"A backsplash is one of the focal points of a kitchen and it should be something you really love and something that makes a statement. I choose our Diamante White Marble Mosaic and I couldn't be happier. I liked the Diamante because it tied together glam and the modern farmhouse look. In my kitchen, it truly steals the show and ties together the cabinet, the tile floor and the décor beautifully. I highly recommend our Diamante if you are looking for that glam farmhouse look. In addition, I would recommend our Beveled 2x4 Carrara and our 4x4 Carrara Hex (shown below)".

"When I was designing my kitchen, I was in-between off white and white cabinets and I really wasn't sure which one would compliment the Diamante backsplash the best. My contractor advised me that using a white cabinet helps bring out the marble mosaics natural beauty and allows it to shine through without competing. The solid white cabinets were perfect once installed and tied together my backsplash, kitchen mosaic tile for floor, and décor.

"Seal the deal from start to finish, from backsplash to tile floor to décor! - the last step is to find décor that works seamlessly well with the other elements of the kitchen. A few of my favorite décor options include a chunky wooden white clock, large iron cast light fixtures, and tarnished wooden framed mirrors. Etsy is one of the best places to shop for farmhouse décor and as an added bonus, most of it is customizable so that you can make sure your décor fits your kitchen and fits your style!
