Bold Turquoise Backsplash

Colour blocking delineates the kitchen in an open concept space.

Inspired by the building's 1960s swimming pool, the homeowner used glossy turqouise subway tiles for the kitchen's backsplash. That hue, paired with grey and white walls, amps up the seaside vibe of the space.
