Geometric designs have bedazzled our eyes for centuries. Found on fabrics, tapestries and flooring throughout history - each culture's influence on historical decorative designs makes an indelible mark on the succeeding generation's interior arts. Not lost on the English, 14th century medieval castles and churches are a hall mark for decorative tiles - namely encaustic tiles. Floor and wall coverings laid with patterned tiles served two purposes - to cover mud floors and to show wealth. One sees these designs repeated endlessly today. Emmi Micallef, being drawn to these historic and transcendent motifs, has hand painted a wall tile collection inspired by museum pieces of 14th century England. She chose a warm grey glaze color that works beautifully with reclaimed French limestone flooring, French oak wood flooring and reclaimed French terra cotta tiles. As a kitchen backsplash, fireplace surround, powder room or master bath, the geometric soft patterns heighten the artistry and historic authenticity of an interior.
