The geometric pattern of the backsplash tile is visually captivating without being overwhelming, and appears light and delicate, despite being a bold gesture within the space.

1. Glazed Porcelain TileDesigners: Wanda Ely, Tawnya Clark and Scott Norsworthy of Wanda Ely Architect Location: TorontoSize: About 300 square feet (28 square meters); about 18 by 18 feetHomeowners’ request: A rear addition that includes a new kitchen with a banquette area and mudroom, in a style that’s bright with touches of light wood inspired by their Scandinavian rootsBacksplash: Glazed porcelain tile inspired by woven textiles. “It features a beautifully subtle variation in color and texture, which we feel provides an important accent of visual interest within a palette that is otherwise predominantly white, verging on minimalism,” says architect Wanda Ely. “The geometric pattern also plays an interesting dialogue with the herringbone geometry of the white oak flooring. We like that the backsplash provides a bold, modern gesture, but that it is composed of individual tiles with wonderful tactile qualities that beg to be touched and evokes much older traditions of textile making.”
