    These are particularly pretty... They most likely are a custom shelf possibly walnut or a more exotic. Any custom shop can make with ease! If you don't want to do custom or don't have a shop nearby... Online has tons of floating shelves...
    Good Luck... Visit http/www.DesigningRichmond.com for other kitchen remodeling help!

8. Penny Tile Mosaic by WaterworksThis backsplash in a San Francisco kitchen brings the bold with a penny tile backsplash and matching graphite grout. Soapstone counters and black outlet covers add more darkness and depth on the bottom and pop against the crisp white dinnerware and cabinets up top. Walnut shelving bridges the two.

Penny tiles are round in shape and usually between ¾ inch and 1 inch in diameter. Making their appearance in the early 1900s, they were typically made of unglazed white porcelain. At the time white was perceived as more sanitary and believed to not “hold sickness,” says Caitlin Walker of Mercury Mosaics. Colored floor tiles later became popular, as well as patterns, such as borders and flower designs. Today penny tiles have hit the design jackpot — likely because they look great in nearly any space, new or old. Here’s how to use them right.BacksplashesKitchen and bathroom backsplashes are two of the most common applications. The benefit is that a backsplash isn’t such a huge commitment in terms of area. Penny tiles can create a subdued, textural installation, like this Waterworks penny tile backsplash in a 1950s-style home.

Open shelving provides storage and easy access for frequently used dishes and glasses. The warm Boos walnut shelving plays off the cool graphite tones of the penny-round backsplash. Penny rounds: Waterworks

Backsplash is too dark, but like the floating shelves and the wood vs. white cabinets.
