well tiled

Y'all know me. When it comes to interiors, I'm very much of the "if it's black, white and gold, I'm all over it" train of thought. But this trip has me changing my tune, particularly in regards to hand painted tiles. For one of our first stops, shortly after the Blue Mosque, Heather and I were keen to see the Harem inside Topkapi Palace (I mean, have you ever been in a Harem? Me either!). 

As I mentioned before, I'll be sharing a much longer recap of our trip in a later post, but the tile work inside the palace is just too good not to share a little peek beforehand. Cerulean blues. Dusty rose pinks. Antique golds. The colors were just spectacular and sometimes covered entire rooms, floor to ceiling. To say I didn't want to leave and just wanted to curl up in a room to take it all in, would be a serious understatement.
