bathroom floor is in!

Finally, the Cuban floor tiles that I chose were installed. They are from the Cuban Heritage Collection at Villa Lagoon Tile. They are encaustic cement tiles. Tiles like these are prevalent in other places like Spain and Morocco. The technique came to Havana Cuba in the late 1800s and local designers quickly developed patterns that were unique to Cuba. This book Havana Tile Designs is a good source of patterns.

  1. Also, is that a reflection on the bathtub? I can see the “negative” of the tiles on the front of the tub. This is even cooler. When can I come take a bath at your house?
    You should write about the months you came to my house and took showers in my kitchen…lol
