Stacked marble tile backsplash

Our kitchen backsplash was installed recently, and we're really happy with how it turned out. We went with Saltillo's stacked marble tiles and got a pretty decent price after shopping around for estimates. GT Flooring had the best price, and we ended up ordering all our basement flooring through them as well.

 






The first and last photos are the best representation colour-wise. My lacklustre Photoshop skills seemed to render the middle photos a bit on the yellow side. There's really nothing yellow about them - they're a classic Carrera marble.

The basement is coming along nicely and we just returned from a trip to Vancouver, so I'll have updates on both shortly. I found lots of lovely furniture in my jaunts around Gastown and South Granville, but haven't taken the plunge on any big-ticket items. My wish list includes a coffee table, a bench for the front door, an area rug for the living room and a light fixture for the master bedroom. I'm still putting some thought into all my options and will likely make some decisions in the new year.
