I first mentioned my love for herringbone backsplashes here. While clicking through my reader, I found the following photos over at Things That Inspire.
Let's zoom in a bit, shall we?
The kitchen is designed by the firm Huff-Dewberry and kitchen designer Beth Barfield. I'm starting to notice a trend in backsplashes done with subway tiles in a herringbone pattern- they're most common over the range. Take a look at these other photos I found on flickr & photobucket:
I think I prefer the tile to take up the entire wall behind the range, rather than the framed look. But, both ways are beautiful.
Here are a few different takes on the tile, keeping with the same herringbone pattern.
