Jungalow Kitchen Remodel: Tile!
Last week, you guys chimed in on our kitchen tile choice (thank you!) and after much deliberation, we finally came to an agreement. Admittedly, there was a bit of a tug-o-war between me and the hubs. I was leaning towards the green flowers, and he was leaning towards the terracotta and cream leaves. We threw one more option into the mix too and then went back to Badia Design to make our final decision. When we got to Badia, we realized that for the last couple of weeks, we were debating over a tile color that didn’t exist. The tile we thought was terracotta and cream leaves was actually terracotta and blue leaves. Like bright blue. I have no idea why it looked so cream in our photos–it’s mind-boggling, check it out:
I mean…this is like a total blue dress/ gold dress situation!! Because check out the actual color of the tile in the picture below. It’s red and blue–straight up. And since we didn’t love the idea of a red, white a blue kitchen, we moved on to other options. This time we grabbed all of our favorite designs and took the samples outside to make our final choice.
And here is what we chose:
Jason got his leaves, and I got my green. Win, win. And then, for the backsplash, I honestly really wanted the little hex tiles in green, but they have a six-week lead time on those little dudes, so we went with the mini subway tiles in green. We’ll save the hex for the bathroom ;) The thing about the tiles is that they’re handmade, so each one is slightly different and when you line them all up in a row, the Moroccan tiles look so stunning, and really quite jungalicious…
