The black and white tile backsplash in a traditional harlequin design provides an instant pop of contrast along one wall of this otherwise neutral kitchen for an eye-catching effect. By using these direct color opposites, the silver tones of the stainless appliances and brushed nickel cabinetry hardware blend with the rest of the kitchen, with the black tying in the color of the granite countertop.

A diamond patterned backsplash with a weathered look sits behind a metallic cooktop in this traditional kitchen. The neutral tones of the countertop and cabinetry are accented by a bright green piece of artwork above the stove.
The stainless steel range seamlessly blends into the Carrara marble countertops. Multicolored pattern tiles offer a decorative touch, standing out against the white subway tile and accentuating the new range.
“I wanted storage above the hood since you can never have too much,” says homeowner Lynielle Long, who included just two sets of glass doors for glassware and china storage. A wall of marble tile set in a herringbone pattern is easily wiped down and adds subtle dimension. The countertops utilize two tones of quartz: “Blizzard White” on the counters and “London Fog” on the island.
Chef-grade appliances underscore top-notch details that went into this beautiful transitional kitchen's design. A herringbone brick floor, Shaker-style cabinetry and a diamond-pattern backsplash all contribute to the soothing neutral palette.
