Here is yet another kitchen I adore. The three things I love most about this kitchen (in order) are the arabesque black tiles (I more than love these), the large windows and the fresh cabinetry. I also really like the contrast between the black and white. However, I would have chosen different chairs and perhaps a more playful fabric on the cushions.

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.

I love everything about this Scandinavian kitchen. The beautiful tiles that cover the entire wall and how perfectly they tie together the tall blue ceilings and the green cabinetry. The blue tiles that make a beautiful focal point. The rustic floors. The large white farm sink. The beautiful star like chandelier.

I have a love for wood floors; the problem is that wood is not the most practical for wet areas, such as a bathroom, so when I came across Fondovalle’s Ironwood tile collection it was happiness. It was like discovering Yogurt Land all over again, the satisfaction of ice-cream but the benefit of frozen yogurt being healthier. The satisfaction of wood, but the benefit of tile being more water resistant.
