Design Trend: zellige tile

Goodbye subway tile, hello Zellige tile?

Although not exactly trendy. These tiles have been made the exactly same way in Morocco for over 1,000 years. These beautiful handcrafted tiles are being touted as the alternative to the subway tile crowd. Zellige tiles are perfectly imperfect tiles. They have the wabi sabi and hygge groupies going wild for them. It’s the cracking, pitting, and the variations in each tile that make them so special.

Zellige tiles come in many rich, vibrant colors. Yet the neutrals can be absolutely gorgeous because of the texture, pattern, and range of shades of these tiles. No two are alike and that is what makes these so beautiful. You can use them as a backsplash, on a countertop, or walls of your shower.


If you like these looks, you just might like this, or this, or this. Or how about these sconces, like this, this, even this. Other bathroom accessories we like are this, this, and this too.
