home: trend [ mosaic ]
This season’s trend for mosaics shows how patterns of mosaic tiles or patterns in the style of, are not just for holiday destinations or even a bathroom – that can work in any room as a feature or pattern on the wall or homeware.
Blending art, architecture and design, mosaic tile is one of the oldest forms of wall and floor covering. Using the tiny squares known as tesserae, Ancient Greeks and Romans created detailed stories and intricate geometric patterns, and mosaic art embellishes ceilings, walls and floors from Byzantium to Barcelona // SeattleTimes.com
Using mosaics on walls can make a bold design statement and an incredible alternative to wallpaper or paint for a feature wall. You could use block colour or patterned design depending on the colour scheme and style of room. It could be used on a chimney breast, kitchen wall or even as an alternative way of creating a headboard for a bed.
Not looking to be so bold? There’s lots of accessories to bring a little of the trend into the home – on ceramics and fabrics.
