the tile that changes everything
I've been working like a maniac to save for the remodel and learning everything I can about the infrastructure of the house/kitchen. I know that I've been planning a sort of vintage-ish country kitchen. White shaker inset cabinets, soapstone counters, no or limited uppers but shelves instead with storage bins below, and wood floors (the same throughout kitchen, dining, living room).
But then I saw this stunningly beautiful handpainted tile from a link in the bathroom forum. I am in LOVE! (Please see row 1 and 2 on page four of ceramics).
And now I fear nothing I've thought I wanted and planned would coordinate with this tile, and I have to change evrything else.
Please take a look at the Samarra Yellow. The new idea (from bottom to top) is to have a row of the border, then the tile, then the border 2 as backsplash around two sides of a U-shaped 10x 14 kitchen.
What cabinet style and color? What counter? What ideas to create a kitchen (blue, yellow, and green are my colors) that would work well with this marvelous tile? If I kept my original ideas would the tile be too jarring and/or uncoordinated?
