today saw me at HD to see the fake tin tiles and for once they actually had a full stock. Anyway I couldn't decide between the fake antiqued stainless and the fake copper verdrigris so I came home empty handed.
the stainless would go (in tone) with my appliances but maybe that would be too much of that in a 10X10 kitchen which is going for more warmth. I also can't decide if it would go... modern appliances, more aged looking backsplash in similar material.
I like the copper with the verdigris (copper is still pulling me even the fake stuff) but wish they had the much darker copper version they make. meanwhile they have the greenish type. Same general tile style just different colour.
So, it's cork floor, wood counter (basically those two are about the same tone for the moment), SS appliances, and cupboards are TBA. I have been planning on using a creamish colour with a glaze but lately I'm thinking black maybe (at least on the bottom). My sink and faucet are stainless. The idea is to keep some of the 1930 feel, or at least a warm feel.
So....which one? I'm attaching a scan of the brochure. The inset is the pattern they have. The group circled in red are in the store (at least I think the third one which is copper but not as green is available). The one circled in blue is one I like and could order.
Otherwise, I don't see a lot of options other than going with beadboard which would be oodles less expensive and still fits my vision (no way I am doing tile as the walls need too much repair and I already have enough of that around here to do). Actually my kitchen and back porch would be nice in beadboard. (although I'm already doing that in the bathroom so maybe that's too much of a good thing)
