Changing out plain, old ceramic tiles in a boring color can have a dramatic effect on your kitchen, bathroom or fireplace. Creating interest while adding ambiance with sculptural elements can really punch up the volume in a space. I'm especially drawn to the effect produced by Ann Sacks' decorative tiles. Using a time-honored, Italian technique called sgraffito, which uses clay carved reliefs, each tile becomes a unique expression all on its own. Available in either 'Dahlia' or 'Nautilus', tiles can be purchased in groups of fifteen to create a mural for approximately $480 plus tax and shipping. Personally I'm taken with the Dahlia design in persimmon and the warm effect it would have in a kitchen or around a fireplace.
