Lisbon tiles

January 24th 2011

Lisbon was a visual treat for a pattern field like me. Every other building in the compact, hilly city centre is covered in gorgeous tiles in every shade and motif combo – even the pavements are cobbled in intricate designs.

I even picked up a couple from the flea market to bring home, which will become coasters or pot holders.

    Wow, these are amazing photographs! You're making me want to go off travelling now! I love that there are so many different variations of these tiles and it's great you got some at the flea market to remind you of your trip!

    You've brought back many happy – and colourful – memories of my trip to Lisbon a couple of years ago. Just lovely!

    Really stunning photos Katie! Lisbon looks an amazing city, one which I'd never considered before – it will now be added to 'the list'! :)
