sneak peek: best of backsplashes

by anne

My own kitchen backsplash is an ugly brown tile that looks like something left over from the 1970s. I do my best to cover it up with my cutting boards and try to forget it’s there. I’ve always dreamed of a simple kitchen with a little extra kick in the backsplash area (growing up, my mother displayed tiles she collected from her travels behind our kitchen sink). Here’s a round-up of some nice solutions that our sneak peekers have cooked up. — Anne
