tiles ponsonby auckland
I can’t get enough of old tiling. I don’t know what it is about it: maybe that people used to be more adventurous with the design of them (using different repeated patterns) or the way that they seem to be a little inappropriate in their use (not really strong enough to be outside) or just that they get all broken and ooze history. I have started to think that I cannot tell the difference between those which are actually old and those that are just supposed to look old. Anyway, these are from out the front of the Household Linens store in Ponsonby, and they give a spring to my step on this warm summer day.
