Lately we've been seeing a trend towards more textured, storied finishes in the home, things that look like they've been there for years, whether made from reclaimed materials or new materials made to look old. Terracotta tile, with its beautiful texture and intriguing color variation, fits the bill perfectly. And it comes in all kind of finishes and shapes — not just earth tones and squares or hexagons. Here are 24 of our favorite terracotta tiles.
