Happy Wednesday! Today’s post is totally tiled – from top to bottom and spaces in between – enjoy!
Starting at the base of the domed roof of a lovely church on Plaça de Castella, where tiles have been used in a diamond pattern, and some 70s delights on the floor of the shop where I buy my electric supplies, on Carrer del Carme. Cute, aren’t they?
In the lush courtyard of the Arxiu Històric de la Ciutat de Barcelona pretty flower tiles with profuse floral arrangements inset into them are a testimony of the skills of those who created these beauties centuries ago.
Left behind at the top of the walls of a torn down building, old bathroom tiles add a touch of smooth to a lot of rough, while some very old and simple, rustic flower tiles remain on the ledges of a couple of windows at the Picasso Museum to remind us of its former, more private use.
Gorgeous soap bubble colours shine on green tiles at the Caixa Forum, and a series of different, traditional Catalan tiles peek out from under a blind on Carrer Cervantes. Such a lovely surprise to find them used in this way! And each one is rather beautiful too.
To wrap up today’s post, art in tile form on a wall that is almost totally tiled. Hope you liked it!
