Tiles we Love: Kitchen backsplashes worth the change!

It's no secret that everyone loves Chip & Joanna Gaines. Did anyone see the most recent episode of HGTV's "Fixer Upper?" In the couple's most recent episode, they turned a neglected home in Waco, TX into a European-style cottage. The kitchen featured tile that caught my eye (see above). Using a Mediterranean tile from counter to ceiling, turns this kitchen backsplash into a work of art and beautiful focal point. Recently, my clients have been loving this look! I've gathered some other examples of this backsplash style, enjoy. 

I love these hand-painted tiles (on right). It makes it feel like you're in an old Italian kitchen, but the updated countertops make the space still feel fresh.

This bold Moroccan tile would be great for a bar area.

A few tips:  After designing and renovating many projects with tile, it is imperative that you choose a professional installer.  Exact cuts, measurements and proper prep are crucial for a perfect outcome.  Don't be afraid of color or pattern, let you style come through.

If your style is bold and creative, don't hesitate to experiment.  These one of kind patterned tiles bring life to this space!

 I love this 

If white is your style, the tile pictured on the left creates interest by adding texture.
