1 Surrounding a fireplace
A unique cooking process makes zellige tiles super resistant and therefore popular in kitchens and bathrooms. But elsewhere they can also be functional: the designer Eva Holbrook places them around this fireplace to protect the wall from the heat.
2 Choose small tiles
The zellige tiles used in this powder room designed by Hecker Guthrie are thinner than most, creating an effect similar to the sequins. Combined with dark black details and elegant white marble, this sparkling glow makes you feel like you’re inside a disco ball.
3 Go with classic white
The texture of the glossy finish shines much more than the normal subway. To hold a small section of zellige accents, add a floating shelf just above it, as in this space designed by Arent & Pyke.
4 Highlight a color
One of the many cool things about zellige tiles is that you can create a cocoon tonal effect, as each tile offers more variety than a single shade of paint. ETC.etera has chosen a rainbow of roses for this mosaic shower.
