Kitchen backsplash is in!

The kitchen backsplash is finally done.  Now, our new kitchen is complete.
The field tile is 4x4's stone.  I like to run  a course straight and then add a liner and finish diagonally.
Our tile guys did the job for us this time.  We had to wait to order some of the tile.
The two focal points are different.  We fell in love with the look behind the range top.
The window wall is another look.
I must say, I should have gone with my gut feeling, by adding more glass tiles for the window wall.  One of the tile personnel suggested using less and  now I feel it looks like polka dots.  We will live with the window wall for awhile, to see if it grows on us.  If not, our tile guy said, we can  install new tiles right over that, because there is room, because of the recessed niche.

Before the tile.

I will leave you with a picture of Sir Dante. He is 10 months old now and quite a character.

Happy weekend everyone....Hugs...........

  12. Linda, I couldn't wait to see what you picked .. and it's gorgeous. I'm not sure what I'll end up with. There's so many decisions and lots of inspiration that I sometimes feel like I'm spinning and can't make a decision. Enjoy your day! xxleslie

  13. Linda- That looks beautiful. I love the subtle color of it and it works beautifully in your kitchen. Great choices!!! Hope you are doing well! xo Diana

  14. Hooray! I know that was a big part of the finished look that you were anxious to see completed. It looks terrific!!! Enjoy your brand new kitchen!!!

  15. So beautiful, Linda! I don't think it looks like polka dots and the really the view through the window is what becomes the main focus. Everything has come together so wonderfully after all your planning and hard work. It's a real treasure to be proud of, my friend.
    As always, Dante makes me giggle. I just want to squeeze him! Love you, WW. xoox
