Kitchen Clarity Adventures in Kitchen and Bath Design

Some amazing kitchen backsplashes

08.26.2009 · Posted in Kitchens

Today I’d like to share some really striking kitchen backsplash designs that have been hanging out in my “interesting” pile for a while now.  What they have in common is that they are all on a grand scale – very inspiring, and although few of us have this much space to work with, we can always dream.

This first one is like a french country kitchen on steroids. I think I would like it even better of the geometry inside the arch had more relationship to the curves of the arch - what do you think? The sconces are a great idea, although I have some doubts about candles wearing lampshades ….

Still blue and white, but with a very contemporary twist – I love the counterpoint here between the circles and arcs on the wall and the sleek geometric hood. Is it mosaic, is it wallpaper? – I don’t know but it looks good.  (photo Paul Barbera via dwellingsanddecor)

The grand scale of this tiled wall really dwarfs the kitchen, doesn’t  it?  The Moroccan home of designer Agnes Emery – those underwater colors would be very calming and cooling in a hot climate. And look, more sconces, although with such an enormously high ceiling, how else could you light the counters?( materialicious)
