Spotlight On | Birds

We're all a flutter over birds this time of year at the Tileworks, and these handsome fellas (or ladies, if you will) help bring nature indoors any time of year...in any room!


Songbird Kitchen

We'll shine our spotlight first on a kitchen we'd just love to cook in. Here, smart Songbirds welcome the chef with their sturdy perch among the Long Stems. Field tile in soft Storm Blue add a touch of the sky to this backsplash.

No detail was left out (including the delicious looking appetizers being created). Notice the homeowner designed power outlets to be attached underneath the cabinets, an important detail if you don't want to have to cut outlet holes in the tile.


Homecoming Concept

This cheery Charley Harper concept will add joy to any kitchen or bath. The 4x8 Homecoming decorative tiles are integrated in a versatile subway layout in Motawi's Pale Blue, Caribbean Blue, and beautifully crackled Cream glaze colors.
Songbird Wet Bar

This wet bar features our Songbird tiles in the midnight colorway. The turquoise palette of the accent tiles are surrounded by subway tiles in Motawi's Caribbean Blue glaze color.
Songbird Nook

Storm Blue glaze color and Songbird decorative tiles pair up again for a small backsplash in a nook in a beautifully appointed kitchen.


Hummingbird Backsplash

In this kitchen, a framed group of our 6x8 Hummingbird tiles are surrounded by subway tiles in Light Sand, giving the cook something to gaze at while creating the next meal.

The buttery Light Sand and Pale Green glaze colors are the perfect surround to this window of beauty.
Upside Downside Kitchen

The open window in this kitchen is the ideal way for delicious smells to waft out. We like to look at it another way: it was a tempting invitation for the precious birds to land on Charley Harper's 6x6 Upside Downside decorative tiles on the backsplash on a cloud of Pale Blue subway tiles. If mid-century modern is your design preference, this kitchen is certainly for you!
Songbird Fireplace

The warm light of the fire in this stunning fireplace is delicately accented by Songbird decorative tiles in the Golden color and surrounded by tile in various sizes and colors.
Charley Harper Bird Collage Concept

If you just can't decide which bird is your favorite, why not include them all? This backsplash concept doesn't leave anybody out: from a busy woodpecker, to a sassy blue jay and even cardinals and grosbeaks, the Charley Harper flock is well represented. Motawi tile in Cream is happily flecked with Red (available only as an accent), Golden and Pale Blue glaze colors.
Family Owlbum Concept

Perfect for a kitchen or even a bathroom, this family of owls adds an adorable accent to any home. All dressed up in Cream subway tiles, with accents in our Dark Brown and Granite glaze colors, this is certainly a Family Owlbum you'll want to hang on the wall!
Songbird Collage Backsplash

Truly an Arts & Crafts lovers dream, this lovely collage of field tiles highlights a grouping of Songbirds who look like they are trying to sing for their dinner.
