Arabesque Tile Question

Posted by jeannie01 (My Page) on

Ok - I've seen Bee's and another posters kitchens w/the arabesque tiles and I just love the look.
I am planning to order a sample of the cream and also the mixed cream and white tiles.
But just wondering if the cream would go w/cream and brown glazed cabs? or would the two toned tiles look better?
Do you consider the tile to be busy? My granite is fairly busy (Pegasus) browns, little bit of blue/grey, black and some salmon color.
I was thinking of travertine that looked great w/my cabs but horrible w/the granite.
I like subway tiles but I want something with alittle more pop to it.

You'll know which option looks best once you get your samples. The creams will either look great together or clash, but I would guess the former. If you have a busy granite, sticking to one color in the bs tile is a good idea. Beyond that you are pretty free to pick something with interesting shape, texture, or both. Again, you'll know whether it's right when you see your samples together. If there's any doubt, feel free to post images of everything - paint, flooring etc...

jeannie- did your samples arrive?

RE: Arabesque Tile Question

I used a Pratt & larson arabesque that came in shiny and matte finishes. I alternated columns of matte and shiny in the same color. It added a bit of interest, while still keeping the background color the same.
