Jane’s Backsplash

If you have ever overhauled your entire kitchen, you know how time consuming it can be, and frustrating dealing with contractors and such. It is said to be the most expensive room in a house to remodel. But Jane here knew that throwing a little paint around can make a dramatic difference for a fraction of the cost. Knowing that her cabinets were in decent shape (just a little outdated), she decided to slap on a glossy coat of black paint. She also painted the walls a crisp spring green after removing the horrifying wall paper border. (Have any of you been around long enough to remember how I feel about wallpaper border?) And though I’m sure the appliances weren’t cheap,  you have to admit that her kitchen redo is exquisite! Here’s the before/after shots:

And though the credit all goes to Jane, we like to think we played a little part by painting her backsplash! She had us use gray, turquoise, pearl, and the same spring green she applied on the wall.

And she even volunteered to be our guinea pig as we tried out this funky abstract tile pattern, using long and narrow staggered horizontal tiles. She loved it… WE loved it… and I have a feeling our clients will be asking for this pattern in the future! It’s fun and modern without being obnoxious!
