Some call it terra cotta. Others say saltillo. Having grown up in New Mexico, I prefer the latter.
This age old tile is earthy.
But classic enough to use in traditional interiors.
A great alternative to hardwoods.
(I love pattern and color used here.)
Saltillo is epecially great in the kitchen where it hides dirt like no one's business, although don't drop a plate on it.
This tile is so hard-wearing, you can even use it outdoors.
I can say all of this with authority because I have lived with it.
How do you feel about saltillo tile?
Would you ever use it in your home?
