As I face the ongoing wet plaster disaster caused by last week's frozen drainpipe, I found myself dreaming of rooms tiled from floor to ceiling in glorious waterproof perfection. Though those dreams are unlikely to come true, I did find and fall in love with these beautiful multicolored tiles from Italy.
The Chanson d'Amour series from Ceramica VIVA is modern and magnificent. The website references a cross between laquered Chinese boxes and 1920s Art Deco designs; I love the scale of these fabulous tiles and the way the subtle tone on tone designs add elegance to the simplest spaces. Or course, the chance that any of these beautiful designs will end up in my bedroom is slim to none, but a girl can dream.
