We have all heard the expression "less is more"
How true it is. Especially when it comes to interior design. Restraint is often as important as embellishment in some situations. Take this gorgeous kitchen featured below. The detail of the cabinets, the variation of materials, and the ornate moldings work beautifully together.
BUT, what the heck do you put on the backsplash?
The solution was simple......keep it simple.
There were so many different textures and materials working together we did not want to complicate the issue. We also did not want the backsplash to take away from the elegant acanthus scrolls on the cabinetry.
With these things in mind, we chose to go with a polished marble micro mosaic in a soothing cream tone. It carried the warmth of the cabinets down to the countertops, while creating interest with subtle texture. The result was absolutely perfect.

Materials featured below:
Countertops: costa esmerelda granite
Tile: 5/8x5/8 crema marfil polished mosaic
Island (baking surface) calcutta carrara Marble Honed
Floor: chiseled limestone (versailles pattern)

  1. Granite is a natural stone which is quite unique since, unlike man-made materials, these natural stones will show a variation in colour and texture to be used as kitchen worktops. With this in mind, the remodeling of your kitchen will gave it a beautiful look by the use of granite.
