A sneak peek of my backsplash

Here's a peek at my backsplash that's almost finished. We need to get all of the grout haze off and seal the grout. It's still a bit wet.

We're in the eleventh week of a reno that was supposed to take four. The end is in sight!

Very pretty. The tile on the feature piece has a pearlescent look to it. I read an article about choosing backsplash and the author felt you needed to make either the counter or backsplash the star so they don't compete. Your kitchen is a perfect example of why that is true. Lovely.

Thank you.

I was afraid to show my husband the Chrysanthemum piece before it was up for 2 reasons; the price and that he might object to flowers. He walked in from a business trip last night and looked and said "beautiful". It made me very very happy, since he is not typically effusive.

Thanks Marinagirl. I was hoping for elegant and understated when I choose this back Splurge! ( I lifted that phrase from someone on GW, it surely applies here.

Hi Michelle 16
Sorry I missed your question earlier. The center is Crysanthemum in Calcutta marble by Artistic Tile. The rest is oyster white mother of pearl in mini brick. They are both grouted with Snow White grout.

Thanks for asking.

Gorgeous! And it's always an added bonus when husbands appreciate those types of choices, too ;-)
