Today I visited Mission Tile West; It was like a jewelry store for interior designers.

I have really been liking arabesque tiles, and Tabarka has an amazing collection with many different colors, including metallic which adds a special something. I love the three dimentional aspect of the arabesque one; arabesque alone is amazing, but this is stunning and unexpected, and I’m always looking to be surprised. The black swirling tile is a nice transition to the following two because it pulls from both the black and cream, whilst adding intrest with its pattern as well. The green tile attracts me because of its crackled jeweled effect. Lastly, I love mixing contrasting pieces, so thats why the black mirrored tile comes in; it adds a contrasting glam factor to the slightly rustic, ethnic arabesque tile
I imagine this as a kitchen backsplash, with the arabesque going up the entire wall behind a white farm sink.
