Having a Moment: Patterned Tiles
While model Daria Werbowy does a magnificent job of showcasing the immaculately polished F/W 13 looks from the always brilliant Phoebe Philo in the new crop of Céline ads, when we first spied the Juergen Teller images we couldn't take our eyes off of the background. There is something about the interplay of the collection's streamlined silhouettes with the intricate zellige tiles and muted ivory chevron floor design that gets our hearts racing. We're picturing something similar in a kitchen, bathroom, or transitional outdoor space--and suggest mixing pattern-on-pattern with monochromatic oversized options. Accent with clean-lined utilitarian furnishings to keep the effect modern and prevent it from veering into overly thematic territory. To create your own camera-ready moment, shop our favorite tile options inspired by Teller and Philo's vision below.
