Did I miss the mark on my backsplash color/design?
June 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
When I chose my backsplash design, I fell in love with the crackled subway tile from grazia rixi in mandorla (the chair rail and flowered pencil tiles are of the same line and color though the glazing on the beveling tends to make the shades look different than the subway, unfortunately). And I also fell in love with the cracked glass tile in the center (vista frost)....when I chose them, they were all the exact same shade of subtle gray/blue in the samples and even when they came in, but now that they are up on my wall it is driving me crazy that the cracked glass looks green and doesn't seem to match. Something about it all just bugs me and I can't help feeling like I totally missed the mark with my tile color selections here. If I was going to do a different color in the middle I would have chosen something more obviously different....now I just feel it looks odd. I'm regretting not going with the subway in a herringbone pattern in the middle like I originally planned and now it would be too costly to change. Opinions? Any ideas on how to decorate around it on the countertops to make it make sense or does it look ok? I believe I just had something different in my head and so now I'm just staring at it constantly wondering if I am just being too critical. I took a few pics with different lighting to help show the issue.
