I don’t mean literally, since I’m not sure that that’s physically possible. Gravity would make it really difficult anyway.
We’re considering updating our kitchen from its oh-so-chic late 1980′s look. Its functionality is horrendous too– some of the precious little counterspace there is is rendered useless by microwave that looms less than a foot above, and then there’s a horrendously tiny fake double-sink where one sink is bar-sized, which wouldn’t be so bad except that we don’t have a dishwasher so a real sink is a necessity, but I digress.
I wanted to talk about this:
This is the backsplash that I’ve been drooling over. Interstyle (a Canadian company) makes these beautiful forget-me-not blue 1″x 8″ glass tiles. I like them because they’re not your typical 1″ x 1″ tile and I think that the nice horizontal lines would help to visually expand our tiny kitchen. There’s a nice retro-modern feel to them too.
I have no idea how much they are yet, because I haven’t yet gone to a retailer that carries them. I imagine they’re not the most economical choice of backsplash, but it is oh so pretty.
Beyond it’s implications in our own home, I think the shiny and matte textural contrast, the cerulean hue and that retro yet modern look make me think about possible inlay designs for our jewelry. Hmmm.
