If you love tile and the vibrant aesthetic of Frida Kahlo's art, then you're in luck. As a part of Fireclay Tile's "Stories" program, the brand created a collection of sample kits inspired by the famous Mexican artist. Curated by guest storyteller and showroom designer Sylvia Fajen, La Casa de Frida weaves together a tile tapestry that celebrates the Kahlo's love for lush florals, bright textiles, and whimsical folk art.
“With Stories, we challenged ourselves to find a way to respond to current trends in design and seasonality, without contradicting our belief that good design is one of our most sustainable assets,” said Jamie Chappell, creative director at Fireclay Tile. “This encouraged us to create a new sampling experience with curated content that offers design inspiration, while also retaining the integrity of our products’ permanence.”
Within the Kahlo-inspired story, rich blues, sun-kissed yellows, pastel pinks, and earthy oranges are highlighted within the handmade tile palette. The brand also created a variety of designs that are often found at traditional haciendas. To get a taste of the delicious hues IRL, you only have to pay $10 for a sample pack. With the guidance of the story's website, you can achieve your Casa de Frida goals.
