Tile Talk: Unique Patterns & What’s Hot Now

Tile is one of my favorite materials to work with. Today’s tile has become even more decorative and sophisticated. It is expected to make a big splash in small spaces. There are so many trends to cover plus a few unique patterns that I stumbled on along the way.  A great local resource in NJ is Garden Statel Tile. They carry Casa Mood, Casa Italia, Dune (an Australian line) and many other cutting edge brands that are not at the well known stores like Meditterean, County Floors and Artisitc Tile. Take a look:
