Last week I posted about using small bits of tile for an understated and focused point of interest. Today, it's the total opposite. We're talking huge swaths of tile floors (and sometimes walls) that dominate with color and pattern. They're bold, beautiful and a firm hip check to anything else demanding attention.

And some more rooms where tile adds crucial color:
1. Crazy great patchwork ceramic tile from Purpura via Present and Correct.
2. Traditional Moroccan cement tiles, from Popham Design.
3. Studio Toogood chose sporadic color in this modern, ceramic take on parquet floors.
4. It would be oh too easy to get lost in this deep sea blue floor, from Claesson Koivisto Rune.
5. Graphic Kismet tiles in a kitchen, as photographed by Laure Joliet.
