This backsplash and counter is for a built-in hutch that is paired with a backsplash behind the sink and counter wall. The mosaic was designed around a kitchen that was changed from mint green walls and yellow cabinets to a fresh white paint complimented with grey and black tile. Only a strip of maroon tile edging that was original to the kitchen was removed and reused as a color accent. I wrapped “Food 4 Thought” with ceramics, figurines, S&P shakers, small teapots and plates, marbles and tile. Several pieces of the client’s china and mementos also made it into the mix. The sides of the panel end in a casual checkerboard to compliment the black and white marble floor. It feels beautifully ancient and modern at the same time.
