With the variety form of the ceramics, it gives different nuance on the balcony of this house. Just as info, ceramics used as mosaic also being used in a famous place; Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain.
In here, the architect Gaudi uses tile/ceramic mosaic with certain interesting pattern, that we can also use in our home. If we dare to ‘paint’ parts of our house with this mosaiz, like carport, terrace, balcony, and others. First, draw lines of patterns on paper. You can discuss it with your family and ask your children to draw fish, aeroplane, and other forms creatively, then you can ‘draw’ the real mosaic.
A little creativity might help. You can also ask for advice from architect or graphic designer.
