My friend is currently renovating her 80's-style kitchen to a white farmhouse kitchen. It's beautiful! There are a few finishing touches and she still has to figure out her backsplash. Oh the backsplash! She's stumped. I went over there the other day to check out her samples and turned them all down. I think she should do subway tiles, but she wants warmth and is thinking stone. Those small details are little but can make or break the look of the kitchen. One of the styles that she did was panel most of her appliances but kept her commercial-grade stove stainless. I like how it keeps everything clean-looking and cuts back on the metal.
