    It’s no surprise that we love tile, so it’s not hard to get a little emotional talking about the beauty and warmth that can be achieved with the design material that sometimes get a bad rap for being cold and sterile.

    If you need a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing, take a look at these photos of dramatic spaces punched up a few levels with some really awesome tile work. Color, texture, and mixed shapes — they have a little bit of everything.
