For more details, see here where I initially wrote about the tiles we chose. I love the way the backsplash came out, though at first I have to admit I was concerned about the variation in color, with lots of gray in some places, as some of the mosaic sheets were much darker than others. It's especially noticeable behind the sink, where we opted not to go for it, tiling all the way up to the ceiling. Good decision, I think. And now the gray tones don't bother me. And they will be less noticeable anyway, when we eventually do our two floating shelves in this spot.
Sp, bottom line is these tiny little marble tiles make me happy in a big way. I really do love the variation in tone and the polish they bring to the room. The kitchen feels so finished now! Except that we of course have a few things left on our list, which I'll share with you very soon, especially because seeing the list of remaining to-do's is sure to give us a kick in the pants to get them done.
But first, one more closeup, because I love my shiny fancy backsplash so much! And coming soon, big pictures of the whole kitchen, and I'll list out all our selections for everyone who wants to know our cabinet color, granite color, etc.
