Old-World Charm. Several varieties of marble and limestone on the backsplash, floor, and counters help give this kitchen its inviting old-world style. The backsplash also features variations in scale for added interest, showcasing a mosaic tile niche set within larger square tiles. All of the stone is honed, and some is even distressed, to emphasize the kitchen's aged character.
The contrasting cherry and black Jay Rambo kitchen cabinets give a sophisticated backdrop to an array of hidden surprises throughout this traditional kitchen design in Newtown, PA. The island has an oven tucked away at one end, while drawer fronts on the island provide easy access to hidden power outlets, and the cabinets include handy pull-out spice racks. A matching mantle hood frames the tumbled marble backsplash, which includes a recessed niche over the cooking area.
