Wooden Tiles by Moonish Co.

by Grace Bonney

As a renter, the day when I’ll be able to tile is always on my mind. I look at my current apartment’s pink and yellow tiles with glitter grout (oh yes, that exists) and loathe the fact that I can do nothing to change it. But one day that will change, and I’m happily going to install something that is glitter-free and beautiful. Until that day, I continue to covet and hoard photos of pretty tiles like a nut. These beautiful tiles are actually magnetic wooden tiles. Made of marine plywood, each is hand dyed and painted in Brooklyn by Moonish Co. I love that they’re easy to apply, remove and change whenever you like. According to the site, they’re a renter’s dream because all you need to do is apply the magnets to the wall and then attach the tiles. I’m always worried about the glue being too strong and taking part of the wall off, but if anyone tries this, please let me know. I’d love to cover at least some of the glitter grout in my apartment.
