The Definition of a Statement-Making Kitchen Backsplash

Fridays are made for a little eye candy, so here you go. This gorgeous kitchen in the East Village has so much goodness happening — the black cabinets and smooth horn pulls, the butcher block countertop, the brass and milk-white pendant light — but the standout feature is undoubtedly the tiled backsplash. Just … wow.

The kitchen, which is part of this House Tour recently published on Apartment Therapy, is decidedly luxe (custom everything will do that). I adore the colors and materials, especially the way the tile breaks against the brick. And you know, Mauviel cookware never hurt anybody.
