EXCITING NEWS: We have a newly discovered resource for ceramic tiles: American Universal Corp. I love their website — it’s easy to make your own octagon-and-dot combinations, for example. Like my peach, raspberry and grey floor tile combination above — what do you think? There are many colors, many sizes and styles, and the prices don’t look bad at all. Note: Consult with professionals when specifying tile — some tile may not be specified for flooring, for example. There are 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s options galore. Have fun at American Universal’s website ogling the whole lineup.
