This bohemian yet elegant trend is making a comeback in the interior deign world and today I am going to share it with you!
First I am going to get into the history of ceramic tiles. Blue and white were brought to the historical kitchens and bathrooms of palaces in the 17th century. These materials were bought from China, and then built into tiles by Italian immigrant artisans. In addition to floral patterns and traditional geometric styles, many design schemes also included landscapes with windmills, plains and seas.
Through out the years a harmony grew between traditional and modern style ceramic tiles. This growth was achieved by the blue and white combination and the patterns of the past. The combination of modern decorations in the mix of design and geometry creates a contemporary version of this historical trend.
To create an artisanal look, Spanish ceramic tile manufacturers created wall tiles with hand-made details. These tiles blend perfectly with the blue hues to achieve a seamless vintage look. This makes the tiles unique and gives them a sense of elegance and refinement.
As you can see these beautiful tiles are timeless and can be a conversation piece. They have been around for centuries so why not try and add a classic piece of history to your home.
