Decorative tiles - London

When I was in London recently I took these photo's in Richmond of gorgeous old blue and white tiles decorating shop fronts. It's lovely to see such beautiful decoration and detail that went into older style architecture - and in such contrast to todays modern (and rather plain) style. Although they are old tiles I think they provide great inspiration for modern pattern creation.


  1. six degrees used some turkish tiles on the facade of a building in the city square, swanston street - it gives the building life!

  2. Ooh how lovely - I'll have to keep my eyes peeled and check them out next time I'm in the city. Thanks! :-)
