White Coastal Kitchen Features Aqua Tile Backsplash
Aqua-colored tiles pop against crisp white cabinets in this gorgeous coastal kitchen. Barstools line the beadboard-backed peninsula, providing a spot for impromptu dining. Fresh fruit and flowers add lively splashes of color to the space.
This coastal kitchen and dining area features a long wooden dining table under an iron light fixture. White-painted wood chairs with patterned blue cushions surround the table. Blue bar chairs with nailhead finish provide extra seating facing the adjoining kitchen, while a blue subway tile backsplash in the kitchen provides a bright splash of color against the white cabinets. A wood inlay floor ties both spaces together.
Coastal Sitting Area in Decorator Showcase Garden Room
Designed by Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes, this coastal sitting area in the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase Garden Room features a teal sofa and woven armchair placed around a light-colored coffee table of metal and wood. Tall curtains with a neutral striped pattern help to frame the space.
A large picturesque window provides a beautiful view of Martha's Vineyard from the large soaker bathtub. A sleek floating double vanity features vessel sinks and wall-mounted faucets, while the tiled walk-in shower showcases a rainfall showerhead and porthole window.
Colorful Modern Tile Backsplash in a Bright Coastal Kitchen
Change up your backsplash. A new backsplash, especially one with a unique tile shape, gives the whole kitchen an instant makeover, such as in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winning space by Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors. Choose tiles that are on sale or discontinued to save some money, and ask the store to check other locations to make sure you can get as many as you need.
