I think I’m in love -or- I finally found kitchen backsplash tile!

September 22nd, 2011

So I have been on a quest…. a quest for backsplash tile. It has been a discouraging quest at times, but today I think I found what I’m looking for! I have been looking for a tile similar to this one:

A subway tile with a lot of aqua and taupe tones with depth to the color. I thought it was a frosted glass tile, so that’s what I’ve been searching for. But today I went to a an awesome local shop and found this:

Why, hello beautiful! The color variation is a bit different than the inspiration photo, but it has that same warm feel without being tuscan or modern. And its quite a bit more unique than white subway tile. The cool thing about these tiles is that each color that you buy (this sample shows two) has a lot of variation within one box. So if you mix 2 or 3 colors of tile together, it’s going to look like you have 10 or more subtle shades going on. I absolutely love it and am so excited to pick out the colors and get it ordered!

    Very pretty – you know, we have similar taste 🙂 We have a cream shaker-style kitchen and our splash-back tiles are cream, placed in a brick layout. Can’t wait to see your finshed room!!!

    I can’t remember the brand anymore for those tiles (saw the samples at BI Design in EL Dorado Hills CA). The ones I ended up ordering were STATUS brand.
