Traditional Kitchen With Mosaic Backsplash and Copper Hood

In this kitchen, the mix of materials was created not by a tile manufacturer, but by the designer. Brigitte Fabri, CMKBD, of Drury Designs, wanted to create a "castle wall" effect in this kitchen, without detracting from the room's focal point — the copper hood. For most of the backsplash, she chose a large scale 12x24 'Crema Marfil' limestone because the larger the tile, the fewer distracting grout lines. Behind the range, a honed glass tile called 'Malaga Cove Wings' by Stone & Pewter was used.
