We’re daydreaming and letting our minds travel to the furthest corners of the world to capture color, shape and pattern design inspiration. From the intricate details of exotic textiles to the vibrant colors of lively gardens and landscapes, you can’t go wrong with where you decide to draw your own inspiration. Our wide variety of tile shape and color options allow you to achieve any style you desire! Let’s explore some of our favorite designs inspired by different areas around the world.
Road to Morocco
Don’t get us started when it comes to Morocco and how it inspires our handmade tile… with four different tile shapes in our Moroccan Tile line, this is one of our favorite areas of the world to get tile ideas from! We are drawn to the intricate patterns that have been used in architecture and design for centuries. Our Moroccan Fish Scales are currently our most popular shape and can be used in a variety of ways! They can cover a wall with one color of glaze and still be full interest and variation, colors can be used in a gradient from dark to light, or the colors can be mixed randomly to create a full effect. These shapes can also be arranged in the “wave” layout as you can see above.

Moroccan Circles are a gorgeous tile shape that is very classic for Moroccan design! They look amazing with vibrant colors, cool tones, or neutral whites. Here you see the shapes in a deep burgundy color that allows the shape of the tile to take all the attention.

Using two colors for this shape creates radial dimension and contrast. The pattern pops and looks exquisite even in white and neutral tones. The pattern and colors create a design that is elegant but homey enough for a bedroom that you would never want to leave!

The Moroccan Cross shape goes perfectly with Swiss cross designs. The all-white look is perfect with white grout for a subtle backsplash, or use a medium grey grout to set the contrast for the shapes to be seen strongly!
