I’m starting a series here at Rustico Tile – our Weekly Tile Pick!  You’ll gain insight into which tiles and patterns are buzzing around our office.  This week’s pick is by our beloved, Shelley.  She’s chosen Manganese Riviera Saltillo Tile.  You’ll love her logic on this pick!

Manganese Riviera Saltillo is a 2-tile pattern made up of our San Felipe (aka Arabesque) and Fleur de Lis shaped tiles.  The two shapes form an interlocking pattern that we refer to as Riviera.  While this comes in all 3 of our saltillo tile finishes, Shelley has picked this one in our Manganese finish.

Manganese Saltillo finish is a really gorgeous blend of neutral tones including light and dark brown, cream, and some terracotta shades that bleed through to the surface.  In the process of creating Manganese saltillo tiles, we add an ingredient to the clay.  This results in a dynamic and versatile color range of finished Mexican tile.


Some questions that I posed to Shelley regarding Manganese Riviera Saltillo tile:

RTS: Shelley, what do you love most about your choice this week?
S:  I just really love the versatility of the pattern.  It installs well in both small and large spaces without seeming busy.  This pattern does not get lost in a large space.

RTS:  What advice can you give to our customers who are considering Manganese Riviera Saltillo for their home?
S:  This pattern looks great when it’s framed with our 6×12 Manganese Saltillo tile and paired with our matching bullnose baseboard tile.  Framing the interlocking pattern creates a natural starting and ending point for the pattern.  The 6×12 border tile is just the right size too – not too large or to small for the Riviera pattern.

RTS: Why do you recommend that people purchase our Manganese Riviera Saltillo tile pattern?
S:  Well, it’s certainly a good value for a decorative flooring option.  And when this tile is installed, it’s a one-of-a-kind look.  These saltillo tile floors make a refined statement about a homeowner’s taste.  It’s the perfect union between sophisticated and rustic.  And of course, like any of our saltillo tile floors, this pattern is extremely durable and made to last a lifetime.  I don’t think you can go wrong with our Manganese Riviera Saltillo tile.

P.S.  While I’m calling this our Rustico’s Bi-Weekly Tile Pick, please understand that I’m tasked with many things that consume my time including but not limited to: work, managing our sales staff, marketing, finance, etc (I could go on…), taking care of Max the tile-dog, mothering 2 high-energy kids, and finding the wallet, key, or hat that my husband has misplaced.  SO, if this becomes a “Monthly” Tile Pick, please extend a little grace to me!  Working moms, I know you feel me on this.
