BLACK & WHITE TILE DELIGHT!

white living room with black & white moroccan tiles

Moroccan tiles again! I am obsessed. Love these all white living spaces with a bold black and white tile floor.

Maybe something like this would do the trick...

...or this?

Hmmm...food for thought.  I need a second home where I could try out this look throughout.  I think I would be very happy.

What do you think?  Do you like the idea of Moorish looking mosaic tiles throughout a house?  Let me know.

Happy Wednesday!

P.S.  Tomorrow I leave for NYC and the New York International Gift Fair.  I'll be showing the COCOCOZY collection beginning Sunday 1/27/13 at the Javits Center, booth #7919!  I've heard it is freezing in NYC.  Will be running around so much hopefully I won't notice?!>@#$!?

  2. Great roundup. We love the idea of using several of these tiles in one design- just like they do in Morocco. No fear when it comes to pattern.

  7. I love the idea of having those tiles throughout the house! The pattern is gorgeous. This would look so elegant in a bedroom with all white bedding. I came across this Peacock Alley coverlet that would work perfectly with the black and white tiles!

  8. I love Moroccan tile but it always manages to look very ethnic because it's always mixed in with so many competing colors. You've done a great number here by cleaning things up so that just the tile is the primary focus. Beautiful!

  9. Are you serious $750 a tile - that is such a rip off... it would be cheaper for you to fly to Morocco and get them made, then ship them home to the US. My Hubby is Moroccan and every time I show him things like this he's shocked at what people charge, in Morocco you'd be lucky to pay $1 a tile!! Love them though, very gorgeous and stylish...
