So, hope you’re having a wonderful summer! Last week I spent a few days in the prettiest Portuguese town on earth: Tavira. Firstly, here’s a link to the amazingly nice & stylishly renovated town house hotel we stayed in. It’s like a how-to on carefully renovating an old listed building, making it an interesting hotel. Anyhow, that’s not my point today. It’s about tiles, tiles and tiles! To warm you up, I’m sharing some lovely authentic Portuguese tiled exteriors.
Mind you, it is not those regionally popular public toilet tiles or the emergency room ideal we’re speaking about (blah!) It is way more charming. Pretty with an edge. Happy news related to this is the collaboration between Dutch company NLXL and Parisian boutique Merci: the wallpaper collection Brooklyn Tins!
Wallpapers designed to look like vintage tiles.
One colourway and version cooler than the other (there are many)
A fabulous new twist for the home decor Autumn of 2012. And you’ll of course ask where to buy – who wouldn’t - I say have a look at NLXL’s site.
