Please Ma'am May I Have Another

I received a request from Meg on House Notes a few weeks ago asking would I post a few pictures of backsplash ideas. I have not been able to find the time up until this point (so sorry) but you wanted them...well now you have them! And a lot of them! :)

Subway tile of any material or finish is my absolute favorite! To me, in an odd way, it feels timeless but has such a modern feel to it.

Really cool way to mix up your sizes but mean while staying within the same tile family.

Now this is for the artistic! You can make any design, and I mean any, with mosaic tiles. This will make any home unique; it's a great way to express your inner artist!

I do like the look of slate tiles. We have them on the floor of my kitchen in a larger size. There are so many colors that jump out...beautiful anywhere!

How about a little metal?? This is a cool design and is so practical for wiping up grease splatter behind the range/cooktop area.

Sticking with the same pattern but switching the material...travertine! I love this material too. It's a natural material that you can choose to fill in the creases and crevices for a smoother finish if you'd like.

I love the boldness of this kitchen. There are so many colors screaming out! I would love to experiment with more color in the beach house that I'm going to buy...one day.

Recycled tile is always a great direction to go in. This particular view shows an iridescent, mosaic tile. This type of tile comes in every shade of color you can imagine.

Again with the subway tile, I know, I know. Not even to mention that it's white...my favorite! Yes, I have a lot of favorites but white subway tile might take the cake!

How much fun is this? This is a backsplash in a bath area. Great area to just have a little more fun in!

Another example of mosaic tile. I love the contemporary feel of this kitchen. It's so clutter free!

I have seen this look more and more within the past few months. Almost any type of countertop material will work on the walls but the look of marble is my favorite. With its coloration and characteristics it feels like it has an old soul to me!


  1. Fabulous!! I am also obsessed with white subway tile. So chic and so affordable!

  2. Thanks, lady! And it's funny. Lee and I were actually originally considering recycled glass but recently decided we love the look of subway tile...and we're even thinking white! Thanks so much for the post! You're such a great source for knowledge!
