Full disclosure. The main reason why I hope to buy my own how someday is because I want to install some fabulous-friggen tiles in the bathroom and kitchen. Now, after visiting Istanbul and the Topkapi Palace, I wanna buy a house and put tiles, not just in the kitchen and bathroom but EVERYWHERE. Pattern after pattern, motif after motif, the Turkish tiles have got me so inspired. They make painted walls seem like quite a bore, no?
Some of the tiles pictured here are Iznik. Iznik pottery and tiles were produced between the 15th-17th centuries and were influenced by the Chinese blue and white porcelain. The bolder reds and oranges were added later.
If you’re feeling inspired and are fortunate enough to have a home where adding tiles is an option, I recommend Filmore Clark tiles. The tiles may not have been made for the harems of Ottoman sultans, but they are stunning none-the-less. My favorites are the Oasis Bath and the Moroccan Gold.
Hope you all are having a great week!
