World Mosaic’s tile on all new Love It or List It Vancouver episodes

Posted on February 16th, 2015

 You will love what Jillian Harris has done with our tile on all new episodes of Love It or List It Vancouver, now airing on the W-Network on Monday nights!

From bathrooms, to feature walls, to kitchen backsplashes, celebrity host Jillian Harris has hand picked some of her favorite World Mosaic tile to feature on the hit show Love It or List It Vancouver. We love how Jillian has used glass tile, porcelain tile as well as natural stone in order to make every space truly unique.

Shown in this sneak peek photo is Spring Fling, a hand-crafted, recycled glass tile by Oceanside. This is a lovely blend of colours that will bring a clean pop of colour to any space. Not a fan of yellow? No problem. All Oceanside glass tile is completely customizeable so you can make your own colour blend in order to match your own tastes and personality.

5 Backsplash Trends for 2015 by World Mosaic Tile.

As 2014 comes to an end World Mosaic Tile looks into the New Year for the top trends in backsplash tile. Here are 5 backsplash tiles that will make waves in 2015!

1. Sophisticated Geometric

Use Tagina’s Etoile pattern for a unique backsplash feature in your kitchen. Available in an 8×8 or 24×24 these porcelain tiles can be installed tight together for minimal grout joints. Did we mention these tiles are in stock?

World Mosaic Etoile Collection is a fantastic choice for a backsplash tile

2. Penny Rounds & Hexagons

Hexagons and penny rounds are no longer restricted to the floor, they now beg to be used as a backsplash tile. From a bright blue to a classic white, the colour choices are endless. These tiles will create a fresh and inviting look for your kitchen.

For colours available at World Mosaic check out our Gallery

4. Decorative Stone

For a backsplash that calls for elegance with a twist try Walker Zanger’s Jet Set collection or their brand new Tangent collection. From Calacatta in a chevron pattern to a Carrara cut into a woven arabesque shape, these unique laser cut patterns bring decorative stone to the next level.

New Tangent Collection by Walker Zanger makes an interesting natural stone backsplash.

5. Hand painted Terracotta

Having the ability to choose the size, shape and colour of your backsplash tile makes your kitchen truly unique. Choose from patterns inspired by tribal motifs of the Touareg tribe in North Africa, the timeless elegance of the Metro Stations of Paris, or the medieval Palio Festival of Italy. These are just a taste of the many patterns available for this hand-crafted terracotta. Where will your Tabarka backsplash take you? For more ideas check out our Tabarka Collection.

Oceanside Glasstile, Devotion collection is the couture of all glass tiles. This recycled glass product looks similar to stained glass art due to the interesting water jet and hand cut designs. This collection is available in variety of colours spanning from earth tones to bold jewel tones to compliment any project in a chic way.

The Devotion in Silver Cloud Blend is a unique piece of glass art that looks magnificent as a shower or backsplash feature. Could you imagine a powder room wall covered with this beauty? It would be absolutely breathtaking!

Ceramic tile is no longer confined to squares and subway shapes as technology and consumer demand is allowing for more complex shapes and fabulous colours. Shapes inspired by Moroccan architecture are making a strong presence in all aspects of interior design and tile is no exception. Shown here is the Walker Zanger, Arabesque in a crackle finish blue. An absolutely lovely ceramic tile to bring interest to a bathroom or a backsplash project.

Stay tuned for another one of our vignettes to be installed with new stock tile that is coming in this week! This one will be quite dramatic in terms of colours and pattern- think a chic patchwork quilt. We can’t wait to get these tiles off the boat from Italy and into our showroom!
