We bought the bronze insert tiles at Amazon (which are replaceable). The antique green tiles seen in the foyer (at the entrance of the Parlor) were purchased on eBay for less than $1 a piece. The tiles were inspired by the Debenham House (Peacock House) in Holland Park, England. The tile work in that house is ridiculously gorgeous!
