Addison Mizner – Tile Collection

1920s society architect Addison Mizner spent several years as a young man with his family in Guatemala City. There he fell in love with its decorative Spanish architecture and colorful Moorish-influenced tilework. He also reveled in the wrought-iron fixtures, barrel tile roofs, and ornately carved wood that would become his lifelong design inspiration.

His own Mizner Industries workshop in South Florida made 13 solid-colored tiles for use in his projects, but he collected decorative tile from Spain and North Africa and mixed it generously with the solid colors in his Mediterranean Revival designs for numerous Palm Beach-area mansions.

Much of this decorative tile can still be seen in situ at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.

The tile designs on this page reflect Dutch influence and Addison Mizner’s interpretive designs.
