I was looking for something different for the backsplash in our new contemporary kitchen and wanted something with some texture and pattern but not too trendy looking. I came across this tile and thought it would be perfect. It is! The iridescent, matte and gloss variation in texture is just enough to make the tile pop without going overboard. Our installer had no complaints and it went up pretty quickly. It's like a bit of jewelry in an otherwise neutral space. I love it!
