moving right along...

The tile guys were here today and my backsplash is up. Yay! Tomorrow, they are coming back to do the grout, and the electricians will be here so I will have more than one working outlet. Meantime, here is what we have been living with:
When the tile started to go up I had some trepidations because it was such an unconventional choice for a contemporary kitchen. But, surprise!! We love it. The picture doesn't do it justice.
We are getting there.

From someone who has been steeped in tiles of late, this is just gorgeous and very Rayna.

I love it! Really warms up the wood and "speaks" to your collection of vintage tins. It is the perfect finishing touch!

The tile is perfect! I am still looking at 'tiles' I painted on my back-splashes because I couldn't make a decision ten years ago! Doesn't it give you a new lease on cooking? Looks great!

It looks so warm and homey. Sort of 60's retro seen through a 21st century lens. Excellent.

Oh wow, those tiles look yummy! I'm trying to pick tiles for my back splash to liven things up a little. I hope I do as well as you.
