Get the Look: Bringing the flair of Brazil


Last week, Granada Tile took you on a tour of the breathtaking cement tiles found all over Brazil. It got us thinking about how we might translate the tile installations in Brazil using our own concrete tile designs. Happily, given the breadth of our Echo Collection, we’re pleased to report that you can easily bring a little of Brazil into your next project. Here are some tile pictures to get you started! Did you love the Belle Epoque glamour of the floor tiles at the Confeitaria Columbo in Rio?

Then how about capturing some of that glamour by using our St. Tropez tile design? It has a particularly French feel, which would work perfectly when used as floor tiles or as wall tiles to create a dramatic accent.

If you’re more of a minimalist, we bet you loved the tile outside Iglesia de Gloria, also in Rio.

If that’s the case, our Burgos tile design in grays and whites might be what you’re looking for.

A versatile pattern, it would be the perfect choice for a tile backsplash or for bathroom wall tiles. With a huge palette of colors to choose from, too, you can play with it to your heart’s content. Now, if a mod look is more your thing, we bet that the alternating zig zig and straight line pattern that lines a São Paulo street floated your boat.

You can recreate the tile installation simply by opting for Ardoz and Santander arranged in alternating squares. It would be a great choice for kitchen tile or even make a dramatic wall tile.

Let the wonderful cement tiles of Brazil inspire you and your own imagination guide you to create your own concrete tile designs.
