Vihara backsplash in finally!

msroseJune 1, 2013

Can't believe it's finally done! The funny thing is it doesn't match quite as well as the sample. I couldn't figure out why at first, but then I realized the brown paper on the back of the sample made it appear more gold than it really was. Oh well!

I think it looks great! To me, the new color really brings out the swirls in the counter.

I agree - it looks different due to the backing but pretty regardless - I brought this one home but it didn't work for me - but I am so happy it worked for you. Enjoy it for me :-)

It does look very different in coloring but still looks good with your counter and ties the sink color in better. Congratulations!

Your earlier thread inspired me to go and look at this backsplash. It is sooooo pretty. It's not quite the right colors for my application so I'm continuing the search! I know how many samples you went through and how much you agonized over the decision--you definitely made the right choice--it's really beautiful! Congrats!!

It looks great. I am sure you are happy to have this project done.
Now, you can walk across the stage and receive your certificate from the ABB club (^_^)

I think it looks great! How did you end up doing the tiling around the windows?

Thanks everyone! I'm definitely glad to have this one behind me. Next project...trying to figure out what kind of floors will look good in my kitchen and family room.

Corgimum - I'll try and take a picture later tonight when the light isn't shining through the windows, but we ended up using the Virhara inside the window and grout around the edges. Did you pick your backsplash yet?

I think I have found the "one". Samples came the other day but I am out of town so a final color decision will wait. I also have to get a detailed price quote before I commit.

I forgot about your windows. Please post a picture so we can see how they turned out.

Gorgeous! Vihara was my second choice since I went with mother of pearl.it's not up yet, I hope I love it as much as this gorgeous bs of yours, it's so hard second guessing all of my choices. Yours looks perfect!

relsah - My countertop is Taj Mahal. I've been told it's quartizite and I've been told it's granite?
