Tile was on my mind today.  If you’re perusing ideas for new construction, a remodel, or just adding to your “future homes ideas” folder, we’ve got quite the collection of stunning inspirational photos for your backsplash needs.  There are so many great styles and colors to choose from, it might just be a little overwhelming  (you can tell by my abundance of photos).  I just kept finding beautiful option after beautiful option!  Here are some winners…

Miniature stainless steel tiles give an industrial edge to this contemporary kitchen.  They look great against the all-white cabinets and Calcutta marble counter tops.

This is the opposite affect with bamboo-styled marble mosaics paired with stainless steel counter tops.  The unique cut of the mosaics creates a very dramatic and chic look.

This is a great look!  The combination of rustic stacked stone paired with stainless steel appliances and dark wood cabinets is very sharp.  It almost has a contemporary farmhouse feel, especially with the glass milk jug lighting fixtures.

If you’ve ever watched a Candice Olsen design show, then you’re familiar with the Penny tile backsplash!  This is one of my favorite tile options and is available in a variety of metallic finishes.  Add a color with your selection of grout.

I find that my personal design style is always changing to some degree, but I would have to say that I am a Country girl at heart.  I love the comfort, coziness, and relaxed feel that it embodies.  I do love to add a bit of Modern elements into the mix to make it more current.
