Bring the Outdoors in with Zellige Tiles

Have you ever set foot in a space adorned with Zellige tiles? It’s like stepping barefoot onto a sun-drenched Moroccan courtyard. Their unique imperfections and handcrafted nature create a raw and rustic aesthetic, achieving a natural, organic vibe that invites warmth and connection to the earth.

The irregular edges, divots, and rough surface of Zellige tiles mimic the variations found in real brick, giving them an authentic, weathered look. This tactile quality adds texture and depth to any space, creating visual interest and a sense of character.

Wondering how these tiles achieve such an organic feel? It’s all in the craftsmanship (of both the artisan and the homeowner). To show you what we mean, here are some of our favorite Zellige tile installations courtesy of our customers.

We love this kitchen transformation that features our Natural White Zellige tiles as a backsplash. The light and neutral color of the tiles, combined with the dark cabinetry (and gold accents), adds texture and warmth to the space.

In this kitchen renovation, interior decor expert and realtor Wendy Wiggins used our Natural White Zellige tiles to create an old-world charm. The white cabinets (Benjamin Moore Pale Oak) and gold hardware complement the zellige tiles, creating a seamless aesthetic that transports you to a different time and place.

Look at that gorgeous gas range against the textured backdrop of the Zellige tiles!

We typically like to save the most stunning example for last, and this Zellige bathroom certainly fits the bill. Our Natural White 2″x6″ Zellige has never looked more serene and elegant than in this beautifully designed bathroom.

Embrace Nature with Riad Tile

What do these stunning tile installations have in common? They all feature Zellige tiles, handcrafted works of art that are not only beautiful but also masters of illusion.

Zellige tiles’ unique hand-cut shapes and vibrant colors, combined with their reflective and refractive properties, create dynamic, ever-changing surfaces that resemble the textures and irregularities found in nature. Imagine showering in a sea of shimmering waves or cooking in a kitchen illuminated by the warm glow of a sunset captured in tile form.

How to Bring Nature Home with Zellige Tiles

To achieve a similar look in your own home, consider the color palette and the specific room you’d like to transform. What kind of feeling are you hoping to evoke?

Warm and earthy tones, when paired with natural materials like wood and stone, complement the organic vibe created by Zellige tiles. Think sun-kissed beaches and lush forests.

On the other hand, deep blues and greens can evoke a sense of calm and tranquility, mirroring the colors of the ocean and serene natural landscapes.
