My Love Affair With Turkish Tiles

I have always loved decorative tiles
and I am in tile heaven here in Turkey.

Turkey has had a long history in
decorative ceramics and you still
find artists painting tiles by hand.

Here are a few examples I have seen
as I visit places in Istanbul.

I love the way they interpret florals.

I adore their use of color.

I design my life in this color scheme.

For my home, I think doing an entire
room in tile might be a bit much...

But if you should ever make it to
Istanbul, don't miss the beautiful
tiles in the Blue Mosque.

I wonder, is this where all of the ceramic
items that tourists chip or drop in the
bazaar end up?
