Monte Sereno Tuscan Custom Home

This Tuscan beauty is a perfect family getaway. A grand entrance flows into an elongated foyer with a stone and wood inlay floor, a box beam ceiling, and an impressive fireplace that lavishly separates the living and dining rooms. The kitchen is built to handle seven children, including copper-hammered countertops intended to age gracefully. The master bath features a celestial window bridge, which continues above a separate tub and shower. Outside, a corridor of perfectly aligned Palladian columns forms a covered portico. The columns support seven cast concrete arches.

I've always liked the incorporation of antique, even historic bronze or cast iron pieces into the home - pieces that otherwise may have gone to the smelter. We rescued an antique fireback salvaged from an old sea captain's home in our residence. A friend incorporated an old bronze plaque into their design scheme. Lit well, they glow...

I think you could glue it into place with construction adhesive, before the tile is set. Will have to support while glue dries. Backsplashes on stoves do not get that hot, and tile will add support.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Cons of CopperDiscoloration. This is the flip side of the pretty patina that copper develops. If you're attached to the new-penny look of shiny copper, you'll have to be diligent about resealing. Check out examples of aged copper countertops to determine if or how much you'll still like them years down the road.
