My blue backsplash sneak peek...marcolo this one's for you ;)
OK, I have to be honest- this design is going over the cooktop as a 24x24 piece and not the entire backsplash. The rest is... OK marcolo look away now- Carrara ahem (ahem) subway. But I think the design and color (which I customized) make up for the "lighness" of the rest of the space. And might I add the cooktop wall is the first thing you see as you enter the house which is by the water, hence the aquatic theme, in addition to my love of all things coastal ;) It is hand blown glass so there is a sheen to it, but the high gloss you see in the pic is the plastic wrapping.
And of course, I will get some shots of the finished product!
