I know this forum has some arabesque tile fans! Check out this feature on houzz. I like it! You?
Fun! The tile may be a little too large but I like the impact the color gives.

Ooyyyyuuuuuuuoooooohhhh...I don't like that kitchen. The turquoise tile is cool though. I've not seen that before.
I really like it - it's different.
Just don't like the blind but other than that I think it's a nice looking kitchen!
Believe me when I tell you that there are no "builder grade" kitchens in Rancho Santa Fe. Homes currently for sale there run from about 1.2M to 7M, with most being in the 3-4M range. While some homes there may have been built as spec houses, none featured lower end anything. These are country estates, and quite lovely for the most part.
As to the arabesque tile, I like the tile but not the grout color. I think the brown grout muddies the look.
