My Love Affair With Subway Tiles

I'm not quite sure when the obsession began. Possibly on my first trip in the actual NY subway (am I the only one who loves riding the subway?) sometime around age 12.  To this day, seeing a good subway tile in an interior makes my heart race.

I love the marble-esque subway tile finish done in this kitchen.  It adds a glamorous touch to the typical white tile.

I love the vibe of this kitchen.  It feels very outdoorsy with the natural stone flooring!

Black subway tile creates a lacquer-like sheen and adds drama to a typical kitchen.


One day when I am designing my dream home, subway tiles will most definitely be included in the bathroom or kitchen!

  5. I so agree!!! I never tire of those simple, but perfect white tiles. Just yesterday I was pitching the idea to my husband of switching our kitchen backsplash to white subways.

  10. Yes you are the only one who likes to ride the subway- I HATE riding the subway when we're in NYC, I make my hubby cab it everywhere! But subway tile in home decor is gorgeous- I would love to do it in our kitchen or bathroom one day!
