The beauty in some tiles is undeniable. Those found on travels are not only visually stunning but also brimming with memories, making them ideal to custom frame and turn into wall décor.
I love the intricacy of tile. The colour; the craftsmanship, all things that I want to surround myself with! There are so many different ways to design a display for your tile(s). To get you started, examine your tile and think about how you would like it showcased. Are there details in the tile that you’d like to hide or accentuate? Next up is to consider the room you would like to hang your tile art in. What style, colour and mood is the space? Is the wall going to house multiple pieces or will your tile art hang alone? In this blog we’re going to look at 4 beautiful options to hopefully inspire you to turn tile into art as well.
These hand-painted tiles are from Italy. We decided to mount these tiles to a board and then treat it like a canvas. We added a white floater frame and to cap the piece off, we couldn’t help but to choose an Italian moulding by Roma in maple.
Antique tiles are amazing and those brought back from Portugal are just beyond! The geographic design of these tiles stand strongly alone and needed only a simple black floater frame to finish them off. We left the edges of the tiles exposed that add to the overall beauty and framed all three tiles in the same way for an instant gallery effect that keeps the focus on these incredible tiles.
These hand-made tiles are also from Portugal. Originally the outer corners were supposed to be arranged to meet in the middle to form the final look, but due to the nature of this type of tile, some of the painted lines didn’t line up. Thankfully tiles like these can be moved around to change the arrangement and we think the result is gorgeous! We decided to keep the frame design simple but select a substantial moulding by Larson-Juhl.
This tiny tile from Spain becomes the center of attention with the extra large surround mat. And this vibrant moulding plays on the luster of this little gem.
