William Duff Architects

WDA designed a complete interior remodel and extensive exterior refurbishment for our clients, employing rich colors and textures to define elegant living spaces. In the kitchen, custom walnut cabinetry and dark granite countertops contrast with the Maple floors. In the bathrooms, glass and ceramic tile compliment Carrera marble surfaces. © 2006 | William Duff Architects | SF 415.371.0900

Hi arro, The backsplash in this photo is a white and cream tile with a black accent tile thrown in here and there. Unfortunately we do not have a close up of the tile installed, but you can check out similar tile combinations online at http://www.crossvilleinc.com/.
