For Moe, that means fewer patterns, particularly when using mosaics. “A couple of years ago I was doing a lot of mosaic borders with a lot of elaborate tile work,” she recalls. “Now I’m simplifying it. I’m still doing traditional styles, but they are much less decorated. Instead of a basket weave pattern with a double border that is carried throughout the toilet room and shower, I might do field tile and change its direction. It’s a much simpler design, with fewer patterns.”
