tiles as well but you need a skilled tile person who has done cement tiles before and knows how to do it vertically. The tile may also stain and you need to seal (which may change the color) and add a sheen.

There are a number of tile makers in Malibu, CA. Just google California Malibu tile.

Somebody recently posted a link in another thread to Mosaic House, which has Moroccan tile. I think their stuff is gorgeous.

I've never bought from these people, but this looks just like the fauxroccan tile I got on ebay about 2 years ago. It's fun!
