Design Notes: Like a great fabric, the glass tile backsplash in this kitchen pulls this room's color theme together with aplomb. The backsplash pattern was designed by one of the homeowners-a graphic designer who also works out of the home. The red, yellow and turquoise circles of the tile match the colors of the custom cabinets, and the kitchen's colorful and sprightly appearance are an extension of the rest of the home's motif. While the d├ęcor is whimsical, the owners are serious about cooking. Paperstone countertops were installed because of their low maintenance. A double oven unit plus a warming drawer give the homeowners the appliances they need to cook for and entertain guests. The house is a bungalow originally built in 1908, but this kitchen was part of an addition completed in 2009.
