I heart encaustic tile
Okay, usually the "I heart" expression annoys me, but today l like it. I have had this recent obsession with encaustic tile. I love the matte-ness of it and some of the patterns it comes in are lovely. Some look Victorian while others are more Mediterranean, there are even more modern patterns. I would love to use this in our mudroom once we get there since that's probably the only room we'd be able to afford to put them in. At 4'-6" x 4'-6" I'm not sure if it even qualifies as a room. Our house was built around 1915 so it's a little late for Victorian style, but I think I could pull it off, especially if the rest of the room was kept pretty simple. I'm thinking beadboard walls, a bunch of hooks and a bench - oh, and a stained glass window I got at a yard sale.
Here are a few more from Villa Lagoon Tile.
So what do you think? Too much for a small mudroom in a small bungalow? Just right?
