It is so fun to do different backsplashes! This customer wanted the backsplash to resemble the beautiful mountain view out of their windows! They even custom painted their outlet covers to match the color of stone. Turned out fabulous country :)
Here in Southern Utah we have a lot of plateaus, which also make a very fun backsplash to mimic!
Doing the windowsill in the granite is also a nice touch, it ties in with the stone, and give a better shelf to decorate with!
Always be creative, and enjoy your countertops! Granite is awesome because it is custom :)
