American Tile Photos - Photos of Tiles in the United States


 

The United States is blessed with a rich tile tradition. In California especially but truly everywhere, it's almost impossible to not run across fantastic examples of tiles in historic residences and other structures around the country. From Spanish-inspired motifs to Modernist designs, the United States has a little something for everyone tile-wise.

 

On your next American adventure, be sure to keep an eye out for cement tiles and send us photos so we can build our image and inspiration library here.

Welcome to WOW! Casa Romantica in San Clemente
 
Welcome to WOW! Casa Romantica in San Clemente
 

One of the finest places to eye historic cement tile happens to be right in the heart of California at Spanish Colonial Revival estate Casa Romantica in San Clemente. Originally built in 1927 by Ole Hanson, the city’s founder, as his family home, the spectacular bluff-top building is now a cultural center offering educational

programs.

 

Designed by architect Carl Lindbom (who designed Nixon’s former mansion nearby), the oceanfront property is outfitted with a superb collection of cement tiles throughout. In both square and hexagonal shapes, the designs feature a rainbow of shades from deep maroons to sky blues to earthy oranges to grassy greens. With simplified florals, elaborate botanicals, and bursting suns, the patterns take inspiration from nature, as well as geometry, with interlocking lines, repeated stripes, and more. A great source of inspiration, the assortment of tiles you’ll find at Casa Romantica are a reminder that there’s no limit to what colors, shapes, and patterns you can mix. Moreover, you may find that the most intriguing are those with an element of surprise. And as time tells, you’ll see that these beautiful cement tiles only get better with age.

The border and corner shapes in this historic cement tile arcade were definitely borrowed from Morocco. The other fireworks field tile, though, is surprisingly contemporary for a floor installed in the late 1920s.

This is a most unusual cement tile design, part floral and part electric (see the jaggedy red line that races around the floral elements?). The cement tile border tile provides some calm and stability with what appears to be a chess motif.

Ever seen a field of daisies made of cement tile before? I hadn't before I came to Casa Romantica. This cement tile daisy field just makes you want to smile and skip around. Check out the next two detail shots of this same corridor.

This historic cement tile medallion deserves a photo all to itself since it is so full of intricate details. The other fascinating part to it is to figure out just how many metal design molds they used to make the medallion. (I'm not telling; I don't want to take away the fun.)

This straightforward, charming daisy pattern looks out from its hexagonal cement tile. The historic border and corner is also clean and bold, though entirely geometric, not floral.

It seems that every door from the Casa Romantica leads out onto a splendidly tiled arcade. This particular example of historic cement tile features a star and cross pattern. For a better look at the field and border tiles, check out the next photo.

This playful field cement tile design has a star and cross motif that emphasizes the stars and decorates them with all kinds of colorful doodads. The border cement tile is completely different in style, but unified in color. Perhaps the border is a discreet nod to the great trumpeters or sax players of the 1920s and 30s.

Well, when you've got to leave Casa Romantica - with a sigh - at least you get to exit on this splendid green, yellow and chocolate floral cement tile. The grape leaf border tile is lovely as well in its simplicity.
