For everyone tired of the white subway tile trend (and we know you’re out there!) here’s something to cleanse your palate: Ten subway tile backsplashes in all colors but white!

Now, don’t get me wrong: I still appreciate white subway tiles and think they can look clean and chic. But even I’m ready to admit a little color is a welcome change. Here are ten new takes on the subway tile backsplash, from grass green to golden yellow, and even a rich cobalt blue.

How do you feel about the subway tile trend? Are you forever white, or do you prefer color?
