trend we love: geometric falling block tile
graphic tile that packs a punch.

We’re falling for geometric tile… FAST. The international design trend is popping up on our feeds and we couldn’t help but share the spaces that give us serious inspiration. We’re particularly crazy for falling block tile, a hexagonal tile pattern that almost appears three-dimensional. Depending on scale, the tile design works in a variety of spaces — kitchen backsplashes, bathroom walls, even dining room floors. So replace that subway or mosaic tile with something more graphic! Bolder is definitely better.
Bright yellow and muted beige liven up this otherwise netural bathroom.
