This was actually one of my inspiration pictures for the kitchen, but after living with the shiny backsplash all weekend we’ve decided we don’t want a really shiny back splash. Feels like a bathroom. I see how I went wrong in my color selection for the tile. Honestly, this isn’t my favorite look, but I could live with something like this (less shiny) if It’s what works. Reason for saving is that the countertopsTaj Mahal.
