Talavera Tiles – Charming Hand-Painted Designs

Antique-design campesino tilesThis is just a sampling of all the various designs and patterns of Talavera tiles that our property has throughout the main house, casita, and exterior areas.  They are all hand-painted designs on clay tiles; all the imperfections add to their beauty!

It’s difficult to pick out my favorite tiles, but these are right up there!

fanciful bird tilesThese interesting tiles come from antique designs.  They form a shelf on the beehive fireplace in the living room.

A close contender for my favorites are these fanciful bird tiles that we installed around the curved opening of the beehive fireplace in the master bedroom.

4-tile pattern tiles in kitchenThese tiles we used in the kitchen form a pattern with four tiles, and we installed them on a diagonal.  But they also work well on their own, which is shown on the backsplash.kitchen backsplash tiles

Running Tiles Around Kitchen CabinetsAlso in the kitchen are these continuous-pattern tiles that work well on the supports around the lower cabinets.

Bathroom geometric, bird and fish tilesIn our master bathroom we used a geometric design tile with colorful accents, Fish and Bird Tiles in Master Bath Showerand with bird and fish tiles in the large shower area and around the sink area.
