INGENIOUS BACKSPLASH

Here's a terrific solution for a colorful and unique kitchen backsplash that won't look like any other home OR break the bank. I had seen reverse painted glass as a clever backsplash, but never before had I seen fabric in this role until I spotted this on the in Kelly Black's NYC apartment on the New York Design Hunting website here. Take some favorite fabric, whether it's a wild designer pattern (like this Josef Frank design) or something more sedate, and sandwich it between 2 pieces of glass and secure it to the wall. No grout, no seams, no elaborate installment. The fabric is on display, but protected and you can switch out the fabric from time to time should you grow tired of it. What do you think? Like it? OR what about commissioning a work of art on a canvas roll for the same purpose?? Hmmmm.....
HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND, EVERYONE!

KITCHEN CHARM


I love this kitchen!  
I found it on Pinterest (where else?!!) The brightly hued art against all of the white is stunning. I also gravitate towards the marble vs. the generic granite that everyone has these days. Granite smacks too much of headstones in a graveyard for my tastes and once any trend takes over 50% of the population, I am automatically tired of it. The absence of upper cabinets is totally refreshing as well - makes the kitchen seem more like a real room, don't you think?
I hope you have a terrific weekend and don't forget my Mother's Day sale is still on for a few more days! 20% off everything in my Etsy shop (except the pillows). Just type in code at checkout: MOMS20
