Hi there :)
You are exactly right. The top row of cabinets are only 12" deep so we had to build a bulkhead behind them in order to secure them to the wall.
Thanks!

@bpclark98ag the toilet is wall hung, so the tiles go straight to the wall.

This is one great, creative home! There's not one thing I didn't love (and I'm not fond of white all over the place!) My favorites:
The baseboard wall
The kitchen magnet wall - so educational for Noah
The wallpaper in the family room
The colored drawers in the little dresser in the family room
The fabulous cork boards in the office
The bathroom wallpaper
The Scrabble tile floor
The stairwell windows
The bird decal above the trees shower curtain
Noah's bed
The mahogany wall art in the master bedroom
The wood wall in the white bathroom
The accent floor tiles in the bathroom
The wall surfaces by the front door
And the big round chair!
Magnificent, Katie - hope you and your family enjoy such an inspiring home!

"Katie wanted to do something interesting in their compact powder room and saw an opportunity to inject a little fun without making a huge commitment. She ordered Scrabble tiles from China and installed them herself. “I was met with a lot of questions and confusion from our project managers and trades, but in the end, everyone loved it!"

There are approximately 7,000 Scrabble tiles on the floor, each individually laid by Katie. The actual installation of the tiles took two full days to complete. “I had the entire floor designed beforehand, and my husband and I came up with approximately 60 words that are hidden in the floor,” she says. The words include cities they have lived in, family members’ names and inside
jokes."

@ Patricia Mendys, I knew someone with a Cat's Meow collection who displayed them really well - she placed a very small shelf (really just a picture rail) about a foot from the top of the ceiling in her kitchen, painted it the same color as the wall and lined the room with them. They drew the eye up and keeping them all in a line like that kept it from feeling like clutter. Or maybe you could paint the picture rail the same color as the tiny cat each piece has to make them stand out a little more?
