7 mosaic decor accents that bring a touch of old-school charm

Though it’s one of the oldest motifs in history, mosaic is every bit as beloved today as it was centuries ago. Loosely defined as patterns or images composed of small pieces of glass or stone, mosaics date back to the third millennium B.C., when they were used to decorate temples in ancient Mesopotamia. Today, they provide designers with an artful alternative to traditional wall tile.

In the market for a mosaic accent that doesn’t read old-fashioned? From stained-glass-style wallpaper to floral-patterned stone and ceramic tile, Business of Home presents seven standouts to help you piece together your interior.
