While the North American market has historically had a reputation for favoring neutral colors when it comes to their home designs, decorative and glass tile products are now being utilized in more residential spaces to add a “pop” of color and point of interest to a living space. Shimmering glass, textured porcelain and decorative custom prints are being employed for a range of applications — from backsplashes to entire accent walls. The following are just a few of the numerous decorative and glass tile lines that are available.

“Egypt” by Alttoglass

In its “Egypt” Collection of mosaic glass tile, Tile of Spain-branded manufacturer offers beautiful blends of colors suggesting patterns of woven fabric from an earlier time. Colors include: Osiris (shown), Amon, Anubis and Apis.

“Origins Glass” by Crossville

“Origins Glass” mosaics by Crossville is a new take on Old-World craftsmanship.

Designed by Giugiaro Design and made of 95% recycled glass, the “Crono” Collection by Italian tile manufacturer Mosaico+ combines 3D, high-end technology and industrial design. The three-dimensional chips are made of sintered glass (obtained by grinding and compressing recycled glass) that has sophisticated textures with ever-changing effects caused by light refraction on the variously angled surfaces of the mosaic. It features two decors: “Pulsar” (sleek and round that creates trajectories and soft weaves reminiscent of textiles) and “Nova” (whose faceted geometry suggests different planes, depending on your perspective). Crono is available in 10 solid colors. The patterns and geometries are completely customizable.

“Fiona Jewel Glass Mosaic”
by New Ravenna Mosaics

Inspired by inlay techniques of 17th century India, Sara Baldwin has created a handmade series for New Ravenna Mosaics. Using organic and delicate designs, her mosaics make you think spring when you see the fresh, vibrant colors, and the vine designs which bring to mind growth and renewal. Hints of South Asia’s traditional bone and mother of pearl accents come through with Baldwin’s use of brilliant jewel glass and natural stone. Add a touch of spring and an exotic flare to your tiling project. Stone tiles are great for floors and walls, indoors and outdoors, and the jewel glass mosaics make a beautiful addition to any interior vertical installation.
