Moroccan Tile

We've never been to Morocco, but all the photos of gorgeous tile covering walls, floors, and fountains is enough to make us want to pack up and go there... Imagine living in an actual house covered in this stuff. Besides being beautiful, Moroccan tiles are utilitarian. They're easy to clean, while the intricate patterns hide flaws or dirt well. Tile is structurally strong and long-lasting, and it naturally insulates a space, keeping surfaces cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This last characteristic is especially important in North Africa, where anything that protects against heat is a good thing.
