Mixing Metals

For today's post, I wanted to answer an interior design question. People frequently ask if they can use different metals in a kitchen. My recent project in Tucson answers that question beautifully. We installed copper counter tops beneath the stainless steel hood & range top. Metallic ceramic subway tiles add depth & sparkle to the back splash & provide a nice contrast against the alder cabinetry. I love the way this kitchen came together & I know my clients do too!

Wow, the tiles are sure neat. Didn't know something like that existed. Probably because I haven't had a chance to design a kitchen!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

I love that kitchen. I never thought of using copper as counter top material. Brilliant. How does it wear?
