Sneak peak of backsplash going in!

hobokenkitchenApril 10, 2013

Our backsplash FINALLY arrived after months on the slow boat (row boat?) from Spain and most of it went in today. We are short 1 single tile. Lol.

We now have to wait until Monday for grout, but here is a sneak peak. I think I really like it, but I need to see it grouted - I hope it blends a little more.

I'm not sure if it comes over in pics, but the colors are really harmonius with our cabinets/ floors/ butcher block and counters.

Please excuse all the junk on the counters!

Congrats!

When did you make a decision?

How did I miss that? Or am I just that forgetful?

Close up pics?

Made the decision months ago, but it had to come from Spain and it took simply forever to arrive.

I'll take more pics soon....

I love the conversation the tile is having with your pendants. Can't wait to see the grouted, finished 'splash, and the rest of the kitchen too. Beautiful!

Very excited to see your post! The lights are distracting in the picture so it's a tad hard to see... when will it be grouted? Please post more pictures from different angles so we can all enjoy too! Best, oldbat2be

That is really gorgeous!! And I love those lights!
On another note, could I bother you to tell me the width of your island and perhaps share your layout, or just a picture of your kitchen from further back? I have a layout option with the range and sink on same wall just like yours and I'm loving the way yours looks...
congrats, they were worth the wait!

One of the nicest I've seen here in a long time and beautifully coordinated in both color and style. And highly individual. Love it!

Looking for DD2 a tile and you seem to have the same taste.

It was grouted today - I really like it... I think. It's always an adjustment when such a big change happens!

We now have to wait for the last single tile we are missing - they said it will be shipping next week. Based on their track record of delivering this tile, we'll probably get to install it some time July. ; )

My phone just ran out of battery, but I'll post a pic as soon as it's charged up again.

Looks sooooo good in your kitchen and it's really perfect with the light fixture!

My bedroom lamp is a cousin to your light fixture!

Thanks! Here's a super close up which shows the floral pattern.

It's 6 x 6 porcelain Bamboo Flower Deco Dawn.
I purchased through Garden State Tile - but here's a link with the information on the tile.

Love the closeup. Wow wow wow! You must be so happy to be done (almost done?). There's always a punchlist, no?

BTW - did you make any decisions on the bathroom tile? Any progress pics from there?

Ob2b - just missing the window seat cushion - no idea when that will get done! Otherwise we're pretty much done!

Of course now the electrical outlets need new screws as the old ones are too short. Arghhhh!

We did decide on the bathroom, so now all 3 are more or less finished and just need the odd tweak here and there. I'll post pics of those soon too.

How did I miss this yesterday? Oh my, what a beautiful and very special backsplash. I do think we have similar taste. You want to pick my backsplash out for me :)
