Mosaic Tile

I really love the use of modern mosaic tile. Tile is such a wonderful medium with which to add an original and timeless design to an interior. I find its texture, sense of history and artwork irresistible.

In my mind, it is most striking in a spare setting like the one shown left, which is a Bisazza design. I also love the simple lines, and the muted and subtle colour tones of the floor mosaic shown on the right.

Photo Source

I recently came across Gaile Guevara's blog, which has a huge and well chosen collection of interior design photos that have become a source of inspiration in my recent project. Although it has not been updated in a while, it is still a great site to go to for a quick browse through some impressive modern interiors. As fate would have it, she is also from my home town, Vancouver, B.C.

I have been sourcing blinds for my current project and came upon these gorgeous paper yarn blinds from Finland.

Inspired by Finnish raw materials, Woodnotes was founded by Ritva and Mikko Puotila in 1987. Their large collection of products are made from spun paper yarn often blended with cotton.

The effect is a light, delicate and durable texture that lends a very subtle touch to contemporary window treatments.
