Handmade Tile Project of the Month
The Broadway Kitchen

The Broadway Kitchen
The Broadway Kitchen
Using one color, in this case  Oatmeal , in a single size can provide a lot of visual interest, creating a very stunning space. These homeowners chose a running bond pattern for the main field, while using the same tiles in an angled, herringbone pattern, resulting in a fun look, behind the stove. To add some color they chose the Broadway border pattern, tying everything together.  Click here to order samples for your project today.
