Artisanal tradition is tightly woven into the culture of modern Sicily. When it comes to the Marsala Bianco Country Floors patterned ceramic wall tiles, we have opted to pay homage to 19th and 20th-century Italian interior design in particular.
The Inspiration Behind The Marsala Bianco Tile
The inspiration for Marsala Bianco comes from the lively and colorful designs that took root in this part of history. It exhibits a command of pattern that would have been far too outlandish for many other tastes during these periods. When it comes to our love of patterned tiling we just could not say no to these beautiful mosaics. Thus we have created six bespoke and decorative designs named after the Sicilian villages that pioneered this pattern style.
Subtle undertones from a wide variety of influences have made a clear impact on Sicilian patterns and ceramic interior tiling patterns in general. An undeniable sense of exoticism is present in these Sicilian-inspired wall tiles. Many nations such as the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Ostrogoths, the Muslims, the Normans, and others tried to colonize this area. Thanks to these influences that are so much a part of the history of this wonderful island. The Marsala Bianco tiles favor bold patterns and can hold their own in a range of styles.
Where To Use The Marsala Bianco Collection in the Home
While the maximalism of Sicilian patterning is truly something to behold, the Country Floors Marsala Bianco Ceramic Tile Collection is for those who love traditional patterning, but prefer to use it in an updated, more subtle fashion. Marsala Bianco’s patterned ceramic wall tiles bring a Mediterranean feeling of warmth and coziness. The golden and gray elements are downplayed in favor of a pristine white backdrop and gorgeously intricate tile patterning. These elements provide something to complement all interiors, however wooden or natural stone flooring is the perfect pairing.
The tile patterns, more subtle than their Sicilian counterparts, can hold their own in smaller installations, surrounding fireplaces, or as a backsplash. Glossy ceramic is one of the best bases to showcase intricate tiling patterns. And the long-lasting durability of the Country Floors tiles will offer timeless beauty to interiors, alongside a rich history of superior Sicilian interior design even in kitchens and wet rooms. The feel of the Marsala Bianco patterned tile is traditional yet understated, with a mix of warm and cool tones. This means natural furniture and fixtures within a room will look best with these patterned ceramic wall tiles.
Milazzo – Utilizing bold swirls in the place of clunky straightened lines. This tile generates a flow in and of itself that makes the tiles a pleasure to perceive, whether individually or as part of the larger pattern, evoking floral imagery set in warm neutrals.
Catania – Creating a perfect diamond quartet. We incorporate these tiles a distinctly regal variety of shapes so bold in their placement that the grays and browns that work so well in other tiles are set against each other in larger formations to create an undeniably bold mosaic.
Tropani – The bold straight line work that is the most noticeable part of this tile. We expertly coupled the tile with smaller, daintier accents, and surprisingly bold interior shapes. These shapes take full advantage of the darker tones within the pattern to draw the eye.
Rogusa – Inspired by traditional elements of Baroque architecture so common in Sicilia. This pattern incorporates dense artwork framed in heavy gray line-work. We perfectly balanced the tile between geometric tessellation and rich golden flourishes.
Palermo – This tile takes advantage of blacks and grays far more than golden tones. However, the incredible floral shapes ringed with irregular lines make it very hard to miss the extra color. This tile creates by far the most unique mosaic when you applied it to a wall.
