colorful tiles in the deutschland UBahn

berlin: yellow and orange ubahn tiles... and umlauts!

It’s a dark gray, rainy day today, and even though I have a pile of projects I’d like to work on, the heaviness of the clouds is weighing me down. Luckily, I have something bright and colorful to combat the gray: pictures of the brightly colored tiles in the Deutschland UBahn. Is there anything better than brightly colored, age-worn subway tiles?

It’s art, for sure.

I must be the wrong kind of engineer… I’d love to have the “tile planning” job.

I hope these brighten your day. I’d love to make a subway-tile inspired quilt project… hmm… time to get back to the sewing room!
