I am one of those weird designers who is constantly stroking (fondling?) tile samples in showrooms. I love it all. From your basic ceramic, to custom metal and glass, a good tile installation has the ability to make me swoon! So as you can imagine, I have been eagerly awaiting the installation of this kitchen's back splash.
Please forgive the blurry iPhone shots. (I promise, one day I will get a big girl camera and learn how to use it. But really the iPhone is just so darn convenient!)
And a closeup of the gorgeous beveled edge/slightly crackled subway tile, with a recycled glass and stone mosaic inlay:
Across the way we used only the mosaic tile in the small amount of space we have behind the stove, below the bar.
Can I say that it is all just unbelievably gorgeous with the warm rich chocolate tones of the concrete counter top!
As soon as the construction dust has cleared, I will definitely get someone who knows what they are doing up to the house to help me record all of the details (just wait till you see what we did in the bathroom!)
