Inspiring midcentury floor tiles!

Remember when we were little, homes used to have those colourful midcentury patterned floor tiles? I used to hate those tiles back then, thinking they were quite hidious. I remember that in my bedroom I used to have a brown with white patterned tiles and orange walls! Yikes! But that was in the seventies and early eighties. Later on my parents remodeled the house and put elegant white tiles with a fine grey marble pattern throughout the entire house. And my room was painted a soft girly pink with lilac accents, thank God. I recently came across some pictures where I noticed those midcentury patterned floor tiles again and I do have to say I now kinda like it, a lot. It gives a space so much character. Maybe it's because it makes me feel nostalgic, but I think these floor tiles need to have a come back, what do you think?

  1. This is a good common sense Blog. Very helpful to one who is just finding the resources about this part. It will certainly help educate me.

  2. Hm, it might be more than nostalgia. Those floor tiles look good. They do grow on you after a while, and they have a very charming pattern.
