                                You’ve probably seen Avery Thatcher’s wallpapers before or maybe you’ve downloaded her <a href="https://design-milk.com/desktop-wallpaper-february-2018/" data-wpel-link="internal">Designer Desktop</a> earlier this year. Under her company <a href="https://jujupapers.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Juju Papers</a>, Avery designs and creates rolls of wallpapers printed by hand in an array of prints and colors that would turn anyone into a pattern lover. Now, she’s taking Juju Papers in a new direction with the debut of her cement tile line, <a href="https://jujupapers.com/collections/tile" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Fruit Salad</a>, a chromatic cement tile series that is just as bold and colorful as her wallpapers.
Tiles isn’t a foreign field for Avery, who actually used to be a tile installer and has dreamed of designing tiles for a long time. With Fruit Salad, she wanted to create a tile series that had all the complexity and ornamentation of a handmade tile mosaic without the pain point of a complicated install. The tiles, which come in four different versions, are hydraulic pressed handmade

Tape begins with standard black and white base tiles that feature eight modern patterns in five different shades. The small, colorful patterns lay on top of the raw tiles, at first hard to decipher until you get closer. Tape can be used indoors and out, and for both floors and walls, with an endless array of possible combinations. Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay, of Raw Edges say:
We imagined this collection to seem as if it were made up of rolls of coloured shapes that rest on the raw tiles, creating different settings thanks to the vast number of possible combinations.
Just like the original Folded
