3 Kitchen Backsplashes That Steal the Show
Designer: Page Gandy of 3 Fold Design Studio
Location: Austin, Texas
Size: 250 square feet (23.2 square meters)
Homeowners’ request: An overall soft, monochromatic feel with texture and interest to enliven the space.
Backsplash: Hand-painted terra-cotta tile (Fatima decorative field tile in Mezzanotte color, 4⅝ by 4⅝ inches, by Walker Zanger). “Because there were no upper cabinets in the kitchen, we knew the back wall had to really pop without being overwhelming,” designer Page Gandy says. “When I saw this tile, I knew it would be perfect for the space. The client took a bit of convincing, mocking up large poster boards with pictures of the tile, but she was thrilled when it was completed.”
