Featured Kitchen Backsplash Design - Herbs

Our Herbs Collection has proven to be an undeniable favorite for kitchen backsplashes.  The pretty bundles of herbs - Sage, Basil, Rosemary, Oregano, Peppermint and Chives - are fresh and cheerful.  These kitchen backsplash tiles will awaken memories of your summer garden, in all its blooming glory, even through the coldest winter.


This kitchen is a great example of mixing material - natural stone tiles with multi-colored ceramic tiles.

The Herbs artwork was derived from the works of Annie LaPoint, a California artist known for her rich watercolors of fruit, flowers and topiaries.  You can see more of Annie's art at Penny Lane Publishing.  Some of the designs in our American Country Collection were licensed from her work.

The accent and listello tiles can be used together and configured to fit a number of openings in different sizes over the range or kitchen sink.  See below for some examples:
