Artful Kitchen Redo

blog_cathibacksplash

Artisan combined with ‘off the shelf’ tiles make for a super-cool backsplash that reflects the individuality of the mixed media artist/owner.    Designer, owner and contractor collaborated on the backsplash design by incorporating four sizes/shapes of standard stainless steel tiles with ‘jeweled’ areas of cast bronze tiles the owner had collected (hoarded!) over time.  Find these artisan tiles at  http://www.lowitzandcompany.com

The artist/client’s self-described dream kitchen includes a ‘Blue Star’ white and stainless professional gas range and sections of bowling alley lanes for a generous countertop. Salvaged birdseye maple cabinet fronts add another aesthetic dimension, to create this near-art piece.   Tons of fun, hospitality focused and definitely one of a kind.

The ‘Blue Star’ range comes in 750 colors – how will I ever choose for my dream kitchen! http://www.bluestarcooking.com
