Thanks for all the lovely feedback on my earlier tile design thread. Yesterday the tile was grouted, and I thought I'd share pictures (it still needs to be caulked at the counter edge, so it looks rough there). I'm quite pleased. For those who missed the earlier thread, the tile is from Fireclay tile of San Jose. Hopefully in two more weeks we'll be cooking in the kitchen (although there will certainly still be stuff left to do in the remodel).

And for fun, here is my photoshop mockup of the design I did before ordering the tile (partly to see what the design would look like, partly to see how much of each tile I needed to order):

The tile is beautiful, the greens and blue are spectacular. And I love the sweet small triangles wouldn't look as nice without them, great job!

I meant sweet small diamonds (not triangles)! HA!

So nice!

Wow!
Now I understand the "discovering fireclay!"

Really great.
Did you do your own tiling? It's really well done.

Glad someone is out of the ABB club! Congratulations on a beautiful kitchen and backsplash. I hope to get kicked out of the club soon also.

Thanks for the feedback. Although I tiled my last countertop and backsplash, thankfully somebody else did the work this time. I was on hand to determine the exact layout, since I was very particular about the design. I'm really happy it fulfilled my vision.

I'm quite excited for the last few bits to tie everything together. The built in bench seats are almost done and I'm going by to have a look tomorrow. Our big stained glass window in the breakfast area is done and waiting to be installed. All the doug fir woodwork needs to be stained and the island needs to be put into position. Also, actually having a range and the faucets installed in the sink will finally complete the counter run. Our contractor (who does almost all the work himself) took a few days off this week with his family, but it's going to be a very busy next couple weeks getting things ready for us to move back in.
