I usually play things safe and go the traditional route when it comes to the "style" of my home. I really love the modern look of a tile/glass mosaic backsplash and I wanted to go for it. I think the black cabinets and stainless appliances in our kitchen automatically give it a modern feel, so I figured adding a modern backsplash would blend.
So I sent George to Lowes with a general idea about what I wanted and he facetimed me when he got there and I chose my tile. Efficient no? I would have gone with him, but I had a sick kid at home (turns out Nicholas has pneumonia). Anyway... I love my tile choice. Gorg!
A little hard work by George...
... and my backsplash was complete.
I really am in love with the way it turned out. I think it just changes the whole look of the kitchen. I'm currently trying to decide if I want to change out the switch plate and outlet covers to a dark brown. George likes the white. Could that be because he doesn't want to part with his time and money? Hmmmm?
What do you think? Do you like the turnout? Would you switch to the darker outlets and switches?
