Look at this colorful, playful backsplash! This Portland kitchen was an entry in the recent Room for Color contest at Apartment Therapy, and we just fell in love with the way that the tile livens up the space. The kitchen is in a Craftsman bungalow in Portland, Oregon. Cathy the owner says that she describes her style and palette as Contemporary Pacific Northwest, and that this palette is inspired by the deep woods, clear waters, and bright flowers nearby.
Also, those wonderful tiles on the backsplash are made from recycled glass by a Portland company called Stardust Glass. You can see more about the kitchen remodel process at Cathy's blog, Olio United.
