what is this type of uneven tile called? - I am looking for tile like this to use as a backsplash. I saw something like this in a restaurant bathroom with the uneven edges and it was in off-white. could you please tell me the type of tile this is called. It looks French to me. Would that be accurate? Thanks very much. Love your work.

I would like to know the name of the tile used on the island and where to order it. Swag!

Is the ceiling brick safe for earth quake zone?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This cheerful kitchen is at the other end of the axis that runs through the dining room. Howell wanted to avoid the busier, glossier hand-painted tiles commonly seen around Mexico, so the kitchen is full of sunny yellow handmade 2-inch by 2-inch ceramic tiles.
