Spot On Tuesday

Hello. We are back in the swing of things around here. My children started their first full week of school yesterday after going back for a few days last week. Say it isn't so! Starting school in mid-August seems cruel until you get out in May!

Today I have my spot light on tile - specifically vertically stacked tile. It is a more modern (dare I say, fresh?) way to set tile than the traditional brick lay and also more "fresh" than horizontal stacked tile, I think. This style of laying tile can be used in bathrooms, on backsplashes, and even breakfast nook walls, as you will see in the examples below.

This kitchen has a reeded front vent hood (last week's Spot On Tuesday post was all about the use of reeded fronts) and the vertical tile vibe discussed in today's post.

The two-color vertically stacked tile on this breakfast room wall looks almost like wallpaper. It has more depth and character for sure though.

I really like the look of vertically stacked tile, especially with dark tile and a mix of two colors as seen in this post. What about you? Would you be bold enough to be more modern and fresh lol?

Please let me know!

Happy Tuesday,
