We love the combination of colours created with this kitchen’s stunning tile backsplash, bold drapery, and deep-green cabinetry. The fun ikat print on the luxurious drapes soften the bold, geometric backsplash, making the space feel cosy rather than jarring.
Turquoise tile carried up to the ceiling infuses this space with colour and texture, a perfect counterpart to the kitchen’s scenic view. Classic ivory-painted cabinetry and a dark area rug prevent the space from feeling too cutesy.
Injecting pattern and vintage appeal into this Brooklyn kitchen, ceramic tiles are the perfect contrast to the home’s brick walls and exposed wood ceiling beams. Soft, olive-coloured cabinetry and tailored, honed-finish countertops are a timeless addition to the room’s overall design.
Small mosaic tiles create a major graphic moment in this modern kitchen in an apartment with classic bones. Plain-front cabinets in a high-gloss finish fade into the background to let the statement wall design become this room’s focus.
We’re totally charmed by this kitchen’s stunning, high-contrast tilework. Packing some major graphic punch, the black and white design makes way for saturated colours like the unexpected orange interior of the glass-front cabinetry.
