Wow! That came out awesome! You should kiss the tile installer ;) for the great job!

Lovely, simple and elegant behind the stove feature. That tile really has some beautiful variation. May I ask how expensive it is? I am looking for something in the white, slightly gray or taupe family and the pipe smoke could be an option.

I can't say it any better than the above comments, it's just lovely, simple, elegant, just the right touch. Perfect, perfect choice. I can't wait to see the rest!

Hello Marmoreus,
Nice clean results.Do you know what joint spacing your installer used? What color grout did you choose to tie the White and Smoke colors together?

Sparklekitty,
My price list has the 2"x6" "Heirloom White glossy" retailing at $28.89 ft2 and the 2"x6" "Pipe Smoke crazed" retailing at $31.66 ft2. As those are retail prices, I expect that they can be had for a bit less if you hunt around.

Gorgeous! I love the clean, quiet elegance of the colors and lines. Love the rhythm and balance of the elevation. This is one of the most successful range hood, backsplash combinations I've ever seen. Congrats! When will we see the whole kitchen?

RE: finished backspash pic

Thanks so much everyone! I've loved seeing so many of your kitchens finish up--they are beautiful! So I really appreciate your comments.

Thanks shaughnn for helping to answer sparklekitty's question. I think that is about what the retail price was. At the end of our build, this tile wasn't in the budget, but because of some issues we'd had with the tile and granite people and to just get the darn thing done, our builder gave us a big discount on them. Otherwise, I was going to use the Horus Art subway tile and just do all white.

For shaughnn--the installers butted the tiles up to each other and since they are handmade and uneven, they sanded (not sure if that's the correct tile term) some of the edges to facilitate that. The grout color is Tec Standard White 931.

I am hoping to post the finished pictures soon. We've been moved in for a month now so I need to do it!

Thanks again!

Thanks for the information Marmoreus. I think I like the Gramercy Park better than the Horus Art Broadway series. Which Horus Art series were you considering?

I was considering the Tiffany crackle series. If you've seen willow decor's or katieob's kitchens, they both used that tile (in the Bianco/white color).

Oh, that does look nice. Sometimes you look at all the busy multiple tile pieces and forget how lovely something simple can be. Love it. Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.

marmoreus - it's really beautiful! Congrats!

Would you mind sharing the name of your handles/pulls? Thanks!


 o
RE: finished backspash pic

Thank you, all you kind GWers!

remodel-mama, the handles are Amerock Highland Ridge. Nice, hefty handles (and knobs). I like them a lot. The place I ordered them from had great prices and they shipped pretty quick. See link below.

Hi - I just happened on this thread, because I'm comparing teh WZ grammercy park (heirloom white) with the Horus Art tiles. I would love to see photos of Horus Art if anyone has used them in white. Also, mam -- how are you liking the WZ? I assume what you have is crackle, correct? Any issues?
thanks! Beautiful, just gorgeous backsplash!

RE: finished backspash pic

very nice picture . okey

RE: finished backspash pic

I love my WZ tile and have had no problems with them. I've splattered all kinds of things on them (including tomato-based sauces) and they clean up perfectly.

Two people that I know of used the white Horus art tiles in their kitchens and I think they look fabulous:

Wow! really nice and the color change is subtle but still stand s out enough to be a great feature.

I will clip this for my file when I get around to the backsplash.

RE: finished backspash pic

I know this is an older thread but lovely kitchen!
I am considering the pipe smoke for my backsplash, I'm waiting for a sample.
I'm hoping it won't be too dark with my off-white cabinets.
