the marble backsplash


...is done!

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.

Yes, yes, and yes!!! Casey, it's beautiful. I think this may be MY ideal kitchen too. I love everything about it that you've chosen and I'm looking forward to seeing your detailed post with everything that you chose. The backsplash mixed with the counters and combine the cabinets is so pretty. Well done and enjoy it! PS - do you like your toaster oven? We're going to need a new one and yours looks nice.

I loooooooove it! It's also my all time favorite tile. I am thinking about using the same tile in the kitchen of our new house - with medium gray lower cabinets. Your kitchen looks so beautiful. And so does Emerson - she's so perfect and chubby!

Eeeek!!! It's GORGEOUS! You know what my favorite part is? I love your cabinet color with the grey of the tile. It really feels warm and lovely, where as white might have come off feeling a bit stark or cold. Kudos to you, Lady. Once again, I just love your taste and style.

Casey, so beautiful!! I particularly love the color of the cabinets against the marble. And, I'm loving your glass front cabinets and how high your cabinets are! So lovely, Casey. You must be so happy!!

So it looks like our kitchen is going to be a go! I might have to steal this backsplash and I was totally looking forward to you posting about it.

I love the subway tile. The color and texture really goes well with the granite counter and cabinets. Looks Great!
