Clean and Natural
Besides adding a natural feel to the kitchen, Polished, Tumbled River Pebbles are easy to keep clean. There are many tones and colors of pebble and the outcome can be changed to coordinate with your color scheme simply by choosing slightly different grout colors.
To completement the river stone backsplash, I created
mosaic lighting fixutres to match. Please go the my Lighting page for more Custom Mosaic Lighting Ideas.
Tradition and Innovation
This mosaic backsplash was created to adorn a centuries old wall in a kitchen renovation in Antigua, Guatemala. Locally produced artisan tiles were integrated with collected ceramic pieces by Montiel. It pays tribute to the home's heart,"Martita's Garden."
For this kitchen bar in Brooklyn, NY, salvaged marble was combined with glass gems, underneath which are mermaids, references to the New York City harbor, and area subway stops popping up here and there. A wall shelf and coordinated hanging pendant lights complete the design.
