Awesome Contemporary Motifs To Personalize Your Space

(4 min read) Making a home your own can be achieved by filling it with your much-loved belongings and the people you care about. But what else can we do to create a space that we feel truly represents us? If redecorating the whole room doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, perhaps implementing a contemporary mosaic motif will help to personalize and energize your home… It’s simpler than you think!


Kitchen Mosaics

Liven up your kitchen with a handmade kitchen mosaic backsplash or motif; tile mosaics are both easy to wipe and are sure to enrich the heart of the home with a creative touch. The design possibilities are endless – whether you prefer a modern stone look or a colorfully classic glass mosaic, you can enrich your home with just as much flavor as the delicious cooking that takes place there. Take a look at the gorgeously endless options that come with decoration murals and mosaic art for the kitchen.

Create Separation With An Island Mosaic

Give your breakfast bar or dining table a truly stunning footing of tile mosaics to bring depth to the space and compartmentalize your kitchen and dining area. The eye will be keenly drawn to the space, adding to its appeal. Try a sumptuous repeated pattern and dual colors to create a colorful and slick cohesion.

Personalize Your Bedroom With A Unique Mosaic Motif

Hanging photos and paintings has its place in the home, but if you are growing tired of mainstream décor, perhaps try an artistic mosaic artwork… Pictorial and abstract motifs offer all the visual beauty of a painting with an eccentric and unique textured twist.

Go Bold With Paint Sample Pots!

Use up those tiny paint sample pots by experimenting with playfully small motifs; create squares or circles interacting with shelves or windows as an eye-catching addition to your main wall color… Sure to give your room an edgy and daring style.

Indulge In Bathroom Sophistication With Fresh Contemporary Artwork

Create an airy, relaxing aura in your washroom with natural motifs and bathroom mosaics, creating a delicate sophistication whilst keeping it waterproof and easy to clean. Something as simple as a cultural Turkish shower curtain can spruce up the most tired bathrooms with a lively lilt. Adding a natural aesthetic with blues, greens, and floral designs will give you the feeling of a true escape at bath time.

    These design tips are all so unique! I’ve literally never heard of using tile on the ground like that (almost like a rug?). And the tip about using paint to create those abstract designs on the wall would be so cute for a kids room!

    I love bathroom mosaics, especially white and blue combos. So relaxing. For some reason, I don’t find mosaics to be my style for any other rooms in the house, maybe it’s just personal preference.

    I’ve traditionally not been a mosaic person, but my interests and personal style is always evolving. I really like the one you have shown here. I’m not sure about the using the left over paint, though. I like the idea, but I don’t think my style has evolved that much yet. Lol.

    I am loving all of the mosaics in the house here. I am not sure we have the right layout or design to be able to incorporate them. And a lot of our house is wood. I wonder what it would look like on the wood. Anyway, these are beautiful.

    • June 15, 2019 at 9:14 am

      Hey David, we’ve done a lot of marble mosaics over wood, it looks amazing, just a thought.
