Country Kitchen With Button Backsplash
Designer Kelli Kaufer created this one-of-a-kind backsplash using her client’s prized collection of buttons (plus a few extras bought at garage sales and crafts stores). “I used a double-sided sticky mat,” she says. “Apply the mat to the wall and start placing the buttons. You may want to use the back side of the buttons as there are fewer ridges. Once the buttons are in place, apply a non-sanded grout just like you would grout normal tile. This will help hold the buttons in place.”
The playroom is full of fascinating things with plenty of floor space—and large floor pillows—to enjoy them. Vintage games and books are a large part of the room's fun colors; blue striped shades add tailored smartness to the windows.
