Hello Fabulistas! Right now one of my favorite trends is copper, but I haven't quit on other metallics. They're a fab way to elevate your everyday interiors. I've noticed lots of metallics in kitchens latelyand not just in stainless steel appliancesthey're popping up in backsplashes, too. Here are some of my favorites. Glowing copper The reflective backsplash nestled amongst large-scale white kitchen cabinets is just one fab aspect in this kitchen. It plays off copper pans hanging along another wall and the polished teak-topped kitchen island. (It's well worth clicking the link below to see the full kitchen tour!)

from Limestone & BoxwoodsUnderstated matte A neutral country kitchen may not be the right setting for a gold tiled backsplash. This subtle, seamless piece makes a statement without stealing the show from the hanging utensils and gorgeous pottery.
