If you go to nycsubway.org there is extensive discussion of the various stations on the different lines and the type of tiles among other things.

IND tiles have a "color code" pattern. Most IRT and BMT tiles between 1904 and 1931 are Beaux Arts-based designs. Later IND styling used an Art Deco theme.
