we often get asked by our clients and followers for details on how to achieve the look of some of the most popular installations on social media. to get a certain look, it’s about more than just the tile choice; it’s about grout choice, cutting, installation methods, etc. each #tileblueprint will give you the secret “recipes” behind some of these iconic looks.

one such look is the backsplash (above) in designer emily henderson’s kitchen. emily is a host with hgtv and a best-selling author with a strong commitment to approachable home style for everyone. for this #tileblueprint, we’ve broken down this installation from her recent modern english country kitchen project into 3 easy steps:

1) select clé weathered white 2″x6″ zellige tile
2) stagger the tiles in a classic subway pattern, with a minimal grout joint
3) finish with avalanche glazed tile grout
