This morning, I showed a vintage bathroom featuring small, ceramic, mosaic tiles in pink and metallic gold — and promised to reveal my source in this next blog post. Yes, this was too easy, and longtime readers would surely have guessed: You can still get small, ceramic color-and-metallic mosaics similar to the bathroom that Paul spotted — new old stock from the 1960s! — with metallic finish! — from Chippy at World of Tile. These tiles are mind-blowing gorgeous.
One of the reason I neeeeeeeed to get a Sarasota beach bungalow is so I can use Chippy’s beauties in my kitchen or bathroom. If any are left. Boo hoo, I want it all right NOW:
I don’t think these tiles come cheap. But, they are rare — vintage — the real deal. And, I did some googling and could not find anything like them. Even if I did find them — likely from very high-end tile makers — I bet they’d still cost more than what Chippy is asking.
