There’s so considerably of Gaudi’s affect all around me but also classic architecture in this region. I’m sharing images on my Instagram stories as I travel the east coast of Spain.

In modern periods, they are produced from ceramic, cement, or clay. Just about every tile in mix with its neighbor produces a sample of geometric motifs and floral thrives on repeat. Paired with white stucco, iron hardware, vivid paint shades, or wooden textures, this outdated earth aesthetic is one particular that will under no circumstances go out of fashion.
Here’s a peek at some elevated appears to be working with Spanish tile, observe it can be daring and include an complete flooring or backsplash, or it can be applied in smaller installations on islands or staircase risers or fireplace surrounds to act as a refined nod to Mediterranean fashion.
