I’m looking for green 1950’s tile. Do you have a contact for Olympia Tile? — Karen

Bad news, friends, but the Maple Leaf tile sold by Olympia Tile has been discontinued. As you will recall, I really liked some of their colors. I am told, that we may still be able to get the tile until all inventories are depleted. Meanwhile – I definitely recommend you try B&W Tile, and if you are in the U.K, this British Tile. I don’t know if they export to the U.S. but I sure do love their colors right down to the PINK and the MINT, which is perfect vintage 50s 60s! Hey Fiona and Clare – you have better sources for tile than we do!

Finally, there are some good retro colors now available from Dal-Tile and American Olean, and possibly U.S. Ceramic (I do not have their latest board.) Read the Tile Category for all updates on this most critical subject!

    oooh I commented on a another article about this tile. If anyone wants this I am very happy to order and ship to you.

    I spend my visits to the states in despair at all the things I want but can’t bring home and I’d be very happy to help anyone. Not sure how costly it would be but I’m happy to help if I can!

    Fiona in the UK!

        No, Patricia, I do not sell on this site. I spotlight retailers offering products that could be appropriate for mid mod remodels. See my Category: Bathrooms / Tile for a variety of retailers who may have the tile you need. Note: Olympia no longer selling Maple Leaf tile.

    If you still need, EBAY right now has some bottle green & jade listings.

    I thnk all listings are “buy it now”. “Rainsplitter” is the lister. Has some medium brown & dark black as well.

    I just bought the “oatmeal” to fill in some holes.

    We have begun the move into my in-law’s house to help care for them. The upstairs bathroom is pink and aqua (maybe mint) floor and wall tiles with pink sink/toilet and aqua tub. Any suggestions on what color to paint the upper wall and what color curtain/towels to use?

    And just when you think it couldn’t be worse…the downstairs full bath is burgundy and gray floor/wall tiles with all burgundy fixtures–any ideas for that one?

    Everything is in excellent condition so we just can’t justify a remodel, and it brings back great memories of my grandparents’ homes.

    Thanks

    I ordered samples from Nemo tile in NY. The SO523 matched the pistachio green in my 1950s bathroom perfectly. I may not need it, like I thought for our plumbing project but great to know.

    Hello,

    Does anyone know where I can get yellow 4 x 4 ceramic tiles? I also need the bull-nose trim tiles as well,

    Cheers,
    Chris
