When it came to the finishes there were a few things Joy new she wanted and a few things I knew I wanted so we came up with a must-have list.
1: Floating Shelves
2: Marble Countertops
3: Mint Green
4: Cement Tile Backsplash
5: Brass Accents
Below you’ll see three options I created for the initial design direction.They all cross our must have items off the list but have slight variations on each. The first option was to use the mint color on the cabinets and then tile the backsplash up past the floating shelf, ending it at varied heights as a design feature. The randomness breaks up all the clean lines and carries the eye through the kitchen.
The second option utilizes one Oh Joy’s own tile designs (she is coming out with an Oh Joy for Clé tile line) and I applied it in a random pattern but tiled it all the way up to the top of the wall. In this one I kept the cabinets white and let the tile stand out on it’s own.
And finally, the third option was using one of Oh Joy’s favorite tile shapes (the scallop), on the backsplash. In this option the color comes from the tile but to keep it from overwhelming the space, I had the tile only go up to the floating shelf.
Have you guessed which one we went with? Below is the chosen option rolled out to the rest of the kitchen so you can get a better idea of how the finished space will look!Construction started this week! Follow along on my and Joy’s Instagram for some more behind the scenes progress and of course I’ll be sharing some progress and the finished space here as well. Stay tuned!
