THIS OR THAT: MOSAIC KITCHEN BACKSPLASH!

Which of these two kitchen looks do you like better.

The white kitchen with the blue mosaic chevron pattern backsplash?  Or the kitchen with the dark wood cabinets and the Moorish looking mosaic tile backsplash?

Which do you prefer.

I like both kitchens definitely! But if I had to pick a look for my house...it is tough but I would pick the 2nd kitchen if you can believe! Normally I always lean towards the light and bright so picking #2 is truly a departure!

What do you think?  If you had to scoop up one of these kitchens and put it in your own home...which would you take? Please vote in the comments below!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I love them both! I love the blues in the first photo but the simplicity of black and white never goes out of style.

  2. Definitely no. 2. The first one reminds me of that BArgello stitch needlepoint pattern that was so popular in the 70s. In other words-it looks dated, not timeless.

  4. Number 2...love the colors in the first but I'm afraid the pattern would make me a little dizzy...still, I really like it, but number 2 feels really good to me (and I don't normally like wood tone cabinets).

  6. Number 1, all the way. Thanks for the inspiration. I'll consider it in my kitchen remodel.

  7. Both beautiful, but #2 might be a bit more timeless...in my opinion, of course! :-)

  8. I love 'that'. Class colors, a great pattern and rich wood is too hard to refuse.

  9. Looking at the pictures I would say the first one... but seeing it in person I would probably go with the second for sure- they are both great though!

  10. Absolutely #2, so much less of a commitment. The pattern and color can go in many directions, something I feel is important with something so permanent

  11. The ikat-inspired tile is beautiful and fresh and certainly on trend in number 1 but the design is maybe little too trendy for our taste. Who wants to live through a kitchen remodel every 5 years? Number 2 is interesting and classic and has a more personal feel.
