I caught a glimpse of your pretty backsplash in another thread. Would you tell me which tiles and colors you ultimately used? Fireclay, yes? I guess I missed the final decision.
Kitchendetective - thanks for calling my tile pretty ! After all the ABB angst we had and the 7 trips to Fireclay tile, I really appreciate the feedback. The BS tile is Fireclay tile from the Vitrail series. There are three shades - Lt.Sea Green which is around 50% of the tiles with Granny Smith with a matte finish around 30% and Spruce green in glossy finish around 20%. The spruce was a custom glaze as they tried to match a Heath tile I had liked. They did not charge me extra for that. I have some accent tiles in Claret and aubergine around the vintage tile feature behind the cooktop.
Here are some more pics
I know I know.. I should really do the finished kitchen post.. My excuse until last week was that I was waiting for a couple of things to be fixed which got done this week.. So I am clean out of excuses :)
Happy sigh. The combination of your backsplash and countertop is so visually satisfying.
Oh, gosh, I looove your kitchen. Have been waiting for more soapstone combined with color. Kudos on a job well done!
GWlolo, please post pix of your finished kitchen! I love the glimpses you've posted already. What faucet is that? I've never seen one like it before. And is that a water filter faucet on the right? If so, what type of water filter do you have? I'm hunting for a RO filter and can't figure out what to choose. Thanks.
Looking forward to your finished pics! I am color shy and it looks so lovely from what you've shown.
