Floor tiles that will make you happy

I’ve never been a tile kind of girl, to me they scream cold and not very inviting or home-y. However a few days ago I came across an article in a magazine that took  my opinions about floor tiles to a whole new level and I actually fell in love with the variety of designs, colors, but also in love with the passion floor tiles can bring into a home. It can transform a place into a playful or dramatic one – the opportunities are endless and I firmly believe that floor tiles are yet to strike the world of interior design, just as wallpaper did. Here are some of the bold and colorful highlights:

What do you think about floor tiles? Do you love them or not and what design appeals to you the most, from the ones showed above?

    I usually go for wood floors myself, but I’d love to have some brightly colored tiles like these in my home. You don’t see much of this in the US. The style is really European (one of the reasons I like it so).

    The basement apartment of our new house is completely tiled. Unfortunately the tile isn’t nearly as fun as this! Plain, white, cheap tiles, in all four rooms including the two bedrooms! We’ll be living down there for a couple months while we renovate the upstairs, so I’m itching to lay down some area rugs. I agree with you: tile seems so cold!

    I could certainly get on board with any of these designs in an entryway or bathroom — as many of these are — but even though they’re fun and pretty, I’d still have a hard time putting them in a living room or bedroom.

    It’s nice, but honestly I wouldn’t put anything like this in my house… ~

    I’m pretty happy after seeing this! Bold colour and patterns on flooring is stunning.

    Those orange tiles in that orange room is my FAVE!!! Love how much warmer these spaces feel with a lot of color injected in them…Like little pieces of artwork everywhere you look! Great finds, thanks for sharing!
