A Lovely Slate Kitchen

A variety of 4"x4" plant tiles in the Autumn glaze are featured in this smart kitchen. They are set among 6"x6" slate field tiles, which have been cleverly set on the diagonal. This layout is a great way to mix tiles of different sizes. I love how the diamond pattern is repeated in the embossed metal panel over the range.

"Autumn" glaze mixes wonderfully with slate tiles. This combination shows off the art tiles well, without allowing them to visually dominate.

Counter, backsplash, cabinets and floor all harmonize. The warm, textured earth tones blend easily with one another.

Love that tile floor! What a flawless install. Check out how the slate tiles create a sort of frame for each art tile:

Just for fun, here is one more picture of the tiles being installed. Laying out tiles on the diagonal is definitely more of a challenge than on the square, but the results are so worth it when done right!
